I made our manager of the poultry department take inventory yesterday. This is what he came up with:
18 layer hens of varying ages
2 roosters, one big, one tiny
5 baby chicks
4 hen pheasants
2 rooster pheasants
1 guinea fowl
2 Embden geese
1 house quail named Rooster Cogburn; Chuck for short.
Thirty-five birds total.
He then proceeded to convince his Dad and I that we should let him purchase two full grown turkeys to live on the barnyard and go to the fair with him this summer.
He’s even got us seriously considering letting him add peacocks to the farm.
I think we may have officially gone to the birds.
