    I haven't had a reason to process my own chickens yet. Not meaties, either. I didn't eat the lemons, but I ate the parsley/cilantro. The lemons worked great! Very moist and tender.


    BOSS is good, but also usually expensive.

    The peep is out! :weee A sweet little blonde SS. :love.

    They hatch much faster when my nose isn't glued to that bator glass. Looks like this mama isn't going to be a chick-stomping hussy like the last sussex. That was horrible.

    I didn't look that long. I didn't hear peeping so I was just making sure there was a chick in there. This broody is the angriest I've ever had, and the most dedicated. She never ate and I only filled the waterer once. Even when I took her off the nest she went straight back without eating.

    Mutt Farm Chillin' With My Peeps

    Thanks granny. Backstory: My Pops, 83, gave his farm to his son and moved in here, his RV, "man cave". I swear, if it came from an egg, he's hatched it! Emus, pea foul, rheas finches on and on.Anything I know about chickens, I learned from him. He doesn't have a lot of years left to be proud and enjoy what he's done all his life. I'd love to let him enjoy hatching here, but I'll need to learn a bit to help behind the scene. One hobby breed for him to enjoy. Anything to keep him proud and feeling useful. Sorry for babbling. I love him like a love never imagined. I dread the day he leaves me. I'm addled way worse than him for sure. Here's a pic of my pops, 83 years young.
