    As I understand it, if a drake mounts and breeds a hen, he can drag out her reproductive organs with his penis. Rooster and hens "kiss vents" with no damage. Look up pictures of duck penis and you will see what I mean. Many people keep ducks and chickens together with no problems. For the short...

    I gave my silkies away. I just didn't gee-haw with them. That rooster got mean and I don't like mean roosters, no matter how cute.

    What do you do to cut expenses down?

    I buy all my jeans at Vanity Fair Outlet, seldom pay over $6-$10 for jeans. There is one about an hour from us, I am on the preferred customer list and will get texts of 10% to 20% off sales on certain days. That is usually when we go. We buy shirts, jeans, underwear, socks, all for cheap. I...

    Pictures of your quail please? I’ve thought about quail but don’t need to add more species. We’ll pick up 50 CCX chicks March 2 and start that process.

    I have 14 Easter Egger pullets to start the year with, but I am ready for a new breed. I just don't know which breed. If I could make my own chicken, it would have the color of a Jubilee Orpington, the meat of a CCX and the egg laying ability of a red sex link. I want a trio of Jubilee...

    Ok, This virus is making the rounds, so what can we do to protect ourselves? I have read that if your selenium levels are low, your immunity is compromised and you are susceptible to viral infections. But I can't fine that magic number where you have enough or too much. So why put out teaser...

    Baymule’s 2020 Feeder Pigs

    I let him next to their fence with us yesterday while we fenced off the area around the "window" we feed them through. The horses fiddled with the top of the bin feeder until they got it open and helped themselves. While we put up a wire gap and wire at the other end to block the horses off...

    The pigs now have names. The white one is Elsa, the black and white one is Carrot. These names are Mom approved. I gave them some kitchen scraps today, they tore up a leftover pancake, broccoli trimmings, carrot trimmings and egg shells.
