Been talking to the wife a lot on birds (no – not women, avians). She is such a town-ie. She is slow to move on living things. She was not happy with anything other than chickens. Mother-in-law is staying, and she seems to be on my side, thus we have some movement – ducks and Guinea here we come!!!!. Even better there are ducks chicks at the feed store (nice local business that does not have a decent web presence yet) less than a mile from base.
The first “chicken” tractor is 1/2 built, still tinkering with the design. Johnson’s (http://farmmarketingsolutions.com/stress-free-chicken-tractor-plans) design is good, but being a typical engineer I THINK I can do better – reality, his design is very good, buy his book.
