    Hello from PNW - it’s been a while

    Over the past number of years I’ve had about 45 chickens running around. No predictor issues for years. I was hit with a trifecta over a year ago with 2 female raccoons that moved into the barn and had kits, new home builder cleared brush and displaced his coyote pack and a Bald Eagle hit me and...

    Have had the Kindle Fire since Wednesday but not a lot of free time to do much until now. I'm on the wifi at home. Page load time is acceptible. Living out in the country I don't really have options for lightening fast speeds from the phone company & cable is not an option. Book reading has...

    Created a monster feeding those dried bug treats

    I have a Chantecler pullet that has always followed me during feeding time and watches all that I do closely. I figured I would see if I could get he to be more friendly since I have never tried to make a pet of her or handle her much. Bought the crinkle package of those ugly dried worms they...

    Finding it hard to read the Hygrometer/ thermometer inside incubator

    The incubator is the Brinsea Octagon 20 ECO with turner. It has the standard glass thermometer so I added a Hygrometer/ thermometer from Walmart and I find with it being digital and dark I can't really read it easily. A flashlight just washes it out. My temps are good. Besides the glass...

    Being the loving DW I am, I gave DH a Dewalt Compound Miter saw for Fathers Day This weekend he tested it out building this frame and I then attached the webbing while he took a nap. Its intended use is for the chicks in the brooder to have outside time in the grass. It is very light...

    Back in April I was picking up peeps at the feed store and I found this little bright yellow peep in the feeder while helping sort some other chicks out for a special order pickup. This was the lone mystery chick that matched no others in their shipment. So to lessen the confusion at check...

    Brought home Egyptian Fayoumi and Partridge Chantecler

    Could not stop myself and added these to the brooder today. I liked the facts regarding the two breeds: Partridge Chantecler - Bears cold weather, good winter layer and nice lacing on the feathers Egyptian Fayoumi - Good free rangers, foragers, disease resistant. Anyone have these...

    Clean up time in the bator

    Last summer I hatched about a dozen eggs in the IncuCube Incubator and there was not much of a mess to clean up so I did not give it much thought this time around with the Brinsea ECO 20. My mistake, this hatch did not look messy but when I took out the tray there was all this icky stuff in...
