At some point, I have to jump in with both feet! 😄

I'm going to hatch my own chicks!

I love hatching.  Started my first flock (this time around) with chicks from a home made incubator, and have hatched every year since then.  Where are you going to get your eggs???

I've never hatched before and I'm also finishing my incubator tongue.png Nice! I'm going to collect them from my flock, in effect all the chicks will be EEs since those are the only roos I have.

Are you putting a thermostat in your bator?  A fan?  Have you looked at some of Rush Lane's videos????

That's the part I'm working on now, the wiring. I reckon I've watched about half of his videos, a lot of help!

Wow y'all are way ahead of me. lol I did get a Eburgess and Parks seed catalog. I am still making a list as to what to plant.

I would like to plant a few small sweet pumpkins or squash to make pies out of maybe y'all could tell me what you grow for pumpkin pies. :)

 

I was thinking of buying 3 chicks this spring right now I am down to 3 hens and 2 are just a year old but one is going on 4 years old. We are only getting about 6-8 eggs a week.

We have been buying eggs for the first time in 4 years since I started raising chickens. They are free loaders! lol

 

Congrats on your pineapple growing roots already dan!

The best pies are made from Golden Delicious , Cushaw and Dickinson pumpkins . In that order IMHO . Only the Golden Delicious are small .

IMO, the best pies are made from what ever you consider to be the best squash.  The secret is a bit of molasses in the filling, and a good home made crust.  Yum!!!

Caught Bubba's uncle last night.  Clyde went the way of his predecessors.  Total up to 5.

So I was cutting up a pineapple earlier (it smelled amazing by the way, too bad I can't eat them hit.gif) and I found seeds in it, guess I'll have to try and grow those too! lau.gif
