Summer Work and Rewards
Life on a farm is something I once dreamt of, never thinking it could ever be a reality. Now I have chickens and bees and my own rows of vegetables, and am the envy of almost everyone I know. Who knew so much work could be so rewarding?
Some Quick Chicken Notes:
We have lost a couple of our little birds in the last 2 weeks. One was a new girl, part of the Ameraucana clan. She never ate enough and just never bulked up. Another was one of the red sex links. She started with a lame foot and then was picked on by the other hens. I will say no more.
Finally, our beloved Eric, White Sebright rooster, passed away after a long illness. He hadn't been well for close to 6 months and all attempts to fatten him up or give him rest from the group did not succeed.
Fare thee well, Eric. Say hi to Tyner for me.
