Wow, it feels like yesterday our chicks arrived, small bundles of fluff huddled quietly around the heat lamp. These girls have grown so fast and will soon move to their new homes as laying hens. When the chicks had first arrived, we launched a “Name the Chicks” contest and, out of the hundreds of entries we received, we drew six winning names.
Yes, Swansons is very pleased to announce that our intrepid little brood is headed to a happy place! The backyard of one of our staff members whose lovely family has agreed to provide a giving and nurturing climate for the ladies. While I'm sad to see them go, I know that bigger and better things await (laying eggs! Foraging for bugs!).
So here we are again my friends, but you know what they say about birds of a feather, right? Beyond the cardboard wall big things are afoot for our intrepid little brood. The chicks are literally growing like weeds so we've recently opened things up to give the girls more room to move about. We don't want them feeling too "cooped up" (pun intended)!
