Aren't they cute? These are the four new chickens that Sheila and Brad brought to our farm a couple of weeks ago. We think they are a really nice addition to our farm. Even though they are chickens, black chested, white polish banties (?), ... I think, they eat like little piggies! We think we have two hens and two roosters. So far everyone is getting along well, but that could change when the hormones kick in. (It sure did with the bunnies! Another story.) Thank you Brad and Sheila ... they are really fun and have great personalities.
So, what happened? After digging and digging at the roots, toward the end of last season, I gave up ... oops! NOT good! But thanks to Anne and Doug's help, we're hoping to keep the flower bed semi weed free. Doug spread some new bark nuggets down, so we have a great start. Plus, weeding the flower bed keeps us busy while we're waiting for the gardens to dry out!
