New feathery residents

Another spring routine: adding chickens to our backyard flock.

After sending 5 roosters to the freezer last year, we knew we wanted to add a few more birds this spring... hopefully hens this time.  Despite how tasty those birds were this winter in chicken noodle soup, ending up with 5 roosters out of the 12 birds we bought last year was a bit disappointing.  Since W have 6 grown hens now so we bought 6 baby chickens.  One died right away though so now we are down to 5.  Eleven it about right for a backyard flock.

Many sunny afternoons, we've had the baby chicks out in the yard.

Just another spring glimpse of our Life on the Gravelly Road.
