    I got 4 eggs from 4 turkey hens today in my redneck nest box....



    I got 29 eggs from my 30 hens today. I have one broody hen that is a pain in the rear, she takes up a nest box and gives me nothing. She keeps moving to a new nest when she gets up to eat and "hers" is taken ( well, once a day). I moved her to the "ICU" and gave her a nest in there with 10 eggs. She will either take them or she will break her broodiness either outcome is ok with me.... (with fingers crossed she takes the eggs....)

    I have not checked the Creamettes for eggs yet, but I am doing 100% when deducting for the broody one on eggs so far.....I should be an egg production specialist....

    I thought you were already?? [​IMG]Isn't "egg production specialist" just another name for the "professional chicken rancher" that you are? Or maybe they are two very different things, maybe you could explain the difference to me??

    (This must be my "learn one thing new today".)

    Duluthralphie - I don't post in here much but couldn't help but notice that your profile says you are from Orrock - I grew up there! Which might not seem significant to anyone else unless you know how small Orrock is lol. (Or was, IDK maybe it's bigger now, but in the 80's, early 90's there was like, 29 people.) Lived in the 100+ year old Victorian- the 2nd house down on 261st until I was 11. I've often wondered if it's still standing. Thought about taking a drive through there many times, but I think I was afraid I'd see it torn down.

    Well.I live on 261st. which was known as county road 4 when I grew up.....which was way before you.....

    I am thinking the house you are talking about is gone. I know when I moved back and saw the old Orrock store was gone and the "old: gas station was gone it was a sad day....

    How are we related again? Everyone in Orrock twp was back then...

    As a professional Chicken rancher I spent my day riding my donkeys and herding the chickens rounding up stays and so forth.... As an egg production specialist I spend my days giving my chickens motivational speeches and finding ways for them to work harder for less pay.

    Thanks for that. I had a stupid weekend, so it is nice to read your accounts of you life in a small Minnesota town with chickens as your besties ;)
