Chicken count

Yesterday we went from 10 chickens (4 older hens and 6 month olds) to just the month olds.

The four went to a local meat processor (10$ a bird and he plucked, wrapped and chilled, so that to me was reasonable).

The six are exactly a month old and they are at the mini dino stage. They’ve been acclimating to lower temps each day and yesterday the new coop was finished so they also went outside.

Last night I also decided to leave the heat lamp off over night. This morning they were not in a small tight bunch so it must have been warm enough for them.

I’m looking forward to eggs in August! I haven’t had fresh eggs in ages.
