I had the chance at 7 month old hens this week hatched from my own chickens I gave to My buddy when I moved....the wife said it's not the same and wanted to start over.... you know how it goes. It's times like these that makes it easier for her to look the other way when I drag stupid shit home lol
Wayment...you mean shit like this?

Well I’m about done w raising quail, have about 10 left. Just hatched out some chickens, we set 24 eggs and got 15 Dee dees. Probably half will be roosters and will get processed around 4 months old. Will keep one or two roosters so I won’t have to get fertilize eggs.

Kids in TN are homesteading and want to raise meat chickens. Apparently a 'Chicken Tractor' is the tool needed to keep'em safe and secure.

Last couple trips thru I built it ground up. Made so food and water can be loaded from outside and it can be moved by the DIL very easily with the four tires (one can be chocked).

Chicken tractor is the only way to roll for meat birds. Best part is it can be as simple or as elaborate as you want to make it. Good stuff.
