The Little Ladies Are Here

They held a poultry swap at the local feedstore this morning, with fighting roosters (the most beautiful) , bantams, meat chickens, quail, and… three little ladies that will grow up to be Plymouth Barred Rock laying hens. They came home with me this morning.

I had to get to work right after, so I hope all is well with them. My coop and run seem enormous, suitable for a crowd of 30 at least. I left them in a large box lined with some of the Japanese Brome I harvested, corporate food, and water.

Predators are a worry, I hope all is well.


About rebeccatreeseed

I am a naturalist raised by naturalists. Treeseed is my earned name, while Rebecca is my birth name. I am of Northern European descent, with a quarter Irish.quarter thrown in. I suspect I was a product of northern invaders into Ireland into Ireland. but hard to say since DNA disproved the family story about Apache blood! I have found some odd ancestors to replace them. Last year I bought 5 acres of pinyon-juniper forest on the side of a mountain in Santa Fe County, New Mexico. I am fulfilling a lifetime dream of a cabin in the mountains and a food forest that will feed me and local wildlife. I want to share this new phase of my life with others that might be interested.
