Of the seventy something chicks I got last year, we managed to put about twenty-two roosters into the deep freeze, and I ended up with only thirteen hens. I have had a few neighbours inquire about purchasing farm eggs off of me. I couldn't keep up with the demand between four families. So I decided to purchase fifty Red Rock Cross chickens-all pullets. Frank wasn't to impressed with me. We don't exactly have space. Oh well.
Frank put some screening across the henhouse on the inside for the chicks. They sure do love the sunshine! We have also been picking them a bit of grass everyday. They really enjoy the green stuff!
