It's hard to believe another year is passing. As the popular old saying goes, “There’s always next year.” Flock management, forage, infrastructure? Identifying areas in need of improvement is always a must in most areas of life. And the same goes when it comes to your backyard flock. As 2020 bids us goodbye, what are your plans for 2021 when it comes to your beloved backyard flock?

I’m hoping to hatch out my own ducks and build a brand new coop and run :D

I love this poll!

I plan to do a lot of hatching and buying chicks. I would like to buy around 40 day-old chicks and sell them at the age of 6 weeks. I plan on getting turkeys and several new breeds of chickens! :celebrate

I'll let my pair of pigeons breed if they wish, and maybe get Homers.

I'll fix up that old coop my neighbor gave me, and maybe sneak in a few more coops 🤫

I am going to start a Black Soldier Fly farm for the chickens and growing fodder (though I'll probably start this before the end of the year). My goal is to cover all feed costs and get profit just by hatching and raising poultry.

Yep, it'll be a busy and fun year :wee

I'm still planning on getting 6 more chickens next spring but winter always gets me so depressed and now I'm doubting myself. I started work on a coop and lost motivation completely...it's only when I come on here that I feel a spark of interest again 🤦‍♀️ My main problem is that I would like to get bantams but I'm pretty sure my other customers wouldn't buy the eggs...so I'd have a freeloading flock and I'm not sure I have finances to do that.

My coop definitely needs a new roof so I'd like to hopefully pull that off next year but I think I would also like to try to reduce my flock size. I don't know if that will actually happen but with me working throughout the summer months and trying to keep up with my Etsy shop, my family often has to care for my flock for me. I know my husband isn't thrilled with that as it is so smaller flock size, less work for them to do. But only the chicken flock. My turkey flock seems to grow every year no matter what I do lol
