Friends are saving their egg cartons for us and we’ve been researching what breed and how many chickens we want to get, on the internet, in library books:
And in the field, at Drumlin Farm:
I was checking out their state-of-the-art chicken coop as much as I was the chickens (the photo shows only part of one side of the coop).
I wanted to ask a Drumlin Farm-er for more information and if they sold any hens/chicks/fertile eggs, but none were around. In fact, Amie and I seemed to be the only visitors. It was cold, of course (definitely below freezing) and rather windy, but so beautiful!
But most invaluable of all is the fantastic advice from my readers. THANK YOU! I will keep you informed on our research and decisions.
