Today we took delivery of 100 day old chicks. The 'Country Boy' had been busy with the staff preparing the hen house ready for the chicks to take up residence. Water holders were bought and wood shavings were given by local artisans for the floor. We have also bought the starter food and special vitamins drops for the water. Lights have been set up to keep the chicks warm for the first few days.
Next week we will have another100 chicks for laying eggs. The only problem there is we have to keep them for up to 4 months before they start laying. Once we have this small cottage industry under way I am sure it will help us to pay the monthly wage bill.
