I finally got my calves for this year! Yay! Four handsome boys. I'm so pleased!
The warm weather seems to have allowed time for my POL pullets to almost all start up laying. Even ones I wasn't expecting to start until spring seem to have started. Since most of my adults have slacked off with molt, I'm pleased to have the increase.
I'll be rearranging chickens again this weekend. It seems I keep having to reorganize things. The Buff Orpington girls are currently without a rooster, so they are going to go live with the Dark Cornish. I'll raise out some of those crosses and see how they do for meat birds while I'm raising up new cockerels. I'll move the Legbars from Grow-out into the BO pen. And the surplus Dark Cornish cockerels will go to grow-out to await their trip to freezer camp. I still have some quail that haven't made it to freezer camp yet, and either need to sell or eat the pheasants, too. As I reduce winter work on the chickens, I'm adding to it with the calves! So much fun!
Hope everyone is enjoying the weather while it lasts!
