I was building a coop from some scraps for silkies but am thinking I will use it for the ducks. It has ground height nest boxes, will the ducks use them? I'm thinking not?
On another note I decided to not keep the marsh daisy, twentse and east Frisian gull chicks from GFF. Let me know if your interested in any. I will say the twentse are very fast feathering in.
My hatch of brahmas did not go so well. I had a lot of malpositions, almost all had head between feet. I have another brahma batch going into lockdown Sunday. I did get 3 cute little fluffballs from the first batch though.
Glad you got a reprieve but you really should use that time to find something more permanent. It will be harder to move with more animals IF you have to rent. Plus money you spend on the animals could be set aside to buy that dream home.
Been there, done that and learned my lesson. I had to give up my dogs and don't ever want to be in that position again.
My dd and hers talk of buying a trailer to put on land across from his parents, BUT are going to buy a Seadoo. They're paying $900 a month on rent right now for a three room apartment on the lake. With two kids!! You can't tell them anything though. Always dreaming for that big pay day.
Make getting your own house a priority and start your own farm then. Trust me the animals will still be there. Heck I've given away chicks every year practically. Anyone want hatching eggs come and get them, before I get rid of the lavender EE's.
