That's our granddaughter feeding the various critters, and that's my wife with a 4 month old Jersey Giant rooster. The big steers aregoing to be fresh meet in December. The little ones are about 2 years away.

Fresh egg are delicious. Duck eggs are to die for. W haven't bought eggs in two years...

There is enough there to keep you busy for sure. I haven't had fresh eggs in years and never had duck eggs. Fresh beef now that sounds great especially steaks and ground beef.

The wife brought home 10 more hens, and a rooster. That makes 4 roosters, and 33 hens. I have an idea for her to have brooders for each of roos and a hen or two. Jersey Giant and Leghorn, for raising chickens for meat. Then we can have fresh beef, duck, and chicken. I'm hoping we can plant a garden next spring, for fresh veggies...corn, carrots, green beans, lettuce, and a few others.

Butchered a steer last month, and we are incubating 10 duck eggs. We keep losing birds, but have not found out why. We are also now horse sitting, as well as boarding another steer, and a heifer.

If we can get the house we want, everyone is invited. Bring travel trailers if you want. I have power for two. I was thinking of bringing some to Chromys next LAN party. If I can make it work, we may have a fresh butcher by then. Fresh home grown beef and pork every night is awesome.

Well, my wife had to put a hog down, and our guest steer was fed to death by his owner, so some local needy families received fresh pork and beef. Two other hogs are scheduled for butcher on the 9th of May.

Its nice and refreshing to hear that you all are helping others. You hear so very little of folks being kind to others anymore.
