***Chippy- Sorry for the loss of your little one:hugs , For whatever reason...sometimes things just don't work-out. I had gone through that too, as I am sure anyone who hatches has.
***Fisher- I will second Wing on.. looked like there was some good wood burning!!!! ...I never would have thought I would get so excited over materials ...wood- in any form, but preferably FREE..as in pallets and fencing..OMGosh, don't even get me started on fencing!!
Congrats to all the New chicks hatching...and being bought of course:jumpy !!! Lovin' all the cuteness!
I have some seriously awesome news...I mean seriously....It is a GO on the BEES...I repeat..it is a GO on the BEES:celebrate
...now, I do have to wait..cause we are in the middle of many new, wonderful experiences...Hubby says okay to the bees...after we get our bearings from the other projects...GUYS, I am sooo excited about this....I will take any and all info. one has to share on the subject. We do have a few bee-keepers in the area ..I am going to be picking their brains for everything I can learn too. OMGosh...it is going to happen!
We also were able to use part of the yard run to set up the other coop for the turkey and cornishX chicks . We will be getting them on the 3rd of May.
*I have a question for anyone here.....I have a SERIOUSLY broody hen...I was thinking about using her to mother the chicks in the separate coop...to help avoid the use of a heat lamp...and to help her through her issue
...Is this a good idea?
*I also would like to know...If the chicks must eat 'chick' food... and the hen eats 'hen' food...do I stick two different kinds of feed in for them?...I am a little confused at how to handle this if I can use her to mother-heat them.
And on much more serious note...
Morning garb for chicken feeding in the wayy too early am! I KNOW the neighbors are thinking " there she goes, look what she is wearing now..that crazy chicken lady!
"....I understand it is just too awesome for some...
I finally got caught up on this thread...boy you all are making up for the slower weekend...Have a good night everyone-Danielle
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you TOO, Brat- MOTORCHICK!!!!
.......didn't think I'd do it ...did ya?!
