CSA Newsletter: Session 3, Week 5

This weekend we lost nine of our chickens to a predator, probably a dog. We are adding electric fence around the coops and locking the chickens inside at night to hopefully prevent any future attacks. The chicks may have had a short life, but at least it was filled with playing in the grass and eating plenty of cucumbers and melons.
