Today the new chickens arrived on the farm in style. During the pandemic we gave away our chickens with food hampers . When things settled down and we went to replace them, there was an outbreak of the bird flue so we could not purchase new ones from the bazaar. We were able to purchase egg layers from the teen challenge, but those chickens have a week constitution and are not strong enough for free range and also have a short life span . We have been working to increase our flock so we gathered up eggs from local chickens and had them incubated separate from other flocks . these chickens are about two months old now and got to ride in our new van out to the farm.
I got a message today with a garden update from one of the families we have been helping for a few years now . I am reminded of the scripture that says
They will say, “This land that was laid waste has become like the garden of Eden"
