We have only had chickens for a little more than a month now. We had talked about it for the last couple of years, but didn't actually DO anything about it until our neighbors recently told us they were moving and offered to give us some chickens. Since then, DH and DS built the chicken tractor, added the BR roo and six BR hens, we ordered the classroom incubator pack from Brinsea, have 15 eggs in the bator due on Wednesday (BR, BCM, and SFH), we're looking at buying some electric poultry fencing to make a larger pasture for free-ranging, and are planning to build (but have not yet started) a bigger chicken coop. All is going great with the chicken math, right?. Well yesterday our wonderful neighbors blessed with another gift - a 16-month-old Dexter heifer!!! It is a wonderful gift for which we are very thankful, but of course, you cannot own just ONE cow, so now we are going to have find another miniature cow to keep it company, and build a barn where it can be milked, and fence off a pasture for it, and.... and... and.... DH spent the morning putting in t-posts and cattle panels only to discover that we really need more cattle panels to give her shade in the trees, but SS was already closed. So we took the dog kennel panels away from our chickens run (temporarily) and added the others we had sitting around to make a temporary corral for Sophie, until the temporary pasture is fenced off with the cattle panels, until the large majority of our clear acreage can be fenced off with electric fencing. How come nobody told us about FARM MATH when we moved here!?!?!
