It’s been more than a year and half since Sarah in Illinois welcomed her first chickens. She is here today with an update on her flock.
7 – Number of chickens still happy and healthy.
2 – Number of breeds of chickens still on my wish list (Leghorns and Ameraucana).
4 – Number of chickens my stepdaughter put charm bracelets on.
5 – Average number of eggs I still collect every day.
3 – Number of weeks a 50 pound bag of feed lasts.
1 – Number of wheelbarrows of corn I still have left to crack
0 – Number of chickens that will leave the coop if there is any snow on the ground.
100 percent – How happy I am that I decided to take on this adventure.
Between their bracelets, disdain for snow and hand-cracked corn, I think you have some pampered hens, Sarah. (Although I think aversion to snow is fairly common in chickens.) It’s great that you’ve been able to keep them healthy and happy and keep receiving eggs from them. Your enjoyment of them is obvious.
