A Place For The Future Past

JoAnne here.

Emilie and I are getting started with some of our gamebird raising plans. We both struck out with finding a mature breeding pair locally (wrong time of year — they are brooding now and can’t be disturbed) so after researching online we’ve come up with a source for chicks. Emilie will raise them at her place while she and her husband Red devise pens for them outside. These pens are being built with the plan to move them to the new place later. Again the concept of modular units that can be seperate at start but combined as they grow will be part of the focus, as well as sanitation.

Most hatcheries ship but their minimum order is for 100 chicks. Yikes! But we found McMurray Hatchery who will send 30 chicks — much more reasonable for us! We are starting with Jumbo Ringneck Pheasants — but I have an eye on including some fancier stock, like Silver or Lady Amherst for later.

The Internet is a wonderful place… šŸ˜‰
