Join us birdbrains MHF and get your chickens!! IF nothing else you'll have plenty of eggs! Going to try a winter garden this year, maybe even try more squash and zucs. We were going to sow some major feed plots on the bottom 60 but I fear it'll be a lost cause. Now I know why so many fawns were abandoned this year, I know several people who are raising them. Little Deer is doing well, but if we get hungry.... JUST KIDDING!
Yikes on the ground, that is bad. Haven't dug anything up here to see and don't think I want to.
We get eggs now from "the girls" that my daughter claims ownership of, she shares them with grandma. I used to have an insane fear of chickens (stupid I know) when I was little we had corgis, one of them snuck in the coop behind me and herded all of the meat birds mom was raising out over my head. My mom still laughs about watching me run out of the barn swarmed in a flock of chickens being chased by a little stumpy legged dog. They don't bother me much now, I'd like them to eat and them to eat the bugs, with the ticks this year I briefly considered a few guineas but quickly opted not. Too darn noisy. I don't know if I could eat Little Deer but my hubby will hopefully fill a couple tags come deer season
The one silver lining in my yard, with the weather that everything else is despising my hibiscus is loaded with blooms. First ones have started to open IMAG0619.jpg
