Paradise~ just north of nowhere
How neat, I'm glad you posted this as I wanted to see how the beets were doing for you...excellent.:) 5 eggs...wow, I had better tell my gals to get their act together as we only got 3 today.
Actually, I was hoping the beets would have given us some greens by now. But I'm impatient when I'm hungry.As far as the hens- well, we've been "carrying" them for weeks....months really. No eggs since November! But finally we are seeing several a day. These hens will be two years old this summer. So I think I'm going to keep the biddies that tend to go broody and sell the others to make room for new babies- maybe buff Orpington’s? I hear they do well in our climate. I'm not sure yet. It's good we have a little time before I have to decide.
