  • Chickens and Eggs

    When I was young my grandpa had a couple thousand chickens. He would get these in the early March and they sell them in November. It was one of our great joys as a kid when he set up a short cylindrical pen about 6′ diameter that had a gas fired heater and go to the hatchery and get the chicks. Soon it was warm and cosy in the multiple hen house(s). The cylinder kept getting bigger until the small birds did not need it anymore. Then came the eggs and de-beaking the chickens. Finally it was off to “somewhere” and that was the end of the season until next year.
