Today, I was going to talk with you about how to start a podcast because multiple people have asked me this question. But then a homestead day happened. Got up, had quiet coffee, started roasting, missed a call. We are doing a round of meat chickens. I plan to also do a processing class. They are going to arrive Thursday this week.

And in true homesteading colors, the things that happen on the days they are supposed to happen don’t. So I picked up chicks this morning a day early -- and this is a good thing, but my benchmark for coffee volume is now going to be a push. A push that will happen no matter what because it has to. 

As I showed Tactical how to get the chicks going, I realized that lots of folks are starting birds for the first time, so today I will share how I raise baby chickens.

  • Save the date: Monday Sept 21 for the processing workshop. $65 and you get to take your chicken home.

From Dori: Freezer questions

What’s Up in the Garden

  • It rained a million inched and the weeds went from short to taller than I am
  • SVBs have been missing this year
  • Tomato blight has arrived
  • Fall garden stuff has not germinated, except the cucumbers

Main topic of the Show: Getting and Raising Baby Chicks. For meat.

  • Where to find them.
  • Choosing a breed
  • Preparing for arrival
  • Picking them up
  • Orienting them on food and water
  • Temperature in the brooder - book vs observation
  • Feed matters - growing feed vs other feed, volume of feed
  • Water additives (kickin chicken, apple cider vinegar, etc)
  • Supplementing with greens
  • When/how to get them outside
  • Tractoring vs free range vs captivity
  • Processing

Make it a great week!

GUYS! Don’t forget about the cookbook, Cook With What You Have by Nicole Sauce and Mama Sauce.
