I'm sorry about the attack on the chickens. I'll hope it's not the dog, but if it is, I hope you get it taken care of.
We got the sheepshed cleaned up and ready to turn into a double henhouse. Just need to get the lumber. Fencing and windows are at hand. Hubby went with me to pick up 14 more BCM chicks today (It's CoopScoop's fault!) and I think he's caught the chicken bug now. He was pointing out to me that we have another rarely used sheepshed, a smaller one in another pasture section that could give us another isolated breeding population with a little work, without interfereing with our pattern of pasture rotation on the locker lambs. It was after he saw the adult Marans the guy had. He was drooling over the hackle on the guy's huge roo. He also had some nice Brahmas, which Hubby liked, and some TopHats, which I like to look at but don't want to own. One building conversion at a time, I think. I don't want to overstep myself. (This is me being cautious.)
Somehow I'm now up to 105 chickens. How'd that happen?
