Going great, may the hatch be with you.
Glad that you made it home & have some eggs to set for a hatch. Those wheels sure turn slow on the adoption, then the long wait for the passports. Have a Happy Thanksgiving & hope all your projects work out good.
The drive home yesterday was spectacularly easy. The roads were empty. Then we worked out why. Manny Paquio had the whole country in front of a TV.
The eggs were set. We lost just a few in transit. I inspected the pigs, met motza and feta.
This morning we built the base of the farrowing stand prototype. Tomorrow we will get the top done one we vaccinate the pigs and apply invermectin to the goats and water bufallo.
Our first full day went really well.
don't forget the pictures OZ
got my 1st egg from my english orpingtons in moths today
maybe i'll have eggs to send for your next trip after all .....?
but i know for sure that i have to thin out my buff orpingtons (ready the ax)
i have better than 20 & the coop is getting small
All my coops are getting small down here in NC as well. I have used the hand-Axe a bit this fall. I need to get it busy again, feed is costly!
i am making room for younger birds
all but 1 of the older hens will head off to camp
The welding is going well. We just stopped for lunch. We should get 2 pens done this week and finish the third at Christmas.
We had some more eggs due today. They were the last of the Yolanda effected eggs. Only 3 out of the last batch of 24 made it but we did lose power for 72 hours.
Every 4 legged animal got tetanus vaccination today. That was fun.
Hello Oz, your story inspired me, I am on an island in the Bahamas with only local chickens, I had the same dream like you of a Rhode Island Red rooster walking in my yard. I ordered heritage RIRS from ebay, they shipped all the way from Tennessee. They all arrived safely and with no detached aircells. I wish I could have brought them in myself like you did but hey. They are in the incubator now. Anyway just wanted to tell you that. Carry on. Oh and awesome story and awesome coop made of local stuff.
Welcome to the thread Bahamabanty. We did a weeks diving in Stuarts Cove on Nassau. I love the laid back culture of the islands.
Good luck with your hatch!
Its 6am and the free rangers are outside my bedroom window. I am late to get up. More welding today. The prototype pen will be completed. We will sell copra tomorrow and check out a Nubian buck.
