Rene' Littlehawk: Chicken feathers and scratch

I've seen so many people buying chicks this year. Whether starting a new flock or replenishing an existing flock, baby chicks bring delight and smiles to most. They also, unfortunately, bring a bit of work and require some knowledge to maintain in a healthy and productive manner.

Many of our group, some visiting from as far away as the East Coast, had never been to Craig, or seen the storied sage grouse in person.
