New Girls in the barn
The bottom 2 photos are of my summer girls. They are a couple of months younger than the new layers. They have a little more white and some of the lovely bi-coloured feathers. Between the two little flocks, they should make one handsome larger group of very pretty chooks.
I've been feeding them GMO free food which costs only a couple of dollars more than the regular layer mix. It has 2% more protein though which has made a huge difference in the birds' condition. As well, the chook who used to peck her egg open to eat it, has stopped. Even my old girls have started laying eggs with a nicer shell and a more regular size. I've very happy with it.
So anyone need farm fresh eggs?
