Imma Okie, that cockerel is beautiful. I'm one of those people who can't turn loose of a bird I raised so I've got too many boys as it is, my husband is worse than me come to find out. But yours sure is pretty. You could always build him a bachelor pen and give him a couple girls, that's why I'm in the process of doing. I don't like to eat enough to butcher my little buddies, no one at my house is going to starve to death if they don't eat chicken :)

We got the 4x4's set finally for the pen for the 3 turkeys in the back yard. It's going to be 15x20. It doesn't look too small when you're standing in it, I hope there's enough room. I wish I could let them free range since they're such big birds. But I just know they'd fly right into the front yard where all my dogs are. They can easily get over the dog's 5' fence even with clipped wings. So they'll have a covered pen and I won't have to clip their pretty wings. Got the posts set for 2 other 10x10 pens, too. Even if none of my eggs hatch at Carl's I'm going to try again for Ameraucanas and Dark Brahmas, I want those 2 breeds. Out of the 6 Bantam Faverolles as far as I can tell I've got 5 girls and 1 boy-too cool if that's the case.

My Serama, Channing, is going to have a small pen with a park bench and table and umbrella in it so he can be outside and scratch around like a real chicken when I'm outside. I can't bear to leave him out there overnight though, he's so little he'd get carried off by a beetle :-(


Thank you, Ksane! He may just get his own little area. I told myself that I would be able to butcher the roos, but that's not workin' out too well. I did nearly wring one of my hen's neck the other day when I caught her red handed (the better idiom would be egg on her face) eating eggs! I am now on patrol and if I catch any more eggs broken, the hen gets it!

It sounds like a poultry paradise at your place!

I remember Oreo! I was brand new to BYC and you posted his pic, saying that Sparks looked a lot like Oreo did!

You were SO right!

 

Sparks is Oreo's doppelganger, for sure!

I started the tomatoes, peppers and cabage the first of february. Got the onions in ( 6 bunches ), cabbage, beets, radishes and greens 2 weeneds ago, I was looking at the 30 day weather forecast and am hoping it is right since I put all of the rest of the garden in yesterday, all of it, warm weather stuff and all. Just have sweet potatoes left to do. my kitchen and one of the bedrooms looked like a nursery for a while. My one shelf in the green house has all of the extra plants in it now that it has been staying warm at night. Hubby has the rest of the green house piled up with lumber for his woodworking projects. Can't complain about it too much, he can make some beautiful furniture.

In Henryetta area I am not sure how soon you could safely plant out your garden.

I am hoping I have the flower bed next to the greenhouse chicken proofed  this year, they ate everything in it last year :(  but they seemed to enjoy it, lol.

I tried to start seeds this year I do have a few puny plants, but may need to go ahead and purchase the majority of my toms and pepper plants again this year.  I hope to have my greenhouse built this year, do you heat yours?  How early can you get stuff started in it in this area?

The females are more reclusive and territorial then the males according to what I have read. I hope that the flooding from TS Erin didn't do harm to the ones around here. The deer and ferel hog population is on the rise around here so they have plenty to eat and raising a brood is all about food supply.

 

 I usually carry a camera with me and the last one that I saw was crossing a road, by the time I got stopped and got the camera it had dissapeared into a wheat field.

 

 The back road that I take home has one spot in it where I often see deer, turkey and a host of other critters. One Sat afternoon Teva and I was driving that road and there in the ditch was a doe and a fawn. She had seen the truck all the time anyway so she was in no hurry to leave and we watched them for probably five minutes until she ambled off to the North. I was kicking myself for not having my camera with me that day and when we got home I grabbed my gloves off of the seat and there was the camera. I had forgot I had put it in the truck.

Went to the Newcastle auction. But I was lost and felt out of place so we left pretty quick. They had a gorgeous pair of Buff Op's I wanted and the Silkies. Oh my gosh!! But I didn't have a clue what to even do. lol But if anyone noticed, I was the one with the bright orange red hair. I know I stuck out like a sore thumb lol

Mom of 3 spoiled kids, two equally spoiled Havanese, 8 Nigerian Dwarf Goats, 4 red star pullets, 2 Silkies, 2 brahmas, 7 Ameraucana's, 2 golden pheasants.
