I was planning on starting our ‘No groceries” experiment in October. I was waiting for our chickens to start laying and for us to butcher the roosters. Unfortunately our neighbours dog got in the pen recently and killed 50 of our chickens. I was devastated. Those chickens that are left will likely be so traumatized that they won’t be laying for awhile. Since the weather is nice, I think I am going to try and do the experiment as than planned. If I can get a chicken coop close to my house made this week, then I think I will go and buy 10 hens that are already laying, and move the rest of the chickens down. I was really counting on at least having fresh eggs and milk. Good thing my boys like to fish. . . Hopefully we will be able to survive. . . .
