About 3 weeks ago my sister announced that she was ordering straight run Speckled Sussex chicks for spring laying. Speckled Sussex are my favorite chicken. Gorgeous plumage, pleasant disposition, consistent layers and heavy build so you can eat the roosters. I greened up with envy while rejoicing that she was going to be producing eggs again. Then, out of nowhere, Mr. MDP said that we should order some too. I blinked. See, here is what the chicken coop looks like right now.
How are we going to get ready for chickens in a month? This is going to be a challenge, especially, while spending no money. However, it is done. Chicks on the way; work scramble, here we come!
