Our First Next Generation

We set 23 eggs in the incubator and hatched 20. One of the chicks didn’t make it two days so we netted 19. I think that’s a pretty good hatch.

We won’t need new layers until late next year so these will go on Craigslist or in the freezer but knowing we can perpetuate the flock is just giving me stomach tingles.

We had the most beautiful harvest moon last night! Of course my iPhone doesn’t do it justice. Fall is definitely in the air up here – 44 degrees this morning – and everything is starting to bed down for winter. The deer are more skittish now that it’s cooling down. I think they know deer season is upon them.

Sorry for the long silence. Be well.
