According to my incubator activity is it!
I've hatched out 45 chicks so far in 2013 and it's only January 10th! Yikes! I have another 8 dozen eggs in the incubator now and setting more every week.
So far, it's been all French Black Copper Marans that I've hatched.
Hatch rates have been excellent this year too! The last batch of eggs 25 of 28 developed eggs hatched! And these were shipped eggs! That's outstanding!
I'm still taking orders for processed poultry for this year. Please let me know if you are interested.
Things are relatively quiet around here otherwise. It's too wet and cold to do much work besides the daily farm work. We aren't expecting any calves until at least August this year, so we have a while to go yet.
We're starting to order our seeds so that we can have a better garden this year since last year's was a huge fail. It's hard setting up a new garden when your last one was so nice!
We have farm tours scheduled here at the farm in late January. I'm excited and nervous to hold our first official farm tour with a group.
That's really about it going on around here! Very boring really!
Don't forget to contact me with your Hiland orders, processed poultry orders, and to reserve egg hatching time!
Thanks and Happy New Year!!!
