    Knowledge is Power

    Knowledge is thru trial and error but when someone else makes that error, it makes learning a breeze. -Me
    I'd say I'm just a normal/typically mom. But my husband says I'm far from normal & there's nothing typical about me. Haha
    I convinced my husband to move back to our farm house. I greatly dislike the city. I started populating my little farm.
    I have chickens, ducks, rabbits, dogs and have raised others like turtles, pigs, goats, cats etc.

    In the city I had the typical animal family, cats, dogs (I had mastiffS) (here goes husband saying "not typical"). My largest litter was (2moms) 26 pups. My adults were about 220 lbs.
    Fast forward... We moved back to the country house. I bought 10 chickens. That's a good starting number. We have a lot of predators (even Cougars). I was given a rooster. Then some of my pullets started to crow. I knew I needed more hens to equal it out.
    -This is where someone should have recognized a problem. I was definitely addicted. I would sneak home chicks. I bought so many there wasn't a 6 chick rule for me. I could get 1--2-- or 12.
    -Fast forward
    A friend asked how many I have now. I said oh just a few. Because I did. A few RIR.... My husband overheard and added his opinion. "She has a most 100 of them damn things."
    -Fast forward
    I just filled the cabinet incubator, not full. Hatched 44 chicks & 12 ducks.
    I have several chicken tractors, or mini coops. I have my sick coops. My main co-op. I'm thinking of expanding. Did I mention I have rabbits?

    I might have a farm problem. But if momma ain't ☺ happy, ain't nobody ☺ happy!
