Pullet surprise - updated
Every spring I'm pleasantly startled when I visit our local Farm and Fleet store for hardware and supplies, and find livestock for sale. Pictured above are the Rhode Island Red pullets ($2.99 each).
I would love to have purchased some for the back yard, but they would quickly have become food for the raptors or the foxes in the woods.
Reposted from last year because they are already available at Farm and Fleet, still $2.99 each. Here's a menu of the breeds available. I'm sorely tempted. In any case they are a cheerful reminder that spring is coming.
