THIS HOMESTEAD IS FOR THE BIRDS

in homesteading •  14 days ago

There sure are a lot of ups and downs around here.


Besides just moving, plenty of changes have been happening around here. With quail, ducks, chickens, & Guinea fowl, we've got plenty of birds around here. Most of the ducks and our chickens are already moved down to the land.

Recently, we've lost some Guineas and chickens, but it looks like more Guineas may be hatching soon, and we also purchased some Orpington chicks.

This breed is a great sitter and mother, so we are hoping to grow them throughout the winter and have them help us hatch more come springtime. For more, check out my vlog below.

Hard work

Hard work builds character. Also if you work hard you don't have time to get into trouble! Life on the homestead can be tough especially when you lose animals...We have learned the hard way to predator-proof the homestead, whether against four-legged, two-legged or winged.

Awwwww .... so cute

Your hard work always gives satisfying results.
Good luck always my friend.

hey @papa-pepper That was sad to hear about your losses to the fox. Your new babies look super healthy and happy. monster truck looked so happy and cute holding that chick there! I think you should build a hot tub in the garden there.. you look like you could do with a good long relax! 🦋🌈💛🍀

Heard some really good things about you from @freedompoint and @freedomtowrite this week. Keep up your great work!

Cool! Nice to meet you!

I like birds, especially quail since I created this animal and also chickens, with patience you will be able to breed them. Good luck and congratulations!

it might be worth looking at getting swans and geese to protect the rest. there is not a lot that can tangle with a full grown swan and come out of it not messed up. They are super aggressive to anyone invading their territory as well.

I've seen them chase of a German Shepard just for the fun of it.

I hope next week is better for you.

Thanks for the advice! We could look into that moving forward.

I love it! Proof of Bird!

God bless your hard work

upvote for chickens and other fetheranimals.....yes....

Very nice. I'm really super happy with chickens. If I knew I would love them this much, I would have had chickens years ago. Super fulfilling and enriching.

Good work my friend.
