Hey all! thought I would pop by and see how everyone is. Ive been busy and havent been able to keep up on BYC.
Minnie, sorry to hear about your son. I have faith they will be able to figure out the right meds and get him healthy again! Keep you head up stay strong! Will say some prayers.
We have been busy as all get out around here lately. We still owned a house in town here and rented to some friends. those friends have now moved out and we busted hump to get the house ready for the market. hit the market wednesday after memorial day and it seems like people have been in and out of there non stop since. fingers crossed we start getting some offers! i look forward to getting that off my plate.
On the homestead, I have been fighting to break the cycle on feather mites. I deep cleaned both coops and have dusted all of my birds with a mix of DE and poultry dust. will have to repeat the dusting in a few more days. hopefully we get ahead of them. i have some hens looking pretty rough from it. live and learn and keep moving i guess.
Our broody BA has hatched 6 little chicks! one hen decided she was tired of being broody and i think she may have eaten 2 of her eggs she was sitting on so we tossed her back with the flock and tucked her remaining eggs under the other hen. They are so fun to watch!!it is amazing how well they chicks can nestle into the feathers of the hen and just disappear.
Garden is almost all planted and i picked up some strawberry and blueberry plants from the master gardners at the farmers market to plant today as well. Eggs are still selling like hotcakes at the market, so business is good!
Stay well all!
