Surviving plants, and chicken thoughts.
Compare the rounded beak Above with the very sharply pointed beak Right it is a very noticeable difference. It's one of the reasons I'm intending to quarantine these chickens for at least 6 weeks. I don't want to find out the hard way that the beak issue isn't clipping, and instead is sickness. I don't think it is, and I haven't read about any sickness that causes something like that, but since I'm not an expert on chickens or veterinary science, I'm going to wait and watch for the time being.
The other thing I want to bring up is that I really appreciate those who are supporting us again. Right now, especially going into winter it's hard for us to stick with this. The thanks and recognition we've received from folks who read and friends for inspiring them is really motivating. Also vital to us is the people who've come and given us a hand in person, or gifts, or shared their bounty with us. Thank all of you that are part of our community. Remember, in homesteading, or day to day life taking a small moment to help someone can make a huge difference, be it thank you, or holding a door.
