Excitement


We had our excitement today, I was in the pen catching the small chicks and ducks that haven't learned to go night night on their own when they ran in the corner and there was a 2ft copperhead striking at the ducks, don't know if any got bit or not. I hollered, (cause I live in the south) at philip to grab a gun and he and andrew came running. First one we've seen up here on the ridge since we've lived here. Caught another coon 3 days ago too. Everything be wanting some chicken!!!!

Finally

Finally got some quail eggs to hatch. Got 12 cortinux(japanese quail) and their doing fine so far. I also have gotten 5 black cochin chicks and 3 more ducks, a peking male to go with the female we already have and a pair of blue swede ducklings to replace the one we lost. Also got 2 easter egg chick pullets. We have been pretty busy keeping the varmits out of our pens, so for we're up to 4 coons and 3 possumsin our traps we set. we also made a small pen to let our birds eat the grass, they are having a great time. Going to give obamma and a couple of roosters to our friend at the feed store, obamma stays broody all the time but gives up before the chicks hatch. We use halbreed for setting eggs and she's a great mother too!!! Halbreed hatched another chick that looks just like her.
