An Accidental Chicken Experiment

by @ Sunday, June 22nd, 2014. Filed under Chickens

It really hit me today the difference between my outside and inside layer chicks. Here are the outside chicks. The one on the cinderblocks is a columbian Wyandotte. And here are my indoor chicks. The one that’s still all fluff is also a columbian Wyandotte. They are all getting the same natural feed. The outside […]

Every Farm Needs A Brush Hog

by @ Sunday, June 15th, 2014. Filed under Cows

This is another of those convoluted stories that does, eventually, make a point. Several years ago now we made the leap and switched to milking just once a day.
