Yeah, unless you have a coop to set up & a run to build. I want to set some eggs, but refuse to do it until everything's ready, otherwise I'll have month old chicks in the basement 'cause I have no other place for them, to say nothing of a very unhappy wife.

Always mark eggs when a setter starts if other hens have access to the building.

 

I wish I still had ours. I'm not sure what happened to it. It may have gone in an auction.

It was a work of art my siblings probably didn't admire.

 


I wish I was going fishing. Have fun.

:frow  My fishing partner wanted me to go after Crappie with him yesterday, but with all my mower problems & trying to wrestle it onto the trailer an inch at a time from 20' away, I didn't have time, and sure wasn't in the mood to enjoy fishing; I'd just have thought about what I had to do.

   I understand not having the time, but not being in the mood to fish?

That's about the size of it. Why should they work if they can make more money on welfare, generation after generation

I have three problems with them going in, one is there are no adult birds to guide them, second several of the red rangers plop themselves in the doorway,and since most of them still huddle on the coop floor they are found huddled on the ground by the ladder. I built the coop four feet from the barn and extended the roof to the barn. Then I put a metal person door to the run that blocks the end. So I can enter and change the food and water or just reach in and shut the pop door. So it is an enclosed corner.
I do have a few Christmas chicks in another coop that are roosting, but that is it.
@ChickenCanoeWhat bands do you use for your chicks and adult birds? Mine are all LF. Thanks

Good deal on the predator issue. My daughter would love to have a horse. Don't have the time or resources though. There's also too much uncertainty in travel for my work at the moment also.

Works the other way around for me. I would have a full fledged farm if it were up to me and the kiddos. Cant seem to get the wife on board(mainly due to the travel for work thing). Haven't been able to find her weak spot.
