Farm/Family Activity

A few days before we moved we started letting our young barred rock hens out of their protection.  They are 3 months old now.  They are large enough, and they have to get used to the other hens and roosters before we move since they will all be living together in the eggmobile.

 They were kept in the eggmobile at night to roost for the last 2 nights at our rental home to become familiar with their new "home"...chickens are creatures of habit and they return to the same place every night to sleep.  Here they are at our new farm being let out on the first morning!!

No feed supplement needed here!!  They have so much to scratch and peck for...a whole 6 acres!
Thankfully, the previous owners of our new home gave us the keys to the barn before closing to move everything over slowly...that was a blessing to take our time!  We got it done in a couple of days.
Christian turned 7 on the 19th!!  He is a fun-loving, adventure-seeking, weapon-loving, sister-protecting, always-giving boy!  We are so blessed to have him in our family.
Bowie knife is the present of the year it seems...he is very excited to have the same knife as his big brothers!  Don't you just love that sweet face?!
