I have good news and bad news.
The bad news, it was really quite hot here yesterday – like 105+ hot – and two of my four hens died. They had water, they had shade, but this was the hottest it’s been in their lifetime (a year and a bit) so maybe it was simply that.
The good news:
New recruits! These are golden-laced Wyandottes (my others are Barred Rock), and my guess is they’re between 3 and 4 weeks old. This should be interesting, introducing young’uns in with the adult hens, but I have about a week to figure out how I’ll accomplish it.
