Ducks!!!

Yeah, that's right. Ducks. Really pretty ones too! They're a breed called muscovy and they're white, black, and brown. I got 6 3 month old muscovys and one 3 day old muscovy. Here's a video of them and several pictures after that. enjoy

 The rest of the pix are of the chicks from my latest hatch(most of which I'm selling). I let them out into the coop with all the big chickens and so-far no bloody combs or even a skwak session.

Chicks For Sale!!

Ok, guys big step.

I NOW HAVE CHICKS FOR SALE!!!!

MY FIRST (decent) HATCH EVER!!!!

I've tried to incubate lots but never seemed to have much success. Ever since I got my hovabator I've been hatching out chicks constantly. Here's a video of my first big hatch at one month and one week old. Enjoy!

Predators!!!

Well, it happened again. This spring I had a bunch of chickens die from impacted crops(i think) and now I had a bunch more die. This time though it wasn't a disease or anything like that. This time it was predators. One moment I had all of 'm and the next I was down to 12 or 13(+ feathers). The reason that they got my chickens was that I had forgotten to close the front door on he chicken coop and basically let them in. Even though they are just chickens(not really important) I still feel kinda bad cuz I was supposed to be taking care of them and I forgot about them and they died.

It's part of farming but it still sucks.

Here's the video...

Eggs

Used to be I'd have all chicken eggs. Now that I sold most of my big chickens and got quail and bantams the scales are starting to tip!

That long one pointing toward the chicken egg was a double yolk! I wonder if double yolked eggs would have trouble hatching. Hmmm...

Chicken Pix

Getting lots more quail eggs these days. I am planning on trying to get some lights up near their pen so that I can get eggs through winter too. As soon as this batch of eggs hatches I'm gonna incubate quail eggs.

Anyway, here's the pix(*drumroll*)...


I think I'll name this one MacGyver. That'll be MacGyver the 3rd.












Turkeys are invading the coop!!
 I really like the color of the chick in the next few pictures. I think he's macgyver/buff silkie.
