There has been an extension of the chicken order deadline as we will be featured in the Edmonton Journal today and I wanted to give any who read about it an opportunity to get in on this. I will be calling in the order for chicks this coming Friday afternoon to Antsey Hatchery in Saskatoon, Saskachewan.
We will have two work days this spring and then if anyone still has some left over time they can come through the summer to move, feed, water or change their fences around. We will also some people to pick up the whey three times a week from the Cheese Facory in Edmonton. The work days are:
Saturday May 14 1 - 5 pm Clean up of winter chicken coop.....get it ready for brooding chicks, send other layers to the egg mobile for the summer (dirty job, but those who help on this day will get first dibs on all eggs for the rest of the year)
Sunday May 22 1 - 5 pm Build two more movable pens, bring any chicken wire you can salvage from anywhere (its the most expensive part of the whole coop!)
On both days we'll be barbecuing at the end of the day and anyone who wants to bring a salad, etc. is welcome to add to the potluck.
Rigel and I watched Murree give birth today to three beautiful kids one male (Yukyuk) and two females (Yleen and Ynot). They are all up, drinking and happy!
