Chicks have Arrived!

Baby chicks are so very fluffy and cute. Round balls of down with the tiniest wings starting to form.
Our first batch of chicks arrived this week and the barn is full of “cheep, cheep”. They have a zest for life and are dashing to and fro. Even at this young (3 days old) age, they were excited to receive some lettuce sprouts that were thinned during transplanting.

It has been a busy few weeks with seedlings, orchard planting, and getting all of the animals ready to be rotating through our pastures for the summer. – More photos, videos and stories to come soon.

    I love chicks. I remember when we used to rear chickens in our back yard in Accra.
