Who had the last quack now?

Baby ducklings are so cute.   As they were growing we decided we’d let those cute birds waddle around as pets.  We wouldn’t eat those cute ducks.  They were just too cute.  Then, one day, we noticed they were beating up our laying hens.  We kept chasing the ducks away, but they kept beating up on the chickens.  A couple of…

The Sneaky Rooster

When we butchered our turkeys and roosters a couple of months ago there was one chicken we couldn’t agree on whether it was a boy or girl.  We butchered the roosters because they were beginning to fight and nobody needs five of them.  This particular bird in question didn’t look like a rooster.  It was the same age as…

Rotational Grazing for the Sheep

We should have kept track of the man hours Hubby put into this fence.  I can tell you it was a large project that required several evenings and weekends.  It took two different post hole augers.  It took a small tractor repair.  It took lots of concrete, posts, sweat, and a few tears.  Thanks, hubby (and his dad and a…

Chicks’ Second Week

We still have 11 chicks alive!  Woot, woot!  No losses have occurred since the third day of chick ownership. Who knew watching baby chickens could be so entertaining.  I’ll tell myself I’m just going to peek into the brooder for a few seconds.  Ten minutes later, I find myself entranced by the little feathered ladies.  They run around.  They jump.  They…

Baby chicks have been ordered!

I ordered my first batch of baby chicks!  I chose dual purpose breeds, which means they are good egg layers and can also be used for meat.  I ordered females to start.  We may add a rooster later.  I’ve read sexing baby chicks is tricky so I won’t be surprised if we get a rooster after all! I chose…
