In life, there are many things that can have their pros and their cons. My husband just called to say that he should know Monday morning for sure whether or not he is getting a new job. If he does, I will be going on the road with him. Pro, I won't be alone. Con. I won't EVER be alone. And I will have to give up my little farm (as it is). For clarification, he is a trucker. We will be on the road 3-4 months at-a-time before coming home for a couple of days. We are possibly going to be hitting Aurora up for eggs when we are here. I hope she has enough to sell us!
I currently have 15 hens and a rooster 1 - 2 1/2 -years-old. I will be looking to rehome them over the next week. I will only be asking $5. The five Bourbon Red turkeys I have are another matter. I am holding off putting them up for sale until I know for sure I am leaving. If you think you are interested in a trio of turkeys, please do let me know.
This has been an interesting journey. I am glad I took it, and I am glad I have had you guys to help me along the way. I can't believe I am actually crying right now!
I do believe that in the mid-summers I will spend two months at home to raise CRX. It will satisfy my need to watch something grow, and it will be food for the freezer during the rare times we are home, as well as something for the truck as I will be canning (truck stop food is $$$!!!).
I hope to hear from a few people. Processing 16 chickens and 5 turkeys is a lot of work, and I would have to do it in one day. I am not Wingstone or Fisherlady. They can do anything!
I wish I was closer, I would take a couple of those hens. We seem to hatch very male heavy. Good luck on the road!
