well i would love to say the tractors are coming along nicely, and i will be installing the freshly rebuilt engine tomorrow... but that would be a lie, and lying is not nice. nope... haven't touched 'em yet. i just can't seem to catch up enough to even consider them yet... along with doing the brake job on my truck... and building the new tool shed... or finishing the trim in the kitchen... or the hall floor... or making room for the goats in the barn for the winter... or...

  Give them time and they will lay. Since one has started to lay, have you added oyster shells or chicken grit to help with the calicum issue. Now you need at least 12 hours of light give or take on the breed. Down here sun rise is at 6:30 and sun set is 7:00. But the time will shorten, I turn our lights on at 6:00. So when it gets dark the little ones will coop up because the coop has light and the outside is getting dark. How old are your? Ours are anywhere from 6 wks old to three years old. Just wait till they all start to lay and then you will be set for eggs.

Good Luck.

Well, I finally got one of my two tractors, and I added a couple of pics. The working one turned out to be a model 1250, from 1976, and the parts one is a 1250 from 1979. I can't wait to do some restoration!

Thanks, I can't wait til I can head out on Sunday for one of the two. Actually I didn't think enough to look while I was there, so I came home with no model numbers or serial numbers at all. (can you say dumba**?) So I took to the internet, and after looking on some Cub sites, and pouring over pics and features, I've decided they are 1250's. The 1250's were made from 74-80. I'm afraid that I now have a new addiction....

Well isnt this nice. Cucumber Beatles, Squash Beatles, Mexican Bean Beatles, and slugs. Add no sun and to much rain. What a rough first year. Finally broke down and spread some pesticide on the plants before we loose them all.

Great looking tractor! I was just lucky enough to be given a pair of "1980ish" IH Cub Cadet lawn tractors. I already have a nice mower, but these are super cool, and like they say... "Never look a gift tractor in the mouth!" Actually, I am very excited, and can't wait til I get a minute to go pick them up. They each have running 12 Horse Kohlers, and are hydrostatic drive. I'll be posting pics as soon as they arrive. Thanks again Uncle Bob and Aunt Korry!

Well I finally "finished" the coop by adding an out door perch and a gate to the pen. So we went and got our chickens :) 6 pullets, 4 white leghorns and 2 Rhode Island reds!

  Done :P
OK so tonight after work I fertilized the garden with Cow Manure and weeded it all pretty good.

I definitely think I lost the cantaloupe as they had sprouted before but tonight they were very much dead. I fertilized anyway so we shall hope for the best :P

I think the carrots have sprouted but the lettuce is still up in the air.

I did get the pole beans and pumpkins planted finishing off the "three-Sisters" mounds.

Just checked on the garden tonight. Some of the plants are looking wilted and dry. I didnt water today or yesterday but it rained for 3 days before that. I am going to add some fertilizer and water them tomorrow...

Doesn't look like the lettuce is gonna make it. I am going to try adding some fertilizer this weekend and give it a few more days. If nothing by then I will re-till the area and replant. Not sure what else to do. I probably should have put some better soil down in the first place.

We are going to hit up Shagbark tonight hopefully and get some chicken feed and hay. I want to add a gate to the pen area on the coop tonight as well and then get the pullets tomorrow.
