Today we picked up 6 pullets at Tractor Supply Company. The chicks we'd hatched and survived had ended up being only 8 and usually at least half are cockerels, so at most we'd likely get 3 or 4 hens. These chicks are sexed and 99% likelihoodof being hens, so we'll have our egg layers by fall.
Here is our first run of sugar snap peas. So yummy. All the years growing up, they never made it inside the house. My little brother and I would go out and eat them straight off the vines.
Life springs forth eternal!
