On Friday, twelve chickens were delivered to our farm as replacement. I am sad to say, however that the quality of these chickens is poor....nothing like the quality of chickens that we keep here on the farm.
Here is a pictoral comparison of one of our chickens and one of the new replacements......
Ours: (notice the nice feather and comb colors....also notice the condition of the feathers) Now, here are two of the replacement chickens: (the thing that is most striking is the condition of the comb. Notice how it folds over and is so very pale) Whoever had these chickens before, did not care for them by the same standards as we do. And these two chickens are the best of the bunch!
Well, hopefully after a few weeks, these girls will start to look a little better.
Oh, and speaking of lovely chickens. Here are the babies.....continuing to grow....more stunning every day!
