At last count, we have 17 girls outside (from 3 months to 2 years) with their 1 rooster, and a rooster run with 6 boys we hatched ourselves.
INSIDE, however, we have 31 chicks (mostly black australorp and red star) in our garage. Most are almost 2 months old but there are 2 a little older. Thank goodness for pine shavings! Whew! And in our kitchen, we HAD 20 easter egger chicks (day-old) but 3 have already died and another 2-3 look kinda bad.
We're ready for almost any storm we get out here but still wish we had a solar pump on our well and solar panels on our roof. However, with my kid's medical expenses mounting and brain surgery looming, it's just not feasible.
Please keep us in your thoughts.
