"The Meat Garden"....what beautiful imagery that suggests. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it.
I've managed to create dedicated pens a couple times, and then chicken math gets the better of me again and chaos resumes. And allowing my various flocks to free-range together has presented its own challenges as I've found that some birds suddenly change their minds about where they want to be and begin roosting in a completely different pen at night. I'm working through some ideas in my head to begin separating a few flocks from the rest of the groups. My house got hit with a nasty micro-burst today and a couple of my pens got damaged. Nothing major, but definitely more work to do now. I'll get there eventually.
If I could have every chicken breed I ever wanted....Sand hill, Frank Reese,Blosls, Horstman, all of them, my hero's, I would be broke....Can't wait to get a couple more though....debating good RIR against good New Hampshire reds right now....Just know if I do, they should be bred right, that's a big commitment to make....for someone like me that just wants to help preserve them and eat them...
I was the middleman for a friend that was looking for a NH cock, so I bought 2 and let him pick which one he wanted. I kept the other, and I'm pretty impressed with his size and demeanor. Now I need some NH hens, chicken math strikes again! Guess I need to build some more #$%@ pens, too!
