We started in May with 6 chicks. We lost a hen to a predator, and we had to take care of the two rooster problem. So we took Elvis to Bramble Hollow and they taught us how to process a bird start to finish. (Expect a podcast soon about the process) We left the farm with 6 birds to eat and 2 hens to replace our loss.
Don’t let the pictures fool you…it is an us vs them situation right now. The have to establish a pecking order and see where the fit in the flock.
