I would like to introduce you to our newest additions-- 51 chickens!
These sweet little things are going to be layers, providing eggs not only for our family, but for the poor and malnourished. Our girls even provided a job for our brother in Christ Felix, who built their hen house. I love it.
Charlton has been staying super busy feeding the girls, and trying to keep them warm. They do not have their feathers in yet and our nights, surprisingly, get very cold. Because we live in the village and don't have electricity, (just solar power which we love) so a red lamp is not practical or accessible. We actually had to purchase a little coal heater that Charlton has to get going at night when the sun goes down, and tend to in the wee morning hours so our chicks don't freeze. I love my hard working man.
We'll keep updating on our girls, really looking forward to that first egg!
