Today on the homestead we are going to relocate and move around a lot of our farm animals including the peacocks or peachicks, the pheasants, the dairy goats, and the silkie chickens. Our baby peacock chicks have just out grown their brooder up at the farm house, and we are going to move them to the brooder in the barn. I am going to put up the ultimate chicken coop in a dog kennel and move all the silkie chickens in there so we can start hatching out fertile silkie eggs. Next we are going to move our Nigerian dwarf dairy goats, or just the bucks, aka the TNT goys

, back into their goat pen because we have baby goats coming soon. Lastly we are moving the pheasant chicks into the new pheasant coop or house we just built for them. So that is like 4 major farm animals moves happening today on the farm and fingers crossed we can get all the livestock moved with no issues today!

We have been raising chickens for years now, and during this chicken adventure we have been on, we have have raised or owned so many different types chicken breeds. From heritage breed chickens, to rare chicken breeds, to Plymouth rock chickens to ayam cemani chickens. You name it, we have hatched it or have raised it. But over the last few weeks we have noticed that MC really loves certain breeds of chickens, and those are mainly Silkie chickens and show girl chickens. These 2 breeds she is truly passionate about, and so we have decided that we are going to start to slim down our egg laying flock somewhat, and start focusing more on those specific chicken breeds, the silkie and show girls. We plan to get NPIP certified and that will allow us to show our silkie chickens and also will allow us to ship fertile hatching eggs as well. We hope that MaryCarl becomes the Silkie Queen of the southeastern US and starts to learn more and more about the Silkie and becomes an expert on these particular chicken breeds.


Around three weeks ago, a fan sent us 5 ayam cemani fertile chicken eggs and also 5 cream legbar hatching eggs, and this week, these little chicks hatched. We are super excited about the ayam cemani chicks, and these all black chicks are just something to see, and we cannot wait for to see what they look like as they get older.
