    2018 first chicks

    I put 6 Blueface Brood hens and 2 Murphy in cock house over a month ago. I thought they would all set. Only one did. I heard chicks today Blueface. I put 96 eggs in 2 incubators. Iíll get a count tomorrow on the chicks.

    I've got about 90 free ranging (protected by excellent bulldog) plus 5 more pens laying, murphys, mugs, and mug greys. Done killed 2 stray dogs n 2 fox, only lost a handful to them. Looks like a good yr for being able to cull hard and still have enuf gooduns.

    I like hen raised the best but I lose more than I raise with hens the hens like to drag them around threw the dew in the mornings and hawks like them hear so I've had to go to using incubators just to get enough for my own use.
