Over the past couple of weeks I’ve noticed that some of my girls have become the “favorite” of the flock if you know what I mean. The roosters have been a little too aggressive with them. My first plan of attack was to get rid of a few roosters (we have way too many) but that has taken longer than expected. Buying/selling chickens in the winter months is really tough! So my second plan of attack was to prevent the roosters from pulling out any more saddle feathers on the girls and there’s only one way to do this… with a chicken saddle.
I really wanted chickens. I wanted them really bad. The farm already had a great coop on the property inside a large, fenced in chicken run. All I had to do was insert chickens… and learn how to take care of them. One Saturday in May, our good friends John and Lanette brought us over five chickens and the rest is history. I had chicken fever. Here’s a looksie around our coop.
