    Loved the rain we got this week! Planted some peas in some buckets last Monday. I need to process some more chickens so that I can take back the garden area and get the rest of my buckets ready. I also need to get some some seeds started indoors. Ack, and I need to prune my grapes, almonds, pomegranates, chaste tree, bird of paradise and honeysuckle vine. I promised myself to stay on top of these things this year. Here's a question...when do you dust for mites and de-worm your chickens? I'm getting around 8 eggs daily now and need to get this done before they all start laying.

    Hi There. I'm from Tonopah, NV. Approx. 1/2 way between Vegas and Reno. We're looking to add a few started pullets to our flock of 17 and would rather get them "local" than have them fly in on a plane. Can anyone direct me to where I might get these in Nevada? Thanks!
