We changed up the A Frame today to enclose it completely for the 21 Rhode Island Red girls, and the two Jersey Giant boys.  They seem much more content having lots of covered area, and we even got the 22'x35' run fenced, and covered with flight netting so they can be safe when they are outside too!

The results of our incubator test:



Out of 21 eggs we put in the incubator we hatched 12 chicks, of which 11 have survived to day 4 & 5.

Trying out our "new" incubator.

Scored this of a Facebook for sale group yesterday.

Tomato plant sale

Today we're trying to sell some tomato plants.  We posted it on our facebook page, and even paid to boost the post.  Hopefully we didn't waste time, and money.

Greenhouse is finished.

Finally got to work on building our greenhouse.

We bought the lumber new, but the roof trusses came off a recycled mobile home, the metal was leftover from our garage, and the windows came out of an old school.  I would have used all reused/recycled/upcycled stuff if it were possible.

All in, we are about $400 into this greenhouse.

We are getting an unusual amount of snow here in coastal SC, at least Otis seems to like it!

We have a possible, future fox problem.  This guy dug under the fence, and was in the run a few nights ago.  Thank goodness we lock our chickens in their coop every night.

We built a 6"x6" frame for our swing.
