A New Life, with Chickens

Nice coop!

Some breeds have nicer roosters than others. But we just find them too noisy, and so add a few more chicks every couple years. It's a very tiny investment in chicks. I mean, they cost $3 or so. Then, of course, you get straight run chicks from your own fertilized eggs, which means more roosters to cull.

That said, it was really fun having ducklings hatch from my own ducks. But afterwards, I did get rid of my last drake. He added a dimension of complexity to their care that I am glad to be without.
