The newest additions to the Grovestead arrived in the mail two weeks ago. We ordered thirty “broiler” chickens, as they’re called, because we are raising them for meat rather than eggs.
They showed up just like any other package would, except the box had more holes and made a lot of noise when you shook it (kidding).
I had to find temporary housing for them the first day because I wasn’t quite done with their new home, a mobile chicken coop I am building. They were affectionately looked after by the whole family.
By the end of the first day I moved them into their real coop.
I tried to explain to our cats that these weren’t a dietary option for them. Not sure they got the message.
