The Worst Part of Raising Chickens
Raising chickens has its ups and downs; cute baby chicks, getting all those fresh eggs and culling of the hens. When I first started raising chickens I said no way would I do this but as time went by I have looked at it differently. By no means am I making money raising chickens but I don't want to loose money either, I just want the girls to pay for themselves. The grandson Brandon took Black Betty home today and 3 others went to live with someone my husband works with. He also took Ralph the rooster, we have been trying to find him a home for a while now. He got to be very mean and you could never turn your back on him, I have been spurred several times and I took to carrying the hay fork with me when I collected eggs. I will wait until next spring to replace the chickens when I can purchase them from our local feed store.
