Pecan Oak Ranch

New Flock in Progress
August 25, 2013

Early in July of this year I received a call from my daughter, Cherie, asking if I wanted to add to my flock of chickens. Serendipity strikes again... her call had interrupted my thoughts about building a starter chicken coop that I had been planning for two years.

It seems that my granddaughter, Brittany, wanted to have the experience of incubating chicken eggs. Déjà Vu! What wonderful memories of my children hovering over the old incubator watching the baby chicks struggling to enter the world. So a plan was born. Cherie and Brittany would hatch and raise the chicks until they developed feathers. Then they would bring them to the ranch where they could grow and add to the daily egg quota.

On July 25 the fun began! Enjoy the journey with us.

Cherie and  Randy (I call him "My Son Also") constructed this wonderful starter chicken coop for the new babies. I think they'll be outgrowing it soon.
