I spotted a young opossum in my run last night! I shouted at him. So I’ve got a hole that’s big enough to be a problem for them getting in the run.Hey everyone! Camping is winding down, other life events settled down for us, and will be back on here as a regular very soon!
I try to mention every early spring, and fall is a very good time to check your coop security. Fix a loose board or piece of fence, that type thing. In fall the wildlife are working on loading up on food for the winter, especially species that hibernate. Youngsters are cut loose from the parents by now and get bold! I've come out at dusk last few days and seen young raccoon and possum around my coops.
I might host a processing workshop for poultry and waterfowl early November, weather permitting. I've not offered any this year due to Covid, but With face masks and being outdoors it will work for a small group. I do not charge for this, so if you'd like to learn I'd be glad to share. Its also time for my fall Rooster/Drake roundup, time to clean up and downsize my chicken and duck flocks. I will have roosters and drakes if you need a bird, I do ask a donation for them. You can also BYOB of course free.. (Bring your own bird!)
Love the idea of a workshop! I’ve processed one roo, but I’d be happy to get some more hands on experience as well as exchange other poultry knowledge.
