After I retired I wanted to stay busy on our farm. My almost 30 year career was in the hunting & fishing industry, so raising the birds I had hunted for years was a natural for me. Being married to my best friend, wife & help mate is all I could ask for. My wife of 34 years and I love living on our farm and doing the chores it takes to maintain it. We are living a wonderful slow life in our retirement. Our grand daughter is such joy. Having a big garden to feed us, raising bees for honey, loving our pets and no debt. I feel blessed to have enjoyed this country living and sustaining our family through growing our food and simple ways my whole life. I am happy to see others across this great country deciding to live instead of just collecting more. A less-stress farm life is making us very happy. *******************************************************

They Haved Hatched

I had 2562 hatch from my sitting of 3000 eggs. Very pleased with that rate. They have been placed in my brooders and we haven't lost any yet. We are still working on the flypens and should finish the heat in pheasant barn next week. It's a good start to the new year and the contraptions I devised to allow me to do the work being handicapped really makes me feel good about this quail farming.  Should get in another batch of eggs in a week. Gives us time to clean out the mess made from the last hatch.
