    Very nice. You might consider lining the cyclone fencing with something a bit smaller. Predators will get the chickens all freaked out then they'll grab'em when they run by. I'd also close off those gaps with some small-hole wire as well. Looks like it'll serve you for many years.

    Country acres is made by Nutrina.

    If your feed store does not carry the Country Acres Mix for meet birds and will not order it for you....Marsolan's in Covington does. 985-892-1433

    Also O'Keef's sells the Broiler feed that I use and they also stock and sell the Flock Raiser in crumbles and in pellets. They are in Covington as well.

    Thanks, have the smaller hole wire on hand just need to tack it infront of the chainlink. The gaps have the wire covering them, just can't see it in the picture.

    Thanks, we are a military family, I"m a retired vet with 25 yrs in and my son is also a vet with 11 yrs in so far. So it seems appropriate to call it a Camp :)

    YES Julie it's the BEST! The smoky flavor really makes a gumbo "zing"! You need to try it!

    We have two smokers - a metal one for meat & a "cold smoker" made of wood that Jim built for his homemade sausages & fish & cheeses, things like that.

    I'd raise some Muscovies if I had somebody else to process them - I just wouldn't have the heart to do it myself. I can chop off a mean roo's head w/no problem but ducks are too pretty and cute.
