Well we finally were able to find our forever home! 6 acres of pure joy! Not to sell all the work I have to do short but I have a great start! I will be updated the modern day “Bumstead” as I progress to show both my success and failure along the way. We are blessed with a decent size pond equipped with a 5 year old Koi fish and an existing coop “that was very nasty” that I am almost done cleaning if the weather and work would cooperate lol. The runs are big but not covered which is a concern of mine but I will tackle that as we go. Looking to make them Predator proof way before the chicks come out. Has anyone else raised all their birds together? Also we have a pen for goats coming to Bumville soon but for now we are focusing on the 6 chicks, two turks and Burt and Ernie our ducks. And of course a small garden to get started this season. So please enjoy and chime in through out this journey with us and I hope I (we) can learn and prosper along the way! I added a nesting box for better access. We had some visitors the other day!
