Four newcomers to the Sun and Wind Farm

October 15, 2008

Head’s up, sheep! There are some new kids in town and they threaten to soak up a lot of loving attention that would otherwise have gone to the Woolly Contingent.

The chicks are Rhode Island Reds, which are regarded as utility birds that can be raised for meat or eggs. We’ll stick with the eggs, if you please.

Another characteristic that will stand them in good stead with us amateurs is their hardiness. They are tough and resistant to illnesses.

For the next few weeks, they’ll camp out in the greenhouse, in a bin that we set up for them. When they’re ready, they’ll move into the fancy chicken condo we wrote about earlier this week.
