Hey ladies! Long time no type! lol. We have been sooo busy! Between registering my 4y/o for school, building animal housing, buying rabbits and chickens for the aforementioned housing, and getting my 11y/o set up for deaf camp this summer, I haven't had time to breathe. So to catch y'all up on my psychoticness, here's a recap:
After 2 years of discussing raising animals for meat/egg/fur/feathers my husband and I finally got chickens and rabbits. Their housing is all repurposed materials from when my grandfather had the house redone. We originally had 10 chickens (7hens 3 roosters by mistake) but 5 of the chickens we got from the auction aparently had infectious bronchitis and killed half our flock. Grrrr. We bought more chickens (NOT from the auction) and have quarrentined the ones who got sick. We got 5 rabbits from the auction (perfectly healthy) and are expecting our first litter of bunnies in the next 2 weeks. Awesomest thing ever? We traded a truck toolbox (that I paid $20 for) plus $40 and got 2 10ft rabbit hutches with 6 rabbits, 4 of which are pure bred rex. Now we're just waiting to see what happens with the chickens who got sick and for the pullets we bought to get big enough to make eggs. Between taking care of my 3 spawn babies, working full time, taking care of the animals and trying to make time for the hubs, I'm freakin' beat! What've y'all been up to?
