Well bugger me, it worked. I got orders for chooks, and more egg customers. So it looks like I might be in business. Remember those pretty little yellow chooks I posted about a while ago. Well tomorrow I am placing an order for 40 more. I have orders for 24 dressed birds atm, and am expecting a few extras. Some will fill my freezer and some will be given away to friends (they might place an order for farm fresh chook)
This time I will be raising them in our Winter but it does not snow here so it should not be a major problem. A good sized shed with a concrete floor covered with wood shavings, should keep them warm. A tank with a watering system connected to have running water or more a slow drip system into their water troughs. 3 large plastic feeders to start off with. Although it will get too crowded as they get bigger.
But first they will go into a smaller pen for a week or two. A big thank you to Annie for all her great How to's, I am paying attention!
