Two weeks ago we received our day-old chicks in the mail. They traveled well and are growing by leaps and bounds. They have started trying out their new wing feathers by doing a powered run across their cage- pretty impressive! They will be moving to an aviary in our front yard this week where they will have lots of room to exercise, and grass and bugs to eat, too! For this year's addition to our flock, we chose buff rocks, white rocks and partridge rocks as well as some cuckoo marans. By next spring they will be laying along with our older hens.
