|This week we worked on the additions to our chicken house and run, which I now call the “chicken annex.” The building on the right we have used for three years. This is the perfect house to raise baby chicks. We placed our order for 50 chicks and expect them to be delivered to the post office in May. This time we choose Barred Rocks, White Rocks, Araucanas (gotta love those blue-green eggs!), Silver-laced Wyandottes and Buff Orpingtons. We ordered one Araucana and one Wyandotte cockerel. We’ll let them run with the Buff Orps and our current Golden Comets and see what we get.
