We became instant chicken parents when we bought our new homestead. Our new property came with 8 penned chickens and 13 wild chickens. We had no idea how to take care of chickens; we had to learn FAST. So we dove into our new role, researching how to care for our new “kids.” First we had to nurse the penned chickens to good health and improve their living conditions. Then we turned our attention to befriending the wild chickens. When predators began picking them off one at a time in the cold of winter, we knew we needed to “hatch” a plan to protect them. You’ll have to watch to find out what we did… This is our chicken story!
