has been storming here for the last few days so I have been inside conspiring. got some chickens started the other day, so I thought I would post on that. Picked up some barred rock chicks from a local supplier, made them a cardboard brooder to put in the house for a while. got all pullets so I am on the lookout for a rooster as I want to raise a few chickens as well. started with 12 and plan to add some other meat production breeds later. I want a dual production chicken herd.(lol). I was lucky in that the farm I bought has a large chicken enclosure already on it. built with scrounged materials, it is kinda ragged, but will get the job done I think. I plan to designate some nest boxes as eggs and some as brooders so I can keep it straight in my mind which ones I will steal eggs from. Then allow the other hens to go broody and produce next years layers for me. I have also been giving thought to getting my rabbits going. I will most likely raise some on wire and some on the ground and judge the differences for myself. I have heard good and bad about both. I want to find out on my own. Garden is coming along well. Seed corn is already about 2 inches high and looking good. Plants that were set out are going well, growing good with all the rain we are having. still tons of work to do and only me to do it so I hope it stops raining soon and gets sunny so I can get it done.
