We’ve been moving forward with some construction projects here on the homestead. The first of the projects which are underway are 2 additional poultry pens. One will be a “grow out” pen for roosters that I hatch which will be going to “freezer camp”. This way I can keep the roosters separated from my flock and dispatch them as necessary. Or, if I purchase cornish crosses to raise for food, I’ll have a separate pen for them.

The second construction project is an additional pen for guineas. I’m tired of ticks! They’ve been even worse than usual this year. Plus I really don’t like seeing snakes. Guineas take care of both of them. So we’re putting together a small pen for them.

I’ll try to post pictures, but construction and progress continues. That’s a good thing.
