More chickens!

Chicken palace

The roasters, guinea fowl and layer chicks are all having a grand time in their greenhouse. Feathers are busting out all over, and they are not needing the lights on as much during the day since it’s been so much warmer.

The roasters are heads taller than the laying hens now since they’re hard-wired to grow much more quickly.  In the picture below, a few roasters are lined up with one golden-laced Wyandotte hen peeking out from between.

John is already counting the days until eggs!
