New Arrivals

How many is too many? I don’t think we’ve found the answer to that yet, strangely enough. We received 30 guinea hen keets and 25 assorted “rainbow layers” from McMurray Hatchery last week. Such fluffy cuteness, oh my!

We’re only keeping 10 of them, I’m happy to say – 6 hens and 4 guineas. The rest have found good homes already. Still, this will bring the total number in the flock to 22. We started with ducklings because they were cute pets for the kids, but have now turned this whole adventure into a quest for eggs. I think we’re almost there. The rainbow layers will produce colored eggs, fun! The geese have stopped laying but the ducks are producing eggs almost daily. That said, I’m fairly certain that not everybody will make it through the winter. Some of the non-egg laying fowl may find their way onto our plates this fall. With the price of groceries that way it is right now, it’s make food or become food around here. (That’s a joke really, but 22 birds is kind of alot for the suburbs, you have to admit.)
