Yaaaaaaasssss! (Last chance at peacock eggs this year)

Yaaaaaaasssss! (Last chance at peacock eggs this year)
do you want to see something cool that i found let's do it blue you ready to be a dad yet you guys can let me get to it so

this

is the egyptian by me looking that way pretty spiky look at that beak it's got a slight crossbeak you noticed that before modeled kind of like a polish poof you see your eyes apparently even have a cookie right now in the main flock anymore so excited to have some more of these

this

is the be a felder the coloring is just very intricate and beautiful

this

is the cream lake bar white sapphire they're kind of normal they got a little extra poof up here on top of their head i don't know how

this

one sees he's so pretty and

this

is our golden polish he's crazy-looking ducks they're a little over three weeks old now that bill's still we gotta work on naming these guys we gotta look through and pick out some names everyone liked your captain hook idea look at those guys great little baby bear we're over here with the meat birds we've got them in a little bit of a lane they've been in one spot for a little long so we need to move it forward

this

morning so because these coops are fairly small we keep them in there at night they have food and water at night and then we open it up during the day and then we've got them in a fencing area using

this

shocker knot fencing from premiere one and it's been pretty amazing knock on wood we've gotten 31 and we still have 31 meat birds we didn't have...
yaaaaaaasssss last chance at peacock eggs this year
that much success earlier

this

year

when we lost a bunch that we bought from the farm store these guys are all growing really well let me show you the difference between the cornish crops the ginger broilers and the delaware broilers so here's our biggest ginger broiler and our biggest delaware broiler delaware broilers they look a little different from the cornish cross where they have the the black speckles throughout and when we're talking about sustainable meat breeds these two are much closer to that than the cornish cross you'll see the cornish cross here in just a second so the cornish cross is about the size of these two combined corners cross grows full size in about seven to eight weeks they're at about six weeks right now so they're a week or two away gingerbread is supposed to be right around the same length of time not quite as big so it's it'll probably have a couple weeks behind it but still pretty impressive for a kind of a red ranger type bird to get that big they forge look really good too meat in the freezer quick with the cornish cross and then a few weeks behind that we've got the ginger boilers ready and then the delaware broilers possibly a sustainable meat breed on

this

farm we'll see so there's the three birds we got from mcmurray hatchery we'll let you know how they do in a couple weeks here when they're getting about full sized

this

is rhonda the brahma and gertie the turken you're in you're...
yaaaaaaasssss last chance at peacock eggs this year
hiding from the guineas he's been picking on us though yeah

this

time may be limited here your zebra so so we're getting ready to breed dolly again we don't have a bull here of course so we've got to do ai we've got to do artificial insemination so we actually just had a shot done uh yesterday it's not supposed to put her into heat and so later

this

week we'll actually do the ai with a company that's local to us won't affect the milk or the milk production at all it will give us a time to dry her off next february through march to be able to have the calf next april is

this

the farm dream oh yes so so

this

area is looking pretty rough we're out here with the mandarin ducks the red golden pheasants the

peacock

s and then all of our fancy chicks right down here check out these chicken tractors over here ripped p

last

ic basically in the winter we use the clear p

last

ic so the sun can come through warm them up during the day summer we use

this

uh solid green tarp holds up really well but then it makes it really dark in there so i was doing half and half well that p

last

ic has finally given up and so i need to get that out of here so basically i'm gonna have to get these green tarps off p

last

ic off and then get the green tarps back on there so i'm gonna mow a little bit get those tarps cleaned up every once while we need to do a little bit of maintenance in here and today is that day i was just moving the pheasant house and somebody...
yaaaaaaasssss last chance at peacock eggs this year
popped out an egg right as i was doing it still wet i guess i scared them enough to let out an egg so we were working in the garden today and we came across on our broccoli and cauliflower all these green worms so we thought we'd try to feed them to the chickens we tried it in the bantam little chicks but they were not interested they just wanted to run away from us so what are we going to try now a meat chick the mate chicks we think they're going to be hungrier and they're going to eat the worms oh she went right for it you want to pet him what's

this

one's name spotted peck you coming out i am i like to show you trying to get over the vents though can daddy have a drink and

last

but not least we're going to clean up the

peacock

tractor do you want to see something cool that i found let's do it three

peacock

eggs

let me get to it all right becky well

this

is pretty cool because these guys had stopped laying

last

month we had a couple that were sitting out there waiting to see if they'd sit on them and we decided to put them in the incubator let me show you what's going on with those we actually got two

peacock

eggs

that are supposed to hatch in the next couple days let's candle them show you what's going on here unfortunately that's really no development so

this

egg is bad and same here egg number two not fertile didn't develop so the cool thing is we've got three more to try with uh

peacock

breeders have reached...
out to me letting me know here at about a

year

and 10 months old

peacock

s won't have fertile

eggs

that really they need to be about two

year

s and older but there's a

chance

right like even a five percent

chance

it's worth seeing if we can get some p-checks blue and bell some of you guys started following our channel when we first hatched them out almost two

year

s ago we got those

eggs

in august so it was late in

this

season for

peacock

and they hatched out in the middle of september so hoping here middle of july that possibly we've got some fertile

eggs

that will hatch out in the middle of august that would be pretty cool huh if we get some little white

peacock

s huh oh yeah well any kind of

peacock

yeah these guys are india blue dark pied is their coloring some have asked when blue will get his long train you see his feathers right there they are colorful but not that really big train that you're used to seeing on

peacock

s that'll start next

year

all right so these two

eggs

we're gonna move out of the incubator they are done and then these three

eggs

we're gonna move in and see if anything develops we should see something if they're fertile oh and one other question we get quite frequently is why don't we free range these guys or at least give them a bigger area bigger area we're working on that that's going to be the aviary where they can fly around they can move in a much bigger area than they have right now as far as...
free-ranging we're working on the fence all along the front drive and we don't want these guys to go out on the road we don't want them to wander out too far we want some offspring first it takes a lot of time and patience for two

year

s until these guys have offspring and so we just want to make sure we have some kind of backup before we risk putting these guys out free ranging and risk losing them to predators hey who here remembers when we had a dance party for the

peacock

s to celebrate their birthday that was a good time right blue we got a big box to open we do we had a viewer that reached out to us i wanted to build us something pretty cool check

this

out look at that what do you think awesome so

this

was made for us by lindsay at backwood design company

this

is a piece of cherry that is over four feet long and then she uses some epoxy and other materials to make these really cool designs that look like waves on here she did an amazing job come up with a custom piece uh just for our home

this

is so cool looks just like water here yeah wanna test it out let's put it up you like what we picked out yeah kind of great well lindsay thank you so much be sure to check her out uh we've got a link to her website down in our description we opened a bunch more mail from you guys and just for the sake of time we're gonna post opening all of that mail over on our instagram and facebook but thank you guys for all the things you send us to our p.o box...
we'll see you guys later bye night after the video came out oh snap one more egg let's put it in thank you bloop i guess i should thank you too right bill good night
