Yes, I Bought More!


Last week, I bought seven more chicks.



Why did I buy more since I have five laying hens?



One reason is that I want to use chickens to teach Sarah Beth a little more responsibility, especially as her chicks start to lay and she gets to sell the eggs to earn some money.


Another reason is for a buffer; I keep losing chickens, and I want to have enough that I can absorb the loss of a few.  (Does that sound heartless?)


Mostly, though, I just enjoy having chickens, even the added work that having chicks brings.

In case you are wondering, here is what I have now:
for a total of eleven!
