I love your videos! I want this life right here!!

Donna Southwood says:

Make sure you clip those turkey wings as soon as they have flight feathers. Turkeys can fly up and over a fence like you you wouldn't believe!

rainbow kirby says:

when the turkeys mature are you gonna trim their wings? they could fly out of the whole farm…

J Yb says:

Can't wait for the webinar!

Jansta Gamsta says:

Fresh chicken manure is more on the nitrate side so you have to let it settle with some carbon example, wood chippins, mulch or the compost pile you made just wanted to let you know to have healthy plants.:)

Aljaž Plankl says:

Animals here burrow under… If i would keep them in structure without bottom i would loose them all. It's letting you know what's happening here and it's partly also a question to you if you don't worry at all. I know you have electric fence in this case, but as i saw you had cornish cross without fence… interesting.

+Justin Rhodes I am a first time chicken wrangler, and am in an urban neighborhood. Being in RI, I have RI Reds, Astro's and Easter eggs. They are about 7 weeks old, eating bugs, dirt bathing and all them other chicken things that I have learned they are supposed to do from your vlog. (they don't watch your vlogs, but somehow know what to do… some pretty intelligent design there). I know it's hard for you to answer questions, so understand if you don't, but I have 2…
1. When they grow to full size are hawks still a concern? How do you protect them from aerial attack when out in the open?

2. I know I've got a few years before they stop being layers, but when they do, what is their fate? Retired, hanging around or a trip to "the farm". They can't be edible that far out, can they? My son made the mistake of naming them. Chicken breast in a Styrofoam package from the grocery doesn't have a name.

Chris Barton says:

You often talk about the chickens tilling the soil. What is tilling as you understand it? In my experience, chickens don't turn over and oxygenate soil. in fact they actually sort of compress the top layer of soil a bit. Yes they'll get rid of weeds etc but not actually till.

javier Costilla says:

do u clip the turkeys wings or no after release so they wont fly off.not necesrly fly but u know wat i mean
