    Fluffy Butt Acres: Stories of our flock

    Hopefully all my pictures cooperate this time... just popping in to say Hi and share what I’ve been up to. Chicks are doing well, I did lose one that was much smaller and clearly not doing well from the beginning. Arduinna has been enjoying spending time at the other farm as there is lots of...

    Fluffy Butt Acres: Stories of our flock

    Lucky is 100% back to normal, and happy and healthy. Roostie is doing well, we still haven’t had a chance to remove any of the pus, but he’s quite active and behaving normally, with almost no indications of pain other than a slight limp. General update: I've been super busy lately, and am...

    Kat’s Journey into Chicken Keeping

    I like the higher protein feeds. I now feed a 18% protein layer pellet which is available here. Prior to finding the brand I’m now feeding, the store I was purchasing from only carried a 16% layer pellet and 20% stater crumble, with a “special order” for a 20% protein broiler pellet that was a...

    Fluffy Butt Acres: Stories of our flock

    All depends on the type of bear, availability of other food sources, and coop design. My uncle gets grizzlies, they leave paw prints on the doors and Windows of his cabin, but are easily deterred by his two outdoor dogs. I’m mostly familiar with black bears and have run into them hiking...

    Fluffy Butt Acres: Stories of our flock

    Wow!!! I’ve heard of the Almond fields, but that picture is just mind blowing. It’s as far as the camera can see. Next we need to get you flying one of those drone thingies to really give some perspective. I’m a little disturbed by the destructive monoculture aspect of it, but it is quite...

    Fluffy Butt Acres: Stories of our flock

    Yes, there are only two things the white stuff is really good for, sledding kiddos and tracking predators. Although I’m glad mine is almost completely gone, it did afford me tge opportunity to walk the path of the little Danger Bears (Racoons!) and see exactly where they were going. Apparently...

    Speaking of culling... I am so angry right now. I mentioned over on Bob’s thread that another Farmer here believes he has Mareks and was going to cull his entire flock of over 100 birds. Including not even 1 year old birds. Also because he has some egg eaters, and ones that refuse to roost in...

    Fluffy Butt Acres: Stories of our flock

    Nope, that was last week... and it was miserable! Granted where my uncle lives (also in BC, but further north) it was -20 to -30C! So maybe that’s an average? It was so warm out yesterday I was only wearing a single light hoodie outside.

    That’s how they get you... a creature so unbelievably odd that you’re distracted enough for the drop bears to get you!

    Ribh's D'Coopage

    Thanks! She’s now 95% housebroken, no bedtime accidents, and if I’m paying enough attention to her during the day, outside pees! She’s well behaved at night, a little too bouncy in the mornings, and we are working on leash/harness training as well. She needs a shed and some friends so she can...

    Personally, I’m still not completely ruling out the Murder in the main house as a viable solution... I mean, ummm, option? potential “tragedy”? Just please... no sheep! I think we’ve both been quite clear on how we feel about those nasty things! Arduinna waiting for me to come to bed, she’s...

    Fluffy Butt Acres: Stories of our flock

    Wise man indeed! Just a bare touch of water to open up the flavors a bit... I won’t let the bartenders touch mine, I used to get a glass of water, a pint of whatever beer is on sale, and a double, neat. They always water it down way too much or put ice in if you let them. We were such regulars...

    Love the tower of pots in the background! Is that a wisteria, too?

    I’m happy to announce we are getting a nice, solid rain by the sounds of it! Goodbye snow, hopefully by tomorrow morning

    Fluffy Butt Acres: Stories of our flock

    It won’t last long, thankfully, we are forecast for 6 degrees Celsius on Tuesday... frankly it would have been better if BIL had just left well enough alone and not attempted to “plow” the road with the tractor bucket. It melts best if it is left alone. It’s already gotten much better and is...

    Seeing as Roostie’s hospital tractor is still fully drifted in here is the temporary housing solution we have used And in nighttime mode And did you know goats have gorgeous eyelashes?

    Temporary chicken tax payment? One brave little chicken... she saw me walking to the place the good snacks come from and was attempting to follow And it looks like someone went for a little walk in the woods And scratch was enough to lure everyone out briefly for a quick before bed snack...

    Fluffy Butt Acres: Stories of our flock

    Not my cup of tea... DH walked into work today... he made a run at the drift with the tracker first and then this afternoon BIL showed up and wrecked most of my little walking paths with the tractor. I cope with the dreaded white stuff by following consistent paths through it and slowly...
