So, have you ever wondered what Chicken Christmas would look like? Wonder no more! Today at the farm, not HoneyBea Farm, but the farm where I work, Cheryl and I pulled up the remainder of the lettuce and endive so that the freeze tonight can get the last of the buggies before we replant. The chickens got the bounty.
This was a truckload of head lettuce and I bet it will all be gone by morning. Those ladies are some crazy eating machines, but they sure make tasty eggs. Speaking of eggs, we’re back in business, with a whole half dozen today. We’ve already gotten 10 eggs this week, which seems like a bounty, after a winter month of no laying.
And because I can’t say no to a giant tub of chirpy chickies, me and my little chickie picked up a half dozen straight run Americaunas this afternoon. There’s nothing like having babies in the house (that you can put under a lamp in the cellar and stop worrying about until morning).
