New Critters…

I had 5 Quail Hatch out. Pick up three more Rabbits. I started a batch of Mead. I have also aquired a pork belly that I’m going to cure into bacon from the farmers market.

Another update on the chicken Tractor build

Well, the Chicken Tractor is starting to take shape. We got the back door and the entrance added today.

We are designing this Chicken Tractor to run 3 to 4 chickens. We are trying to keep the weight down. To keep it easy for one person to move. My woodworking skills are not the greatest thing in the world but they are improving with each project. I don’t think I’ll be good enough to build cabinets anytime soon, though. hehe

Kombucha

Kombucha Bottling Day

It is bottling day…

I made 8 bottles of Cherry Kombucha and 4 bottles of plain Kombucha and had enough to fill a quart ball jar. Which I have already have been sampling.

There are many ways to get fermented food and beverages into your life. Other than the acholic kinda. Every culture thru out history had some sort fermented food in their life on a daily basis. In the last 40 to 50 years the western diet has mostly omitted them. I feel that it is important for maintaining good health to include them in my diet too.

You might consider looking into fermented foods and beverages, to see if you are of the same opinion.

Take care and be safe people

Chicken Tractor Build

I’m building a chicken tractor out of and old swing set. We got the base on it before the Heat got to use. Yes were wimps. When it gets to temperature gets above 90F we call it quits for the day.

Building this for Janie. We’ll get all the bugs work out of the setup and maybe I’ll put one in at my place. But in any event, I get a little more experience working with wood. I am seeing big improvements, but I’m not going to be building pretty looking cabinets anytime soon

It took me a bit to find out what was going on so I could get back into my acct.

Anyhow a bit, of and update on what’s going on.

Lost a breeding male rabbit to the heat. That suck bad.

Last week quail hatch was 1 bird. Of, course it didn’t make it.

Last week I bottle 6 plain and 6 cherry flavor bottles of Kombucha.

Last week I built a new Aquarium stand for a 75-gallon Aquarium that is attached to my 175 gallon Aquaponics system. I’m also reworking all the plumbing on that system. This systems pump is getting old and needs to be rebuilt or replaced. Leaning towards doing both to have a backup pump again.

This week I have had 3 quail hatch out and 2 made it so far. I’m having issues with the heat and baby birds not eating. I’m also working on getting the hatch rate up. Trying to collect the eggs before the heat of the day gets to them.

Also this week I’m working on building a chicken tractor out of an old swing set. Pictures will be coming on that one.

I have a few other things on the list. We will see how that works out.
