Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

here they are...4 new chickens

Here they are ... the 4 babies. They are adjusting to their new home.. Clay & I clipped their little wings before we moved them into their new home. I have been trying to go out & pick them up daily so they get used to that.. It really helps if they are tame & not afraid of you, in case you need to pick them up later.. I made the mistake before with the older ones and it is quite difficult if I need to gather them up to move them to their coop.  So far these babies are doing fine.. There are 7  resident chickens now. It is amazing how big the others seem now..  and  I am hoping that no more predators come near these.. We lost two last week to a hawk I think...  and that really cut down on my egg production.. getting only 2 eggs a day right now... These new chicks won't start laying until mid July... Keep checking back as I  document how they are growing.. Enjoy your day and be safe.
