Well I've seen some nice Hoop houses that would make a nice home. Much sturdier than I've built for my chickens of course.
Now to everyone else,
The ALBC has come out with an updated list of endangered breeds. Please have a look and if possible help preserve one of the many breeds in need.
You may be surprised to see, Rhode Island Reds and Whites on the list. The reason is that there are TWO varieties of some breeds. Commercial and Heritage.
These breeds were at one time a Dual Purpose breed. Heavy for the stew pot and Egg layers for the Omelet. Should you consider either of these breeds look for someone raising the latter.
If you're not into incubating keeping a few birds that go broody is good idea. As a rule I keep a closed flock and either use my limited skills with an incubator or use a hen to hatch. Hens needs some supervision but do a better job.
If I were younger, I'd surely got me some Choctaw hogs.
Have a nice day, get lots of work done.
Rancher, to much to do, Hicks.
