Pig Share!

Pig Share!

We are participating in a pig share this year!  There are four pigs in a large wooded area that is fenced in with electrical fence.  This allows them to root and dig and generally enjoy a very natural habitat.  It also cuts down on feed and odor as they spread their manure out over a wider area.  These pigs will be at market weight of 250 lbs or so by September when they will be taken to our local butcher for processing.

What do sauerkraut, pickled eggs, and yogurt have in common?  A lot more than you might think!

I learn the coolest stuff from the "New Book Shelf" at the library.  I pick up books that pique my fancy, but that I would likely never go on the hunt for.

Incubating chicken eggs part 5 - Moving chics to brooder

We moved the chics to the brooder the day after the hatch.  Sadly the other two eggs mentioned in this video did NOT hatch.  Not sure why.  They had pecked one hole but didn't get any further.  I opened the eggs and found fully developed chicks inside.  The only think I can think of is that these eggs got jostled and rolled around as the other chics hatched.  Maybe that dissoriented them?
