I have decided to sell a few layers on Saturday at the livestock auction. We are up to our ears in eggs, and not all the hens are laying yet. So Greyscale (won't stay in the enclosure or out of my garden beds!), Funky (don't need the temptation to breed her with that funky comb), and Beetle and Blackie will go up for auction. I'll take Silkie Boy also, as I am now certain I have at least one black Silkie cockerel.
Hubby counted up the chickens yesterday, and with this weekend's hatch we are at 108 chickens on the property. Add in twelve guineas and three rabbits ....
