Hey Oz...baby pekins hopefully soon...just wanted to share cuz this will be you! out of 6 eggs - 4 viable. this is egg #3 I think, anyway just had to share.
Found today and just finished this thread and so excited for your journey!
We have an asian daughter that we adopted over 21 years ago...she's a keeper!
Our oldest daughter lived in the Philippines for six weeks working with a kids missionary program. She loved it there!
Yes they have tap roots.
Decomposition is very rapid. The humidity and heat all year around provide an perfect environment. We get all sorts of bugs, termites and worms that assist. Any land that is not taken care of will rapidly return to jungle.
Fish farming provides a decent part of the agriculture on our island. I do not have the land for it. I would need 30 acres with an adjacent tidal stream.
Great thoughts - keep asking questions!
Do you know where in the Philippines she was housed? We get a few missionaries in our area. Lots a people come for medical missions. We also have a strong baptist stronghold in a very catholic country. We even get the short sleeved, white shirted, guys from Utah making the rounds. Its great that both faith based and NGO groups are willing to donate their resources.
LOL I love Ted Talks!
Oz - your coop (and your chicks) are looking fantastic! The chicks have a nice bit of room to spread out and play there, don't they? And the little chick roosts are wonderful! I'd love to have some just like that... but alas - I don't have a gardener or cheap labor... ... ... or the talent and know-how to do that myself - LOL!
I'll just live vicariously through your adventures, and perhaps some day I'll save up enough to come be a guest and stay in your coop.
Oh - and the rice hulls look like they'll be just perfect!
This was not meant to sound boastful. It was meant to read that though they are my ideas, I cannot take credit for how great it is looking. Bernie is awesome and takes pride in his work. He is very much appreciated.
If I did it all myself 1. it would take forever to get done 2. when it did - it would look shabby 3 I am not there to maintain it 4. as we employ Bernie and Analou and give them a more than standard, living wage, we are helping them and their whole family.
I am blessed with having the opportunity to live this adventure.
We need more good peeps like you in the world. I find it amazing how one persons thoughts and desires to have chickens can drive ones self to achive so much to affect others. What you are working on is truely amazing, 'Oz . You rock bud
