The new chicks have arrived at Ten Apple Farm! This year’s flock additions includes 12 new Delaware layers, 25 Cornish Cross and 6 Red Rangers for meat, and one free exotic (Murray McMurray always throws in a free “exotic” when you place an order for more than 25 chicks). We’ll report back on the “exotic” as it matures and we get a better sense of what it might be. For now, the girls, including Truffle the cat, are enjoying watching the lively chicks as they scurry around their box in the backhouse.
