We started off the new year with new animals!  I worked a deal with CJ Sentell of Ecotone Farm and purchased four laying hens.  We now have two Barred Rocks (not Domineckers), one Rhode Island Red and one Buff Orpington.  They are providing us with eggs and we’re all learning each other, chickens learning us and us learning the chickens.  I got the coop built at the end of last year and now it is finally occupied.  There will be some modificaitions coming to make things a bit easier, but it all works well for now.  Hopefully we’ll have pictures up soon.
