Oh, Dreamcatcher, I am hopelessly attached to these girls
Right now I just have 2 hens, and with that few, they really are individuals to me.
I also have 6 chicks that are about 3 weeks old. I'm hoping that when the flock is bigger, I'll be a little less attached to any individual, but that's not looking good either....
They do have constant access to grass in their pen, so they are getting greens at will on a daily basis. Probably just not the same variety as what they get when they're out and about.
Anyway, thanks for taking the time to talk through it with me...
