Beautiful mare and history, too.
Lovely ladies you swooped up!
Looks like they're checking out the new girls.
@Cyrus83 Your new birds look nice. What breeds did you end up getting? Unless my eyes deceive me, the new ones are not wyandottes, correct?
I gotta start selling some barnyard hatching eggs!! They r nice and fresh and I have had development in all but 1 of my 4 dozen I just set and have chicks hatching next week so u could see what the babies look like. Most of the eggs would be green and some brown. They r crossed with a Welsummer roo. I am looking to get $2.00- $2.50 a dozen. PM me if interested!
My Australian Shepherd Brox free ranges with my girls all the time. But my dog Meka (american eskimo mix), she is not allowed out with them, she cannot be trusted.
I haven't been able to check on this thread lately because of being busy with chores and school. (And as a result you guys left me 250+ posts )
Not to much is new with me. I cleaned out the coop yesterday and my dad weed whacked the run for me today. We are hopefully going to expand the run this week, my dad's planning on pushing some brush down with the bulldozer and then I'll drag it out with the four wheeler. The flock has been free ranging almost everyday because of the nice weather.
Not so much purebred as a type of chicken. They like the Minorcas, Welsummers, New Hampshires and those like them with the big single combs. A beefy chicken isn't quite as important as one that will give them good flavor for cooking up, I guess, or at least was told by one customer. They do use the Silkies too, which is funny to me since I can't feel much meat on those until they are at least a year old.
I have sold my birds to Asians and Indians ( Asian sub-continent not native Americans) they both like the skinny wiry roosters that are free ranged over the plump fat CX's (Bert's relatives). from the twin cities area.
They have all contacted me wanting more birds and saying how much they like the ones they got. A couple have told me they will take as many as I can raise. Of course, they always ask about Muscovy ducks too. I plan to save as many roosters as I can this year for them. Even the age does not matter, The woman that took nameless was extremely happy with him and he was 10 months old.
The nice thing about them as customers to me, is they do not care if the black pin feathers are there or not. It makes no difference. When I sell to those of us of European descent they whine and complain about the dark pin feathers.
FYI this was posted at our general store. Washington County fairgrounds. I think I'll go just to wander and see what they do with the event and who and what shows up if I can make it! @Minniechickmama maybe someone would take all those cockeral wellies that are hatching out!
