May 25, 2007 – Cute Chick

Our favorite chickens are the laying hens as they harbor a bit of wildness and “chickenness” mostly bred out of the meat birds.  We usually get 25 mixed breed pullets to refresh our layer flock.


Here’s one of the layer chicks.  Some of them look like owls, others look like hawks, and some like the traditional barnyard chickens.  These guys are almost ready to head out of the indoor brooder and into the chicken tractors
