  Laying Hens
I decided to get 6 Barred Rock chicks. I am told they are very good layers, and they are cold hardy.

Come visit me, Fluegel.

  Bottle feeding
Luckily we are surrounded by milk cow farms and a few milk goat farms and one of these generous guys (or gals) help us out with natural cow or goats milk.
As far as milk replacers we have found these to be the best of :
Sav-A-Kid milk replacer 25lbs $ 25.00 approx.
Sav-A-Kid milk replacer with Deccox 25lbs $60.00 approx.
and we also used the following with the replacer.
Solube Colostrum Powder, you mix this with the replacer.
9oz.jar $10.00 approx.
Your nearest feed distributor should carry these, if not we purchase our products from : www.jefferslivestock.com
I hope this helps you as it has taken us a lot of trial and error and lots of input from local farmers.
We also would like to invite you to our facebook page as you will find quite a bit of info from farming friends there as well. Good Luck!

  Bottle feeding
Thanks for checking out our blog.
Yes I will be posting pics of our goats today.
And yes we have bottle fed quite a few of our babies and I mean it is just like having a new born baby!
We fed about every two hours for the first seven days and then the second week went to every four hours and the third week on top of liquid we began to gradually give solid food.We did this for 6 to 8 weeks depending on the baby.Even with adult goats always gradually make changes to their diets as we have learned the hard way.
I wish you luck with your babies as they are a pure joy to have in your life!

  I sure hope they grow for you all. Just watch the white one, she will sunburn the worst out of the bunch. But a mud wallow will provent her from burning too much.

Thank you for your suggestions, it's always good to know from someone that has had a certain breed of chickens or ducks. Know what to look for and any problems.

Best Wishes!

  Where you located?
Thanks for the comment. The pic is of one of the properties I'm interested in buying. I hope to purchase something in the spring. I aspire to do what you do now! I just want a safe haven for me and my kids. Be self sufficient with our food and have a homestead away from the city for my family. Maybe get good at it, and I will teach try and educate people on sustainable farming and ranching.

Take Care!
