Increased Flocks

2014-06-07_babybirdsWell, I tried to get a group shot to show the different kinds of baby poultry, but the birds wouldn’t cooperate for some reason… :)

Our flocks have increased!  We had 7 hens (3 Barred Rocks and 4 Buff Orpingtons).  Now we have in the brooder:

  • American Buff Geese
  • Chocolate Turkeys
  • New Hampshire Red Pullets
  • Barred Rocks Roos and Pullets, and
  • Ameraucana Pullets.

Caring for 70+ birds is a whole different enterprise than when we brooded in a plastic tub in the office.  It definitely is a lot more work, but it’s still fun to watch their antics.
