AJ’s Pay Off
You may remember that AJ’s responsibility this summer was to raise the chicks. That story here.
Despite losing many of them to predators
(can you imagine the disappointment of a young kid when he finds chick parts strewn outside the coop?),
he received his pay off.
His final job was to load the chicks and deliver them to the butcher.
You can see the satisfaction of a job well done.
This week, the laying hens moved away from their undergraduate housing
and began roaming freely with the mature hens.
He is thrilled that he will be eating their eggs in about a month.
