new chicks

Sammy sold his big white hens yesterday. he didn't make much money on them 50 cent each on 9 of them and 5 sold for 6 dollars each but they are gone and i am glad. They ate like hogs. If I had been able I would have butchered them they would have been good eating.

He spent as much as he got. He bought bantams. 6 or 7 roosters and the rest are hens. One chick is so young I am not sure what it is, rooster or hen.

We had a lot of crowing this morning when the day light arrived. I think he has 14 bantams chickens. I told him the hens would all be setting by April.

But those bantie hens will keep laying until they are ancient and the eggs are so good. Way to go Sammie. Wish he live closer, he would have a buyer.
