New Chicks!

As most of you already know, our hens are not laying as many eggs as they used to. However, we have just recently welcomed some new members to the Lavender Lane family. These new chicks should begin laying this coming fall. When we received the baby chickens, they were only 1 day old. For about 2 weeks, they lived in a cardbord box with only a warming lamp, food, water, and each other. This past Friday, we have finished building a moveable chicken coop, which will serve as the babies new home! The five biggest chicks are now living in fresh air with lots of good bugs to eat and grass to scratch. We hope the rest grow quickly and soon follow their sisters.

Also, this coming week will be our first week of harvests. We expect a lot of healthy greens :)
