JC Finch : Thank
you for the great newsletter! My husband and I just started with
day-old chicks in March 2008 and we had them in boxes in our laundry
room (that was interesting!) until the weather here in Tennessee
got warm enough to put them out. In late April we put the six
chicks and the little bunny we had bought at the same time into
an enclosure we call "BunPeep Village." Mocha the bunny
"roosted" with the chicks on top of a box in the bunny
hutch and also had chick feed
snacks from time to time!
Here's Mocha the bunny
with some of the chickens roosting at night!
Through the summer the chickens
grew and four of them turned out to be cockerels and one pullet
disappeared, so we traded (plus some cash of course) three of
the boys for four Silver Lace Wyandotte pullets and now we have
a happy family of six plus Mocha the bunny and her friend Momo.
The chickens still share some living space with the bunnies and
share corn with six mallards.
Here are the chickens,
from left to right: Lacy, Zinnia, Rudy, Pearl, Poppy and Dotty,
with the mallards Petunia and Buford and their four ducklings.
