Here are a few pictures of the new chickens we added to our farm. Some are very CUTE, some not so cute, 5 are roosters (so far). All seem to be happily adjusting to our place. They have their own coop and hen pen now and hopefully in another week or two we will start letting them free range during the day.
Yesterday Jackson heard a lot of dogs barking on our property so he drove down to the corner of our field and saw a pack of about 10 dogs all barking at *something* he guessed they had cornered an animal of some sort, although he could not see anything. These were not hunting dogs and had no collars on, but were like some wild pack of "former" pets. He said he was glad he drove down there and didn't walk as he started out. They were just really scary looking and not "friendly".
He is going to talk to animal control today to see what can be done, if anything, about them. We have never seen them before but we have a good deal of woods by our house. So we aren't sure if they are passing through or "here to stay". They were not out there last night so we will see what happens. But it makes me nervous to let my animals out. I hate to fence in our field with electric fence, I don't want to keep out other critters, but we may have to. Time will tell.
Anyway here are some pictures of our adopted chicks:
