This weekend, we took things easy. We saw Iron Man 2, went to a book sale, ate dinner with friends and experimented with our csa veggies.
I also spent a lot of time with my new camera in hand. The chicks like to pose for me, especially Saffron.
The girls roosted, preened, napped and ate.
We have added crushed oyster shells to their coop. They will eat this as needed. The ground shells (or grit) help break down the food they eat. We have teeth, they have grit.
While the other girls did their thing, Mei decided to relax in a nice, cool dust bath. What a ham?!
We have a lot of folks asking, so when will the girls start laying eggs? Our best guess is July or August. We can't wait, but until then we are purchasing our eggs from Evergreen Dairy Farm at the downtown Memphis Farmers Market.
We'll keep you posted!
