Just added these pictures, the original message is just under the pictures- This is my new buddy! His name is Mackie, after Vic Mackie. He is a German Sheppard. This is my homeboy-or girl 'Zazoo' Hello, long time lurker, first time poster. My name is Mike, I have 10 chickens, VERY new to this. They love yogurt and oatmeal the most! Any tips on raising chickens are appreciated and requested! This is made entirely of recycled material. I tore down an old barn when I bought the place, and turned it into several chicken coops, one of which is here- The three breeds of chicken in the coop are, Silkies- my show birds, hopefully a boy and a girl- now 8 weeks Mille Fluer D'Uccle- Pretty birds with feathers on their feet- now 8 weeks Naked Necks- these are my egg layers, also 8 weeks I've decided to be an organic farmer, and the chicken poop is perfect for my 'tomatoes.' I also plan to grow Japanese Maples, peppers, corn, etc... Also going to get a couple of goats, and I have 20 more silkies on standby for April. Also going to order 20 'meat' birds to lower my dependance on the outside world. I also got a nonsense job to pay for the chinese solar panels I'll be using to power my 'tomatoes' year round. I have some awesome pictures, but just found out I'm too new to post them.
