good looking bunch you have there OZ

here are you kids pig
Bah, If it is not one thing it is another. I have faith you will succeed at this venture. Just means The story I have grown to enjoy will last a tad longer. Sorry for your losses bud.
the eggs were wiped out in breeds so it tells me it was a supply chain issue rather than me.
we will get there.
by christmas it will be one year and we should just about be done with chicken.
next spring I will then concentrate on turkey and geese
Great photos! How are the rice hulls working out in the coop?
Not Oz here but I use them in my coop and in my horse corral..... I love them so do the birds. AND the horse. Oh and I am in San Diego. They do not compact are naturally water repellent so the air circulates through them to dry any wet mess up.
My VERY FIRST BYC post is yours OZ. I've been lurking for months and I just read this WHOLE thread. I started last nite and it has taken me well over 10 hours. I haven't gotten anything done today so time to get up and do something. As a note I DON'T EVEN HAVE 1 CHICKEN! I have never had a chicken in my life. I am researching and checking to see if chickens are right for me. I live in suburbia and can have up to 10 hens. Of course they will be pets (If I decide) and we'll enjoy the eggs but not allowed to process them here and most likely couldn't do it myself anyway, I'm like that.
Just wanted to say I've enjoyed the thread and will keep watching. Not sure how to subscribe to threads but perhaps someone can let me know. Your home is lovely and your kids even better! Thanks for taking me on this crazy trip. I got hooked not believing someone could take eggs that far on a plane in baggage and then have them not break. I'm a believer now!
So hello from Eastern North Carolina!
Rice hulls are awesome. Deb sums the up well.
And for me they are freeeeeee!
Thanks for stepping out of the darkness.
If you have spent this much time researching chickens, it seems like a good time to start seeing how they get along with you.
