Chickens  
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.
