Not only is our sheepfold teeming with new life, with ten new lambs, but also our poultry flock. Ten new chicks have been born in past two days, with more on the way. The photo below shows one of the two nests of brooding hens and hatching chicks.

Our flock has now increased to fifty-five chickens and we are averaging thirty eggs per day from the forty-five laying hens.

Brother Martin de Porres tends to the chickens and is in expert in the various aspects of poultry husbandry.

Continued prayers and greetings from the Chama Canyon Wilderness.

Abbot Christian and the monks.
