    tell your hens to get busy the week before I go in may. I will take any and all of your pures

    when I was in the Phils an americauana mix young roo and a polish mix young roo had a little display of courage. it was cute but it wont be long before I have to thin the boys out. My father in law wants some, as does my wifes brother in law. No one want us to eat them. The immigrants are getting big. We started free choice oyster shell. I will worm them again in a week and expect eggs to start appearing in a six weeks. I am so looking forward to eating our own eggs when I get there in may/june.

    Mrs Oz delayed her trip over for a few weeks but she is excited to visit your hacienda

    I am very excited about the turkeys. I can wait to turn the old tom I have into turkey sausages or slow cooked mole poblano. A home grown tom turkey at christmas too.yum.

    this is too much fun.

    will you be going to Norco tomorrow?

    i look forward to seeing how the younguns are growing too. post pics please

    Despite the persistence of high poverty in the country, at least four in every five adult Filipinos, or 81 percent, said they were satisfied with their life in December last year, a survey found.

    Results of survey showed that those content with their life included 33 percent who said they were “very satisfied” and 48 percent who were “fairly satisfied.”
    The survey, conducted on Dec. 8 to 11, asked 1,200 adults nationwide the question, “On the whole, are you very satisfied, fairly satisfied, not very satisfied, or not at all satisfied with the life you are experiencing?”

    1/2 for Bernie's pocket & 1/2 for more feed
    maybe you will end paying little or nothing for feed
