Chicken Sale

I sold half of my laying flock today, because I only have room to keep twelve of them through the winter. My dad taught me how to tell which ones have started laying (feel how far apart the pelvic bones are), so I was able to set aside the ones that were already laying. I was honest about this with the buyer.

Despite selling eleven pullets, today was a net loss because I had to call the vet for one of the goats. More on that in the next post.

It's kind of turned into a full-fledged essay, which is why it has taken longer than I expected. I'm about halfway finished, and it should (*crosses fingers*) be posted later today.
