They have finally arrived! With a flutter of excitement throughout the neighborhood, families have been visiting our coop and are admiring our fine feathered friends.
The boy scouts from Troop 473 put on a fresh coat of paint, added some mulch and set the hens free in their cute little coop.
We have 4 chickens, but only three are on the farm right now. One has a respitory infection and is recovering on my back porch. We hope to add her back in on Friday.
The girls have already given us eggs and the kids are just mesmorized by the process. I must say that the adults are too.
On Tuesday, Jeff Raska, with Texas A& M Agrilife Extension came out to train some staff and parents about the wonders of working with chickens. I must say, I am quite intrigued by them and yes.., I have given up poultry. Not that I am promoting that.., it just doesn't seem right anymore.
