The chickens are 12 weeks old
and doing very well.
I have introduced some free choice grit to their diet.
And I have been feeding them a bit of chicken scratch each afternoon.
They l-o-v-e it! And they eat it right out of my hand. :-)
Mark my words, I do believe Miss Loretta will be the first to lay an egg.
I have found her sitting comfortably in one of the nesting boxes several times during mid morning.
