Those who follow us have already met our son, Colt. He is active in most of our farm activities, but enjoys the chickens most of all. For his 4H project this year, he asked to have his own particular breed of chickens. He chose the Polish breed for their wacky good looks and clownish personality.
The shipment of day-old chicks safely arrived last week from Ideal hatchery. At his insistance, the brooder boxes are set up in his bedroom so he can keep a close eye on the chicks and their antics. As part of his project, he decided to keep a weekly (or more frequent) blog of the trials, tribulations and rewards of being a small scale poultry farmer. So keep an eye out for his upcoming posts (this is sure to be entertaining, and perhaps even informative!)
