How to Care For Laying Hens
Posted By Smockity Frocks On August 2, 2011 @ 11:35 pm In Country Living | 21 Comments
Back in February, we ordered 20 chicks of various laying breeds through the mail . They were all guaranteed to be hens, but if you have watched my latest episode of “Small Talk With Smockity Frocks”, you’ve heard evidence that they are definitely NOT all hens.
And Johnny Cash. (Get it? The Man in Black ?)
By the way, when you see a panicked look on my face in my webisodes, it is because there is little person carrying a chicken in between me and the camera. It is all I can do not to yell, “CUT! I can not work under these conditions! SECURITY!!!”
And then I realize I have no security team, and my production team is a bunch of barefoot little girls carrying chickens under their arms and I continue on with the interview, but that explains the nervous twitch.
So, now that our 19 hens (one extra came in the shipment) are giving us these beauties, I thought I would share some of the things we have learned about caring for laying hens.
