Our Chicken Journey: Summer

We are easing into summer. The weather has not been too hot so far and the rain has been consistently falling each week this past month. I haven’t even had to water the garden except to add food because the thunder storms have brought the rains.

The big kids have a few more weeks of school and then we will take on the summer with its pool days, lazy afternoons and chicken keeping. Hopefully before school starts back we will have four egg-laying hens. I can’t wait!

Right now, their favorite treats are arugula, apples, corn on the cob, and dried meal-worms. I’ve started composting so at least they are “paying” in poop. They are fun to watch and do some pretty funny things when they are frightened.

One thing’s for sure, we have really enjoyed watching them grow.
