Chicks on the economic outlook

Today the third batch of chicks arrived at our local farm & ranch store. It will also be the third batch to sell out within hours of arrival. In normal years each batch lasts a week or more. The chicks are telling us something is very different this year.

The guy in front of my was a first-time budding chicken rancher with lots of questions and needing to completely gear up. Others are tuning up existing flocks.

The chicks say there are lean times on the near horizon.
