New Chicks!

     Ok, so we are a little crazy, but we actually agreed to take the chicks months ago.  Hatching them was a 5th grade class project for the son of a good friend and they needed a home.  So here we are with 21 baby leghorns added to the flock.  Not too sure how this is going to work yet, but they sure are cute!

     We are brooding them in a large box indoors for now, but I will be working on building a brooder tractor/broody hen pen this weekend so we can get them foraging right away.  If the build goes well, I will be posting the plans soon.
