    Since Covid cancelled our travel plans we have been working around the farm doing general updating, etc. Therefore, the chicken idea came up (again) and we decided to do it. Our 11 Wyandottes arrived last Thursday (one rooster and 11 pullets). We started with Wyandottes because of what we read...

    4 year old goose abandoned nest?

    We have a male and female French Toulouse pair that are four years old. They've never been successful hatching goslings but we had high hopes this year! The first year, one gosling hatched but by the time we knew, it was dead and she had abandoned the nest. No idea what happened. Last year she...

    Finally Getting My Chickens!

    Hi all! I’ve been begging my husband for chickens for 6 years and he finally relented! I bought a “Chick-Inn” coop and run at Rural King and it’s a bit smaller than I anticipated; it says it’ll house up to three chickens comfortably. I’ll likely extend the run using some scrap lumber and chicken...
