Purina Feeding Chart for Small Flocks

I've always found this to be very useful. Even if you don't use Purina feed you can match it to you brand. Click on the image for a larger version.

Poults are due in a week!!

I've got 22 eggs in the incubator and another pile under the hens.  Hatch day is Saturday 7th May.

Mother hen and poults last year.
When they were done hatching she moved all the unhatched eggs out of the nest.

Ridley Bronze Tom - Bigga Boy

Copyright Andy Jones © 2015-2016
This is Bigga Boy my Ridley Bronze Turkey at about 8 months old. His devastating good looks won me the 2015 photo of the year competition on Poultry Swap Ontario.

Poultry Talk Ontario

It's been a long time since my last post.  The forum (Poultry Swap Ontario) I depended on when I started out closed down. Good news is that some of the members set up Poultry Talk Ontario. It's an excellent site and you don't have to be in Ontario to use it.
I'm proud of the logo as I designed it :)

The Chicken of Tomorrow

This is how the meat bird started back in 1948. Hard to believe what we raise now.

It's almost time.

Hatching time is almost upon us. I'm going to be hatching White Chanteclers and Ridley Bronze turkeys. Chicks and poults will be in limited supply but if anyone is interested I'll do my best to help you out. Pick up only, I'm approximately half way between Kingston and Napanee, Ontario. First come first served.
