New Feathery Friends at SAGE!

The two new SAGE residents
This season we were lucky enough to be blessed with a couple of black Australorp hens to occupy the the gorgeous SAGE coop.  These ladies are learning to be more bold when children throw in food for them and are enjoying romping around eating the tall growing weeds, examining piles of picked weeds and of course, scratching the amazing soil in search of critters!  They've provided some delicious brown eggs for volunteers and they provided some delightful experiences for visiting children.  If you're interested in meeting the ladies, come on out to a Tuesday evening work party (all welcome every Tuesday from 4 - 6:30) or attend the upcoming "Chicken Health" Workshop this Sunday at SAGE with Dr. Vickstrom of West Hills Animal Hospital.

took place May 19th.

Thanks Karessa (our amazing beekeeper) for the hens and thank you again to WillyDWonka Coops  out of Sweet Home for the amazing coop!!!
