We were able to enjoy a nice family vacation this past weekend. We took the kids, dogs and Legless (the rabbit) out to a nice little cabin in Georgia. It was an awesome time spent just enjoying being with the family without the daily "to do" list hanging over our heads. (A big thanks to Pops for coming over and taking care of the Ranch while we were gone.) Now that we are back, it's time to start preparing for the next hatch. We are gathering up Quail eggs in expectations of them hatching by the second week of April. We are currently out of frozen quail but are still offering quail eggs. The quail are all starting to come into lay right now so there should be plenty all through the summer.
The chickens are picking up in egg production as well. Several of the young hens (and ducks) are ready to sit on their first clutch of eggs but I am trying to convince them to wait until this cold weather gets past us. In the meantime, we are getting lots of chicken and duck eggs to sale. We are planning to offer them for sale at Earth Market in Greenville this summer. We are still offering all of our frozen chicken products for sale but they will not be featured at this particular market. I am considering taking orders and scheduling a central drop off time and date for the Greenville area in the future. Please let me know if you would be interested.
