Sorry, I am late to the party. I will be hatching this year.
My hatch is officially over. All 17 eggs hatched and now I have 17 beautiful, new BCM babies!
one of these does not belong. One of the poults dove right in and got comfy as I was putting them back in the brooder lol
WOW! That looks huge. I really like the runs. How do you do your watering system in the desert? That's too many pens to haul water 1 gallon at a time!
Good Nate! Better than yesterday. I'm so sorry to hear about your chickie.
I had to put down one of my sweet old ewes yesterday. Losing a pet/livestock sucks. In your case it didn't have to be so...and that's much worse.
I grew up with pigs, I had pigs (people still think I have pigs now and that was years ago...hilarious!!), my uncle still has pigs and I worked in a pig barn for many years. I TOTALLY get the fence thing. I get my bagged straw (allergies...yes it's funny) from people who have pigs. First time there, I saw a HUGE boar in a one strand electric fence. Couldn't believe it! They train their pigs for the electric fence in an area that has a metal sheeting just beyond the electric wire. They touch the electric wire, try to go through the electric wire and touch the electric sheeting. Pigs never try the electric fence again. Pretty genius I thought, but the pig thing...that ship has sailed for me.
But for you, food for thought...if it saves your chickies.
Hoping to order some Red Golden Pheasant eggs to hatch just hope they are here for the easter hatch along
Nice paddocks# Happy chicks.
We have auto water nipples off a water tank. But in the cold, Yes I have to hand haul to each of the 14 paddocks
