Au Revoir

It's the end of an era down on the farm this morning. We just finished culling our first flock of chickens and they are now moving on to their next plane of existence as stock, chicken and dumplings or, in the case of our rooster Richard, Coq Au Vin. The hens were producing fewer and fewer eggs as happens when they get older and the eggs they did manage to lay they ate. So a new flock of ten Golden Buff hens will be taking their place shortly. And so it goes....
