It’s 1st Saturday, time to clean those chicken coops! 🧹🐓 #firstsaturdaylime
I had a vision and a way was made! Our family homestead is receiving the love and positive energy it deserves! It was truly a spiritual journey walking through that sacred land over the weekend🙏🏾
It’s the first of the month, had to get the girls a little treat, a supplement block 🐓
I’m preparing the brooder for the new arrival of my baby chicks. I know I can’t replace the 3 Pullets that were killed because they were my 1st babies, that why I decided to order a different breed, stay tuned!
Sadly I’m here to report that early this morning my chicken coop was raided by an unknown and unwanted predator. Unfortunately I lost 3 hens, 1 Rhode Island Red and Barred Rock from the 1st flock and a Barred Rock from the 2nd flock. To say I’m devastated is an understatement. All indications is that the predator was a raccoon, hopefully we can catch him before he come back to cause more damage, I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
Had to put down some fresh wheat straw down for the girls, their run was muddy from all of the rain we’ve had the last few days.
On Monday one of my hens was making noises like she was laying an egg, I kept checking the coop all day, no egg. Throughout the week I made sure they had plenty food and water, so I played the waiting game. So today (Saturday) I scheduled the task of cleaning their coop out and adding fresh bedding and to my surprise I found five eggs! To say I’m excited is a understatement, I am so proud of my girls, here is a pic of the five beautiful eggs. Thank you guys for riding along on this journey with me, I am forever grateful.
We have success, the older and younger flock have a positive flow inside of the chicken run..
The older flock was dominating the young ones, I was getting a little worried, they seemed to have the pecking order implemented on day #3.
