Chickens!

It sure has been busy on the farm, so busy we haven’t even introduced our new laying hens!  A little over a month ago these were little more than tiny balls of fluff, but now they are maturing into real chickens.  Our new flock is a mixture of three breeds: Barred Rocks, Rhode Island Reds, and Easter Eggers. We hope that by early fall these ladies will be providing us and the farmers’ market with fresh eggs.
