“…our new layers arrived last week. We ordered 125 birds in all, a mix of Black Stars, Red Stars, Pearl White Leghorns and Whiting True Blues that will lay a lovely medley of brown, white and blue eggs starting in fall. They’re keeping warm in the brooder now and will move to pasture when their sweet baby down has given way to more mature feathers. Last season we lost forty birds to predation – and we’ll be looking to our stalwart farm dogs Franny and Dingo to help us keep those numbers lower this year (we hope). They are chained up to the bird houses each night now through November, plied with cookies and high praise, and bought with a nice mile walk early every morning as additional thanks.” Read the latest news from the farm.
