Re: ****Winter**** Chicken Moma chat thread. Join in the chat!

Yea, he does the plans and I make changes to make things easier for me to manage. Also facts like what sizethe boxes should be, boards to prevent savings falling out, ect. We kinda work together. The errr part is he keeps it all in his head and it's hart to say yay or nay. Lol. Finished 2 more coats of paint today, some spots 4 and also the roofing.

Denise, I can just picture how cute look sweetie!!!!

Here's the roo fathering the barthuner babies. His name is Plug-Plugged Nickle and the Moma is Pretty Penny, as in: he ain't worth a plugged nickel without the pretty penny.

Re: ****Winter**** Chicken Moma chat thread. Join in the chat!

i can't believe i stumbled upon this thread. we have 30 hens...all different kinds...and no roos. We can't have any roosters cause of the ordinances in our county. we aren't technically supposed to have any chix, but our code enforcement guy gave me a break since i'm only 1/10 of an acre from being OK. our chix are doing pretty much OK. we live in GA, so the winter isn't too bad on them. They aren't laying as much as I'd like right now, but it's still cold, and I do have some pullets that may not be laying yet.

we did accidentally end up w/a rooster in our last batch of babies. too bad for the roo, he ended up in the cook pot. it was a homeschool lesson for the day LOL.

Welcome! I was just talking today about how much the chickens can teach in hs. Econimics, phsyiology, animal care, science, just keeps going. We're doing tons of match and measurements with building. The bator was fun, but we're gonna do another.

So glad to have you!

Re: ****Winter**** Chicken Moma chat thread. Join in the chat!

Thanks everyone! We had to sell the 4-wheeler to pay for boards, though. I think we have around 80 pressure treated 2X4's in it already. Not even starting the runs yet. Ray refuses to make anything the cheaper route. Makes it impossible to get things done. He is a blessing though. I hit the jackpot. The man can do/fix/build anything on his own. Just a perfectionist, lol. I do love the man. I'm sure you all understand the feeling, all ya'll have manly men hubbys

I only manages 18, how many did Liz fit in there, hahaha?????

Yes Brady is the same way! Usually drags his feet a little to my crazy ideas, then by the end he's the one who really ended up being the motivator behind it
