If you walk into our home you’ll be greeted by a strong waft of chicken – and no I’m not cooking. We currently have thirty-five chicks hanging out in the basement. I’ve never raised chicks, or chickens for that matter. Monkey and I picked up the chicks a week and a half over and they’ve already triples in size! They’re meat birds. I guess the point is for them to grow fast. They’ve outgrown their brooder and I’m making plans to have them moved to our garage tomorrow.
Eventually they will go to my parents’ acreage to a fancy chicken
coop hotel! My papa designed the coop on the spur so it turned out a little different than what my maman had imagined. I guess that’s what happens when you don’t draw out some plans. We worked in the coop this past Saturday and hopefully it’ll be done sometime next week.
