..I do not have enough on my plate...enough to do and take care of... I went out and bought 6 hens.
They are just a little over a week old and are so cute. We keep them in the laundry room sink.
A lamp keeps it extra toasty in there and it is easy to clean.
Next week Don and I will start to build the coop using this bracket kit.
We have a lot of extra wood from the construction of our barn that we plan to use. The rest will have to be purchased. If you know me...you know this will turn out INTERESTING.. to say the least!
The hens I bought are called Barred Rock and will look like this when they are grown.
They are known for being great egg layers, mild tempered and well...yes - the fact that they happen to be the color of our farm did have some barring on my choice!
