Are you CRAZY?!
Wait... Chickens will eat their own eggs?
What is the solution?
We purchased 4 new laying birds and 4 additional cornish cross... meat birds. The meat birds we purchased will be ready for the table in 8 weeks. If you have done the math, you realize this means we will have 12 full size birds at that time. We will then take our 4 meat birds and our 4 current naughty egg eating hens in to the chicken man for processing. Leaving us with 4 healthy young laying hens- minus the egg eating habit - and the added benefit of 8 whole chickens in the freezer.
And the beat goes on...
This weekend we are getting a visit from some of our favorite people. Next week Jade starts school on Tuesday. Girl Scouts will start back up again soon, and Jade is a Junior this year! Nothing but good things happening here.
