A new flock of 1,000 chicks arrived this week from Vega Farms in Davis. They hatch them early in the morning then drive them out to us. Baby chicks are just so darned cute! Agustin does such a great job of getting the chick house ready, cleaning (LOTS of cleaning), putting up new corregate to keep the sections divided, getting all the heat lamps in, spreading out the bedding. Everything is nice and comfy cozy in there for the arrival of the little ones. In six months or so they will begin laying their first eggs. We can all look forward to pullets come May or June!
