Xenia of Rainbow Ranch Farms, Instructor and Hosted by: Jordan Stone of Delaney's Artisan Market in Temecula 1-760-277-8575 .

I have included the hostess ph#, for you to contact her directly, so sorry about that, I thought the email address was enough. Thank you all for contacting me regarding this workshop, I look forward to seeing you!

Start a small business, start a CSA, how to butcher chickens humanely and in a sanitary manner, and to counterbalance the current turmoil of our economic climate.

 

 

We will be building a small coop, mixing a nutritionally balanced feed, learning complete care and growth of chickens, how to get ultra nutritious and delicious eggs, how to "harvest/butcher"  chickens (if that's what you choose), how to have fertile chickens for hatching your next generation of chickens.

This is great knowledge for sustainable living which could easily become a must for our current "economic climate". Use this new found information to feed your family, sell at market or give away to extended family and friends.

There will only be room for limited participants. Come prepared to work and get involved. Everyone will leave with a handwritten syllabus and diagrams of how to do this at home and your own harvested chicken.

Piglets Born Yesterday - 12

12 piglets born to first time mommy, Cheetoe. She was very protective of her piglets while we were moving them to a secure area, while she followed.

 

 

2 at a time, being moved into a warm area for the cold winter night and mommy cuddled with her newborns.

 

Once all the piglets were under the shelter with soft grasses, mommy came in to take care of them.

When these beauties are ready, most of them will go to live on open pasture where they will join our pastured hog herd, and a few will remain here, since they are already sold; From Luau pigs to to pets.

We will see you this weekend for pick-up at the farm!
