I traded the only turkey I had left and my two silkies for a couple other chickens. A Millie Fleur colored D’uccle and a nice Silkie Hen. The hen came with a couple chicks she’s been raising. A faverolle and orpington(they are a nice 6 days old today)
There has been some freak rain storms out here. Its claimed some of the last batch of chicks I got. I think ive had 6 die. The were the weakest in the batch. The rest are doing well and are feathering nice.
I decided that its now time that Jackson learns to fish. He liked the idea so we went and picked up a rod and some worms. Got to have the worms you know. He caught 2 in the first 1/2 hour we fished.
My goodness ive been busy with summer, hay, and the kiddos. I slaughtered my first round of chickens a few weeks ago. It went well and they turned out great. They were a little on the tough side but I didn’t let the meat rest after slaughtering. The gratification is great knowing I raised them and prepared them. Before. cooking, after….
