After carefully talking it over with my husband, we decided that we didn't want to acquire more chicks right now. We both have a lot of work on our plates and although we are set up for chickens and have three girls in our run now, we didn't need another project. New hens need attention as they work into the existing pecking order. It's always an adjustment.
So as we packed to drive the couple of hours to Ventura for the Seaside Feather Fanciers show April 13, we didn't bring a carton for birds. We knew we wouldn't be getting any.
