I purchased meat chicks, they should arrive in about 2 weeks! I got red broilers and slow-growing white broilers, 25 birds in total. This is our first year doing meat birds, I'm excited to see how they turn out!

Also planted some seeds (lettuce, spinach, kale, radishes, onions and carrots) in the greenhouse, but nothing has come up yet. It's still pretty cold here, there's still snow on the ground.

How exciting! I'm itching to get meat chickens (well not actual broilers, but a nicer eating, slower growing heavy heritage breed) and get a garden put in, but we've had such crazy weather that we've not been able to do much yet. Have chicken coops and tractors to build, and a chicken run to fence off (my chickens are free ranging at the moment which means I can't plant anything or they dig it up!) We have an existing raised bed area outside of our fenced yard, but it's not fenced off on the other sides and the cows would eat anything I plant there too. lol. So I really need the weather to bugger off. We had a whole month of insane heawave (35-46 degrees Celcius - usually there are less than 6 days a year where it even reaches 32 degrees, let alone much hotter) and the last two weeks have been so wet. 41.5 centimeters (16 inches) of rain in two weeks, with over 30cm of that in 2 days...

DH has 3 weeks holidays now though with his parents coming for a visit so hopefully with their help we can take care of a lot of things on my list.

We did get goats though! We have 3 Alpine/Nubian does, about 10 months old. They're currently at another farm visiting a buck, so hopefully they return pregnant and in 5 months from now we'll have babies and loads of milk! Also got a lovely breeding pair of gold laced wyandotte chickens (yay my first rooster) and I'm hopefully picking up a breeding trio of speckled sussex early next week. really really need to get their coops finished now though...
