The chickens really enjoy a cold strawberry on these hot days we have been having lately. Of course, I think they would be this excited about a strawberry at any time, but it makes me feel good to give them something cold when they are so hot.
With plans to build a new chicken coop/palace this year, we ordered some new chicks to expand our flock. We ordered 4 Marans from a local farm, but when we went to pick them up and saw all the baby chicks, it was impossible to leave without 2 extra. We were interested in the Marans because they lay the darkest brown eggs and we really enjoy the range of colors. The extra chicks we picked up are Welsummers, which are another very dark brown egg layer.
