First, an update from week 16 regarding our flock of 60 chicks. They are over a month old now and have moved to a coop in the fields. They are very energetic and healthy little girls. They stay in a protected run when they are outside to keep them safe from hawks, etc. Every few days we pull the coop down the bed so that they get fresh grass. The love to eat anything green that we can throw at them. Today they got some bok choy leaves that didn't make the cut for the CSA.
Meanwhile the 2-yr. old flock got a new patch of weeds to work on today. They are happily stripping off the seeds of the annual grasses that are such a nuisance for us.
