New Year Chickens

Dear friends,

This new year has blessed us with 20 new chickens for the Big Wave Farm!  Two farm volunteers, Kathy and Catherine, went on a mission to find more chickens for the farm. Keeping in mind the long term goal of creating an education garden space and the ability to be a sustainable farm-to-table farm for the Big Wave community, we are trying to expand all parts of the farm.

Kathy and Catherine made the short trip to Menlo Park to rescue 10 hens and on a different day, adventured down to South San Jose to get 10 more chickens from a residence.  

Except for one bird whom we decided to name Trouble, merging the three flocks went really well. With minor amounts of sparring, the peeking order was established quickly and without the loss of feathers. 

Here are some of our new hens:
