Our amazing chickens are slowly increasing their egg production, and this week we actually were able to fill all existing orders! Yeah! We aren’t taking any new orders until our younger flock is in production; 5 months from now or so. Our baby chicks are flourishing and are quite eager to join the adult flock. We regularly have escapees when one of us opens their little rabbit cage to feed and change their water dishes. It’s quite a job to catch the little rasquels, but it’s a necessity because they won’t survive outside yet.
