We had three hatches of eggs that have resulted in 24 chickens. They are getting big, fast! The older two hatches have got most of their feathers now - still a few downy spots here & there. We're starting to be able to tell ladies from gents.
Joe retrofitted a section of the barn into an inside/outside chicken coop. There's a smaller free-standing coop that we've been cycling groups of chickens into - for fresh grass & bugs.
The kids love tending the chickens - Levi always has one in hand.
