Seriously – I resisted the Tractor Supply Vortex of cute chicks and ducklings for WEEKS.
But, let’s be honest, I’ve never been happy with the relationships we’ve built with our current hens. Standoff-ish. Distrustful. Crabby. I get that friendship takes WORK, but c’mon – all we DO is feed them and protect them. Gratitude much??
I bought 4 pullets – 2 white leghorn, 2 brown leghorn – today and have them all set up in the shed.
And a duckling for good measure.
