Definetly not cause I want more!! No I would need more geese to keep up with orders!
This does little to convince me someone wanting more than 4 geese is not crazy....
Does anybody have a roller mill or grain mill they want to get rid of, or know somebody that does?
Ralph Heidi has like ten Geese unless she sold them.
And I have like 10 cream legbars, which shows perfectly normal people can do stupid crazy things.......
We actually are talking about them right now.
I just called the state board of animal heath to find out about the NPIP testing class.
She said they have not set a date yet. but are looking at 2 classes this year, one in St Cloud and one in Mankato. (those are subject to change) I lobbied for St Cloud.
Good morning! All is well in Big Lake. I shoveled the walks and steps, fed the wild birds, collected my one morning egg. Had a talk with my neighbor last night. I love my neighbors and therefore consider myself very fortunate. He wants to do meat birds this year. I have the opportunity to do some also if I would like to. And I would like to go through the process - once. Anyways - he and I were talking and HE was saying how I have the perfect place to raise chickens if I were to build a coop/run just behind our pole shed. Hmmmmm. So far this endeavor has not paid for itself but then I never expected that it would.
Two BA and two creamettes that are hens to add to the flock this spring. Unless they are $6 a chick - LOL. But that is what I think I need to add to keep this going.
Let me know Ralphie when you want to do that. Anytime in March. Gotta take a trip the beginning of May and I want them out in the run by that time.
What are you thinking for meat birds? Confined? Tractors? Pastured? Free range?
If you need some advice on tractors I would be happy to share
The neighbor has it all planned for the meat birds - not me. He has done it many, many times - just not since they moved into this house. I know that he has a tractor built FOR ME so that the Eagles will not claim my hens this year. It just needs wheels and for the snow to disappear. I would like to have enough hens to give them eggs and have them do the meat birds for me. I think I would start with ten to twelve meat birds this year (in case any expire) just to see if the DH notices a difference and what it is like processing them. Plus the freezer space I have. If we like them and the process then we need to invest in a small freezer. My last one went ka-poot a couple of years ago.
I do have a grain mill and it is wonderful. I use it often so not willing to let it go though. Sorry KlopKlop. Not too helpful.
