I realize that I have really been slacking on posting updates. My first full year is finished with raising chickens (and quail). I'll post more pictures this week but we picked up another 29 chicks (that should all be rhode island reds) last friday and they are in the brooder box for a few weeks.

But after a year, we butchered two dozen chickens (all roosters), lost 2 due to the fact that the big chickens didn't like the miniature chickens, and had two or three die from causes I don't know. The chickens lay eggs every day but the last two weeks one of the chickens have been eating an egg or two before I can get the eggs.

Next on the list is to move the egg layers from the chicken tractor to a real coop so the new chicks can move to the tractor in a few weeks.

And the quail should finally start laying eggs in the next month.
