The barn for my chickens is finally done! They are moved in and today’s full basket of egga tells me they’re happy hens! Setting up the broody pen tomorrow and hopefully in the next few weeks I’ll have somebody feeling motherly. 🙂
Maybe I won’t miss my hatch season after all!

What kind of treats are best for chickens? I found this article by the Chicken Chick that will help you make wise decisions when choosing nutritious treats for your flock.
Chickens are funny creatures, some will eat anything you put in front of them. Others, like my Silkies Bantams won’t touch anything but layer pellets, rolled oats, and watermelon. When they are free roaming they pick at a little grass, and grab a bug or two, but they are even picky about which bugs are a suitable snack. 😦
I’d given up bringing my Silkie girls snacks from our farm kitchen, but I will take the advice from the Chicken Chick, offer up some healthy goodies and see what happens!
This is my Gavin Flock, they eat everything, but the Silkies will have no part in this feast.
