Antibiotics: To be or not to be?
#10 of 21 Things You May Not Know about Peace Valley Poultry
On Our Farm
Yes! Isaac picked up the last batch of chicks on Thursday morning. The picture at the top of this post shows them safely residing in their wagon (mentioned in #10 above). Time to plan your winter supply.
The first beeves are scheduled to go to the processor on Monday.
ALL of our chickens that were old enough to be outdoors happened to have their hoop houses in a low area of the farm that had no outlet Friday night last week when the heavy rain was falling. Jim and JudyJo were hurrying home from an hour away while Isaac guarded the chickens. Finally having arrived home, we were making contingency plans for rescuing 2000 chickens when ... the storm turned! We felt really blessed.
Even though fall weather has not come yet, fall is here, and the heat doesn't seem to be as threatening. We are looking forward to the predicted cooler weather soon to come, though. The chickens and turkeys will appreciate it as well.
