Scored some more Rhode Island reds.  Weird thing most of our Reds ladies are very old and laying had of course decreased accordingly but for some weird reason the old ladies inexplicably started picking it up out of nowhere the last month or 2 and producing eggs almost like they were in their prime.  It is like they knew we needed them.  {#Eek}

Wednesday, a member of PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, filed an application with GDOT to have a memorial placed at the Hall County site where a truck hauling live chickens overturned on Jan. 27.

The drivers of the chicken truck and the other vehicle involved were not seriously injured in the predawn crash on U. S. 129 near Gainesville
***********  I think Popeyes should offer 50% off to truck drivers every January 27th.

We have a snake problem.  They are eating all of our eggs.  Ideas we are tossing around, ceramic eggs or golf balls placed in their nesting buckets.  Anybody have any experience or other ideas of how to combat this?

Our Polish chickens have really turned out to be beautiful birds!  When the camera battery is charged I will take some pics to post.  The only thing is we had to get them straight run and wouldn't you know, we got eight of this variety and all 8 of em are roosters!{#Lol} They are really beautiful though.

Roosters are charlatans. I had a donkey named Marty that out-blasted everything in the neighborhood.  {#Tongue}

I sometimes hesitate to admit it, but I have some little experience raising house chickens. I never invited them in, just to be clear, but they had an affinity for the kitchen that opened onto the backyard and corral. Had me some Barred Rocks, Leghorns, Rhode Islands, and even some Araucanas. Anywho, we got a fair amount of double-yokers, but they weren't really much bigger than the regular ones, but the two yolks were smaller. That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it. I think. {#Cheesygrin}

 

Same thing here, my experience is the eggs were never that big regardless of yolks.  We have been raising all kinds of chickens, roosters, ducks, geese even had some guineas at one time (they are impossible to keep on your property) for over 10 years now.   We are expanding to rabbits and honey bees and possibly turkeys over the next couple of years.

Another pic of our red rooster and one of our black and tan Polish which are my favorite. Sorry for taking outside the pen, but their feeding time is still a couple of hours away so if I walk in there now I will be accosted!{#Lol}  And yes that is a dead red hen in the picture, per usual we suspect foul play and per usual the prime suspect is one of the geese.{#Rolleyes}

That is our next year project after we get all the greenhouses and fish farming under control. Bees are uber important for everything!
