    I scored a batch of 17 week old Cornish Rock x's this weekend.

    I am a very happy camper. I scored 18 Cornish Rock crosses this weekend for $3 each. They were leftovers after the commercial truck came to clean out the broiler houses. They were moved to the broiler house's owners yard where his wife has fed them chicken scratch and cracked corn ever since...

    We ate our first farm raised chicken for dinner last night

    And now I understand why raising my own chickens is so well worth the effort. I had no idea that chicken could taste SOOOO good! Commercial chicken is rather bland; I thought it was supposed to be that way. This chicken, however, was so flavorful and delicious. It actually has a taste that...

    I did it! The meat birds are in the coolers on ice!!

    And guess what? It wasn't nearly as bad as I thought. I had 18 eight week old Cornish Rock x birds. Today was the day. The whiz bang chicken plucker was finally done and it was time for a trial run. So after gathering together various coolers, buckets, barrels, knives, etc. and reviewing the...

    Meat birds and Fire Ants

    I live in south carolina. This has been as especially bad year for fire ants because of all of the rain. Mounds are everywhere. I moved my Cornish Rock crosses to a tractor yesterday but now I am terrified the ants will get them. These birds are so slow moving and sluggish I am afraid they...

    White Leghorn Pullets, 8 weeks old

    I have 30 white leghorn pullets that need a new home. They were mislabeled at Tractor Supply as Cornish Rocks. So instead of meaties, I got egg layers that I don't need. They are outside with no heat and doing great. I am 95% sure they are white leghorns but there is a slight chance they...

    8 week old chicks....leghorn, white rock, Terra Tint, or ??? help please.

    I bought these chicks from Tractor Supply (Mt. Healthy was the original supplier). They were supposed to be Cornish Rock cross. Well as they grew, it became very apparent that they are not cornish rocks. They do all appear to be pullets though, which is a good thing. So.....any ideas what...

    Dog show brag....finally my turn! lol!

    OK, I just have to brag on my boys. My Anatolian Shepherds are 10 months old and are working farm dogs. They are not used to being groomed and crated. But I was encouraged by some friends to take them to the UKC show in Hickory, NC. She told me she'd handle one of my dogs in the ring for me and...

    The kindness of strangers.....HUGE thanks to rrrmamma!!

    I am overwhelmed with how kind people are. For those who did not see my previous thread, Watchdogps (Tiffany) rescued a little bitty chihuahua. She works at her friend's grooming shop and people often dump dogs with them. This little chi was dumped because her owners were moving and could not...

    Need transport help for a rescue dog

    Is anyone traveling from the Columbus Ohio area south, towards South Carolina any time in the next month or so? A friend of mine runs a grooming shop in Ohio and takes in rescue dogs from time to time. She does not run a formal rescue so she has no transport connections. She took in an adorable...

    Help my guess my dog's true breed?

    This is my sweet little dog, Dumpling. We call her Dumpy....lol. Anyway, I bought her a long time ago as a long coated chihuahua. It's pretty obvious she has someting else mixed in but I can't for the life of me figure out what it is. She weighs 8 pounds and has a very soft longish coat that...

    Does anyone here have Dexter cattle?

    Last Friday I went to pick up my new Barbados Blackbelly sheep ram. And while I was there, I casually asked the breeder about her Dexters. I wansn't really planning to get any, although it had crossed my mind a few times. Well she walked us over to the pasture where the Dexters lived and that...

    New dog food passed the taste test

    I have been feeding my dogs 4-Health for a while and the dogs have done really well on it. Well, I decided that I wanted to improve on that a bit so I switched them to Taste Of The Wild. Since it's always a good idea to introduce any new food slowly, I mixed a bowl up for the chihuahuas that...

    What is really in Kibble?

    I don't feed RAW. At least not yet. I do plan to at some point and the Anatolians do get raw meaty bones and organs whenever we get them, but in the mean time I try to feed them high quality food. I have been so worried lately about another recall of dog food. It seems every few months, one...

    My Niece's show jumping video

    My niece is 14 years old and has been taking lessons for a few years now. She does not own her own horse but uses the horses the school has. She has also been playing around with video editing for a couple of years. This video (the one called "Equestrians") is her latest and I think it's very...

    Free Blue Lace Red Wyandotte Roosters in SC

    I have 5 Blue Lace Red Wyandotte and 2 Blue Splash roosters that need a new home (or freezer....lol). I bought 8 chicks in the spring, hoping I'd get enough hens that I could breed them. But I ended up with only one hen so I'll just keep her for egg production and rehome the roosters. These...

    Open letter to the jerk who dumped the dog at my gate

    She showed up here a couple of days ago....the day you dumped her. She would not leave my property.......I guess she was hoping you'd come back for her. We tried chasing her off but she would not go....she just kept watching and waiting for you to come back. Did you think we'd take her in...

    Just discovered an unexpected benefit of high grade dog food!

    My sheep don't eat it! I can put food out for the dogs (livestock guardian dogs) and the sheep are not interested. They actually sniffed it and walked away. I am guessing it smells like meat instead of grain so they don't like it. Now if I could just teach the dogs to leave the sheep food...
