She will be OK to visit the farm still - it will just mean a 6 hour day with 1 hr on a plane, the rest in a car.
On my next trip over I will have to fly home, set the bators on automatic, spend 2 days with bernie on hatching, then drive to Cavite to deliver the car for Mrs Oz. I will put the car on three small ferries to islands including Mindoro - a small ferry ride from Romblon. What a shame I dont have orps. I could have met one of your relatives at the wharf.
Would they be interested in a trio of mixed mutts?
at this point they are not set up to do anything but allow the other people on their street to get some free chicken adobo
there is a huge hill behind their house that they have been digging into so they can get more flat land
but when it rains dirt & even small rocks come down the hill.
the problem calls for a good solid rock retaining wall
we will probably start sending about p4000 a month over there
& we will see what we can get done by the end of the year
once the wall is finished then we will start with chicken coops & a couple pig pens
i sold some of my buff pullets that i had hatched today
while the guy was here i showed him my english roo
he is 50% bigger than my buff roo
the guy was really impressed but didn't want to pay what i was asking for the britt chicks
by next week i should be able to sex those same britt chicks
i think i'll see how well breeding pairs go
i'll also want to put the best looking pullets in with my adult birds
so i can have more than just the 3 layers that i have rite now.
by cold weather i think i want about 8 hens per breed
that will keep the roos happy
& come next Jan. i can hatch like a wild man
