sorry, but this has been bothering me for a while...it's a coop....
these are chicken coupes
I still want an old world VW bug
you just can't get them these days
but hey I've owned 8 in the past
They float because of loss of fluid.
If eating them you want them to sink. Or half float means they are on the edge.
Don't eat a floating egg.
I was referring to incubating and doing an float test to see the egg wiggling.
It is a good way to make sure any eggs that didn't hatch are viable the day after. Any non developed eggs sink and bad ones usually float sideways and don't bob up and down. Dead ones don't wiggle.
I seen someone locally was asking for a small camper for free or really cheap I'll see if I can find the picture she used.
I was just saying for eating.
I had two planted rows of fir that run about 50' that someone planted about twenty or thirty years ago and decided to make a coop for my turkey and meat birds by hollowing it out to give them sun and rain protection. I cut off all the lower growth and tacked up steel wire and it protects from rain for the most part unless its really heavy. Not much for shelter but I don't use this coop/run in the winter or for my pickier egg layers.
Does anyone keep geese as a security thing ..?
The BIL's chickens will make a fuss if they don't know you.
Guinea fowl are great for security. They squak at everything.
Sometimes they squawk at nothing.
I use a homemade viewer to see if the eggs have chicks. Simply to make with a light and a shoebox. My chickens are still broody atm.
They’re some mean fuckers I have one. He’s worse than a pit bull.
Lol. Yea. They can be annoying at times.
They do love to eat ticks. When we had guinea fowl we had very few ticks.
Sister and BIL kept some for several years. They loved getting on top of the house, and would make a terrible racket. They liked to sleep in the trees, and over the years the varmints ate most of them, and they sold the last few when they got rid of the peacocks.
there's a back road here called "boogertown road"...no shit.....here's a map..
they call it that because it's dark as fuck, and a lot of people used to keep guinea fowl. you'd be walking down the road in the dark and a whole tree full of guineas would start squawking and scare the shit out of you, sound like every booger in the holler was coming after you
(i used to live on treebeard way)
Chickens + coupe
I raise Marans and Easter eggers so viewing makes it difficult because the color. The Chocolate and blue eggs are near impossible even with the brightest light. I do have a few white layers now and it certainly makes it easier.
Goddamn it, I am too slow by half. Glad you were the one who beat me, lol.
