Chickens 
The chickens are very happy with the heifers being around home.  Lots of stuff to scratch up and peck at.  Between the scratch feed and warmer temperatures their egg production is really taking off.  Taken 2/16/2008.

Some of My Darling Wife's chickens huddled up against a building on a cold day.  The sun really reflects off this building so when it is cold the chickens really like to group up here.  Taken 11/28/2007.

The new chickens are really starting to get out and about now.  We moved them over to the regular coop and they are integrating with the older ones.  The survival rate of this bunch was a little lower than we are used to.  We are only going to end up with 12 laying hens out of 25 received.  I think Mittens making a snack out of 6 of them as babies accounts for a large portion of that but a couple of them deciding to take a swim in the stock tank hasn't helped the situation.  Taken 8/12/2007.

This is one weird looking chicken My Darling Wife got with this batch.  The company she gets them from usually throws in one free exotic chicken with every order and this one must be it.  I think it is the first one that has ever survived.  Taken 8/1/2007.

The new chickens are sure growing fast.  They are wandering all over the place.  Lucky keeps trying to herd them around.  Where he is trying to take them is beyond me, but he keeps trying.  Taken 6/25/2007.

My Darling Wife's new laying chicks came in yesterday.  What the hatchery calls a brown egg layer mix so who knows what breeds there are in it.  I think the older chickens sensed their replacements had arrived.  They laid more eggs yesterday than they had in a long time.  Taken 5/7/2007.

Two of My Darling Wife's chickens.  Right now they are laying over 18 eggs a day.  The big problem with that is we can barely even give them away, let alone sell them.  We have them for our personal use and sure do enjoy the eggs but I sure wish they were easier to get rid of.  Taken 3/16/2006.
