It is amazing how precious time is in the spring. Weeks have gone by and it only feels like a couple of days.
Besides the chicks, the quail have settled in nicely. I started with 36 eggs in the middle of winter. Approximately 17 hatched. Once they reached 5 weeks we discovered only 4 were female. We culled the rest. I am now moving on to the next batch with 48 eggs in the incubator. I am hoping for a higher hatch rate since it is not in the middle of winter.
Our new addition to the farm includes 4 additional piglets. We are trying hampshire doruc breed to compare with the berkshire breed. I have to admit they are pretty cute.
