Picked up a new chicken coop after snowmaggedon destroyed theirs this winter. They loaded it with a forklift and then it was quite the sight to see me, my wife and daughters unload it from her pickup. No injuries + no fight + it's still in one piece = success!

I just pretty much finished ours today. Custom built on site, and attached to our greenhouse. Couple little

touch ups and a few small things to set up and we’ll be ready for birds next weekend.

Wife gave our extremely ancient cat a “sponge bath” tonight. We don’t know how old he is, adopted him two years ago and that thought he was at least 12 then. He was a fairly plump old cat then, with two frost bitten, mangled ears, but otherwise just the coolest old guy. He’s really gone downhill the last few months, pretty much just a skeleton with cat fur stretched over at this point, with one eye closed up most of the time and hardly any teeth so he drools near constantly, but he still gets around ok and doesn’t seem in any discomfort, so we just keep prodding along. This is his “happy sleeping face” after getting all cleaned up ?

These types of guys are my dad's favorite animals. He likes them gnarly. He'd kill to have a one eyed cat that drools. He's currently in the market for an English Bulldog with an attitude problem because he wants it to sit next to him on the couch drooling and PO'd when people come over.

Exactly two years ago today we took possession of this fabulous 25 acre chunk of land. As soon as the paperwork was signed to purchase it, there was talk of chickens. I’ve done a ton of projects in two years, and finally this Mother’s Day I started to build the coop. Figured after putting it off for two years, I better get going with it or I’d be sleeping in the workshop! Well, today, we finally officially became a “farm”. About the smallest farm in the world by livestock standards, but I have a happy wife and kid so job well done I guess ?

We have prepared fairly well for any type of critter we would need to worry about around here. Coop and run is very solid, fencing buried deep and no easy way for anything to get in. There are several neighbours within a few miles of us with sizeable flocks, and they’ve not had many issues with predators. We’ve also got things setup to keep rodents to a minimum. Plenty of snap traps already around to keep them out of the shop, boat etc. We don’t have a ton of mice around, it’s actually been almost a year since I’ve caught one in a trap. I grew up with quite a few chickens, as well as many other farm animals so this isn’t my first time dealing with critters.

Avian influenza is a much bigger threat to domestic poultry than a stray critter.  @Way north bass guy knows about the threat with this silent invisible killer.

Yup. Haven’t heard of any outbreaks anywhere near me at all, but we’re gonna keep things as secure as we can, and there’s not many wild birds that are ever very close at all to where the chickens will be. We don’t want to have to deal with that sort of thing at all if we can help it.

Layers really do not have hardly meat on them though.  They're basically skin and bones.  Its the broilers that are raised to eat.
