THE SIMPLE LIFE ON OUR OZARKS QUAIL FARM

MISSOURI OZARKS, United States
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. *******************************************************

It's Cold Outside

It is 2 degrees this morning. I was really concerned the birds might have froze, but as we feed & watered them they are all fine.  Once these critters get over 10 weeks old they are really feathered out & tough. We have given the birds in the fly pens a lot of places to hide . The birds in the barns still have heat lamps on them. I'm about ready to turn them off and let them stay in barn.
