    Some great shots.

    Looks like you have more land than I imagined, and it's all being put to good use without looking like a industrial area.

    thanks

    The out buildings are all well spread out. The front 30% will be reserved for the fruit tree orchard. its 30% house yard and 40% is for spaced coops, piggery and goat houses.

    I am trying to use as much local material on the exteriors. I dont want an industrial park at all.

    the new 4x4 breeder coops will have woven mat walls over 1/4th marine ply

    Truly beautiful pics Oz! I was just imagining what it must sound like...picturing kids (human) running and playing, roosters crowing, hens singing, adolescent roosters crackling, goats maaaing and pigs squealing! Lots of good life sounds at the beach [​IMG]

    New Motza pics. She was given Ivermectin pour on 3 weeks ago to de-worm and delice. She is a much happier water buffalo. It looks like she has filled out more too

    Thinking about your local turkeys, What ever happened with the Tom that would dive bomb you from a roost?
    Motza is looking much better!
