Diane expounds on the “pecking order” and “cannibal chickens”
When I first decided to use my own laying hens, I thought that I would “process” the older ones at around 17 months, as I’m told is done on most farms…..I don’t really know how edible they are because I just couldn’t bring myself to do it.
The pleasant little break of spring-like weather this January gave me a chance to clean up the chicken coop, a chore that is not for the squeamish.
Observation on Cardinals and Chicadees.
One of Diane’s chickens seems to think she is the “Queen Mother”
