Chickens at the Dairy


I was going to write a long post about our dinner on Friday night at a local award-winning goat dairy, but Blogger and my Internet provider are conspiring against me. I'll try again Tuesday.

For today, a picture of the farm's chickens that help the owners by eating the bugs in the huge garden, aerate the soil while doing so, and they also supply eggs for the dinners and to sell at the farmers' market in Greensboro.

I'm intrigued by the goat dairy dinner, I hope you get to share it soon.
What pretty chickens! The black and white one has beautiful feathers.

Handsome chooks! I note that you only mention their contribution to dinner in terms of eggs.....

Don't they look comfy. I'm looking forward to your story about the dinner. Hope these ladies weren't part of it ;-)

Jane: Taken with my very old 5mp Panasonic TZ1. Lots and lots of noise, but it makes for an interesting snapshot.

Dan: I think the black and white one is a Dominica, but I had wandered away from Steve and the group so I don't know for sure.

Rachel: Only eggs for the dinner and I'm not sure what they do with the laying hens when they get too old since I wasn't paying attention.

Carolina: Just eggs for the various sauces.
