Meet Delaney (and Chickmunk!)
Meet Delaney! She is a WWOOFer from Green Bay. WWOOF stands for WorldWide Opportunities for Organic Farmers, an organization that connects people interested in learning about organic farming and sustainable living. Delaney will be on the farm for the summer learning how to and helping with all the planting, weeding, chicken care, harvesting and preserving our harvest. She is an English/Biology major who just graduated. And just for added excitement, a friend is borrowing our barn for here wedding this June. Should be a great summer for all. But I expect it will be pretty busy, so I don't expect to blog too often. We'll see!
I'll have to post more recent photos, but here's the little gang. Each chick had a different mother, but all the eggs were raised by Luna. Can you tell who the daddy was for the two black chicks? The one on the lower right is Owl's baby. Spring is definitely in the air and it isn't just the chickens who are raising young ones!
Follow the antics of the Science room chicks and their offspring as they hang out on Maggie's Farm. During the summer, we grow vegetables and raspberries that are sold to Madison's restaurants.
