Moving Day

                                        Moving Day

Today we are going to have to move the new chicks, Delaware and New Hampshires, to new quarters. They are now 4 weeks old and ready to move from the brooder to the small house. While we are cleaning it out and getting it ready we will let the old ones, Delawares and others out. We will watch them and try to keep the predators at bay. They should be laying by September abd I also paln to eat a few of the New Hampshires. Today is another pretty day.




New Chicks

Well I got the flooding situation corrected with a well placed ditch filled with gravel. Last week the hatchery sent 53 new chicks. Half of these are Delaware and half are New Hampshires. I guess we will try to eat some of them. Tonight will be cold and we are breaking out the heaters and heat lamps. I hope to have them raised and laying by the fall and therefore have more egg production. We had a coyote attack 2 weeks ago and I lost one of my grown hens. This time of year the pups come in and the coyotes ar every aggressive!I have broccoli, lettuce, arugla, and onions planted as well. Looking forward to spring and the summer to come.




Warm up and flood proofing

       The last week of January and first week of Febuary at Hanging Mountain was productive and rough. My son finally got all the old chicken stuff out of the flooded house and on the pasture. He dug a ditch around the chicken house and I believe, hope, and pray that this manuever takes care of the problem. That may be his last major project on the farm as he has officially joined the ranks of the employed! We are very proud of him.

          Last week the girl's water stayed frozen all week and Carlene and I had keep taking heated water down to the birds. Now  with the warm up things are better and they are laying like crazy.

          I am order maore chicks this week for delivery on ar about April 1. They will be Delawares. That is eggsciting!
