I am in Amery. I have my bantams in an insulated coop, but not my large fowl. Leghorns aren't veryhardy. They would benefit from being protected from the elements as much as possible.
The black one is really funny. I wish I could keep her.
Pig pictures!  My husband had 2 days to build that shelter.  I just came home and said, "I'm getting pigs on Sunday".
We got our pigs today! 2 York/Hampshires that are about 50 lbs. This is our first time raising pigs. Should be an adventure.
Good to hear about the horses. I had no idea you broke any BYC rules . . .
Speaking of the bad seller, the state notified us yesterday that they will be doing an inspection of her "hatchery". Also, her flock is not tested! She is a certified tester, but she does not have tested birds. Pretty sure she advertised that she was and she should be with the amount of birds she sells.
That "don't hurt me" in little, tiny letters made me laugh!
I put both of the chicks down. They were both suffering. The wry neck one had something more than that wrong with it. It had blood coming out if its nostrils. I'll have to call the hatchery on Monday and get credit.
So today from work I brought home a Buckeye with wryneck and a Rhode Island white with a smashed foot. I'm not sure how the hatchery managed to smash its foot, but you can tell its in a lot of pain. I should really put it out of its misery. If I decide not to, I'm not sure if I should splint it or not.
I wasn't expecting it, but I hatched out a blue bibbed ducking this morning. It was so cute! But already sold . . . Lol
