My farm is crazy too. I had a little meltdown yesterday. I've been doing everything out there, but DH thought I was loving it. I've been stressed because I can't stay on top of farm and house and everything else. Feeding baby animals is more important than keeping the house clean.
I agree with everyone else. Check fb or craigslist for eggs if you don't have any friends with birds. Try for $5 a dozen or less. A lot of yard eggs are fertile, just check and see!
Feeding the babies is more important.
Maybe your chillins can do chores when they are of age!
