As if there wasn't enough going on this year, it's been a doozy for predation for us.

(I would like to take a moment to say that in regards to everything else 2020 has going on, I have a lot to say, but I don't have a good way to say it. I'll talk about any topic person...

That wasn't very nice. Not THAT moving day. Today was a "move some baby birds outside day". Hooray!

I got a hold of some stuff recently, and had a chance to repurpose a few things to make a safer environment for some birdies.

Sorry we haven't had a ton of interesting stuff to say lately... We're just exhausted right now. We've been on the farm for over 9 years now, and what a difference it has made on our knees and backs!

This is the time of year when the county fairs are ending. All of thes...

OK, there are a variety of chicken breeds out there, and I am not going to go into detail on specific breeds and characteristics of different breeds. But, we do put "types" on the different birds we sell, so I wanted to give a little lesson on what it means to the meat...
