Spring Addition to the Flerd ( Flock and Herd)
These new additions are expected to be an advanced warning system for birds of prey and any unusual changes around the farm. Since the passing of "yellow feet" one of the Wyandotte hens due to a fatal hawk encounter an increased security system was in order.
They will be an addition to the pest control arsenal. The keets, once adult, will offer their services to control ticks, small rodents with a patrol range greater than the chickens. Though domesticated, they are a little on the wide side!
