When is the next trip home?
I am doing my egg runs on Monday Aug 26 and Tuesday 27 - Fly out Wed Aug 28
I will be at my chicken ranch on Friday afternoon in time for my son's Second Birthday Party.
Sat morning we set eggs. Then its time to sort chickens.
I am going to move all the adult chooks into the new coops and use the other side of the big duplex coop as a grow out.
I am vaccinating for fowl pox and Newcastle Disease while I am there. We cannot eat eggs for 3 weeks after that so the young chickens will get lots of hard boiled protein.
I was supposed to leave the island Monday and fly back from Manila Tuesday but the flight will be $450 more than on the following day so I am staying an extra day
Have fun and an early Happy Birthday to your son.
I wish I had some eggs to send to you, but no roos here, and I don't think you need anymore eating eggs
I also have no pures to send this trip I had to let everyone loose in the two big pens to make it easier for the caretakers while I was on vacation..... in the process of assessing and organizing..
I have eggs.I am doing a run down there on the Monday though - so be on the lookout for the Green Machine
8 hatched from the 12
I think we have around 30 local-egg-laid chicks in the brooder.

Mrs Oz picked up 100yds of 8ft wide polyprop netting today for $65. I will use it to make a nice area for the girls to get out and semi-free range and help keep the feed bill down.
Free range is taking over
almost 7 million dozen eggs were sold in Great Britain in Q2 of 2013. 47% were free range.
recently i had talked to one of my customers that was from the phill and had a long conversation about your post. thanks for the updates. im sure your ears have been ringing cause you have been talked about over here quite a bit. hope all is well peace and harmony to your coop
I am sure your customer thinks I am as crazy as all the Filipina nurses I work with.
I have sales reps who want me to have dinner with their regional managers to amuse them.
Oh well, atleast I dont have conversations with my self.............. aloud anyway
