Due to someone stealing my birds I have some new policies concerning selling chicks and eggs I have updated them on my sale page. I really tried to go about this like everyone was great and honest but in the end I find people will take your kindness as a weakness and use that for their own personal gain. I am an honest person and do not like being taken advantage of by the dishonest assholes in this world. When I entered into the chicken world I never would have dreamed it would be such a cut throat world. I am sorry for the inconvenience this may cause the honest people please understand. I am sure if you yourself have been in the Exhibition poultry world long you have also had a few similar situations.
Ok so we have been house searching for awhile now and I have seen some realy great houses with not so great land. I have seen some ok land but not so great houses. Well I think we found the house for us. It is on 3.4 acres (I would like to have had a few more but can deal with this), located in Tallapoosa, GA. This will put us closer to Ethan and hopefully we will be able to play a more active role in his life. The house is huge 3,400 sq ft with a loft, a sunroon, a full basement with it's own kitchen and bath, hard wood ceiling, and floors. Otis and Ethan will have their own man cave finally. I will have my house FINALLY! The chickens will have a barn custom built for them. So things are coming together for the Morehouse family.
Getting ready for the up coming show season. I have some goals I am really working towards and do hope I am able to accomplish all of them this year. I really enjoy the shows and the great people I meet along this journey. I love most of all the showgirls they are just the best things ever. Looking forward to running into a few old friends as well as making new one's.
I have babies running out of my ears 2 100% hatches back to back. I picked up eggs while in GA and should have more on the 10 of Jan. I plan to take anything that does not sell locally to the shows and sell them check to see which shows I am attending and I can hold your chicks if need be. 4 for 20.00! I hope to see everyone at the shows.
Ok so Edward and his girls, (I ended up getting 2 pullet hopefuls) should be here on Thursday. Jen is shipping him out today. I am thrilled. I have 18 eggs in the bator because the hens did not go broody. 7 of those eggs go into lockdown in 8 days, the other 11 I just set 2 day ago. I have entered Something to Crow About, on Nov. 13th in Newport TN. . I will be entering Edward and his girls at the Davy Crockett Classic in Dec. and do hope to come home with something from that show. This weekend is a trial run for the Dec show. I am excited to see how the west coast silkies and showgirls do here on the east coast.
If the eggs in the bator hatch I will be selling everyone of them I do not want babies at this time!
Jill Johnson came out today at 9 to do my NPIP certification. WE PASSED with flying colors. I can now ship birds for sale. Not sure I will but I can.
I got the pics up of the 2 splash roos I have up for sale. Spoke with Jennifer last night about Edward and possibly shipping a couple black pullets with him, Maybe even a black showgirl, that would be great. I am just so excited to be getting him let alone anyone else. I wish he was here now.
Everything else is wonderful here, I have almost finished winterizing the coops and added some extra security measures, so everything is set up and ready. The Bobbi Porto babies are doing great and I will move them over to the main coop soon. Oh and the eggs are doing wonderful, I have 7 in question but for shipped eggs I that is good.
