I like having the knowledge to be able to dress a bird if I need to. DH comes from a different thought process than I do. Birds are pets period. He won't even let us feed the girl chicken dinner scraps!!! Lol.
It looks like we are finally getting rain. Been focused on getting the girls set for winter.. Putting up temperary nest boxes and dust bath areas on the covered back porch just to expand their area.. Our coop is small. Good for sleeping in and laying eggs is about it. They have the entire yard with plenty of low hanging trees to roam in. But once the rain starts their favorite dirt bath areas will be mud. Wonder if there is anything else I am missing in preparing for our weather change. Oh well, they are hardy little critters. I'm sure they will be fine.
8 girls, 1 main young rooster, 2 cockerels, 1 unknown EE (too young, fingers crossed its a pullet.) I'll start hatching my own eggs in the spring!
