Update on Our Backyard Chickens… Wings Clipped, Named, and Tagged.

This past weekend I enlisted the help of a few relatives to assist in catching, holding, and tagging our backyard birds while Donna and I clipped their wings. This poultry rodeo was quite comical but we managed to get the job done a lot faster than I thought we would. We came up w/ some really good names for the birds too, thought we’d share our roster for those of you that might be interested…
