Dirt baths in the garden.
Lounging and eating in my peas… naughty birds.
More dirty baths. Seriously, it is such a funny and cute thing to watch.
There you have it. My feathered babies are getting big. I’m down to seven hens (since one was a rooster) and I should have eggs sometime soonish. I’m not sure if all the breeds start laying at the same time, but guaranteed you’ll know when I find my first egg. I’m so excited to see some return on my investment.
Now that some time has passed I would strongly recommend getting a backyard brood if you’ve been thinking about it. I enjoy it much more than I thought I would. Watching the chickens peck around the yard is just calming and entertaining. We laugh all of the time at the silly things they do and they have been really easy to take care of. Urban homesteading is trendy for a reason…it’s great.
