First one is just a bit of after action review on processing two cull roosters. Both were RIRs and both were starting to get the hell beat out of them daily by UPPGRAYYEDD.
Next is an overview of the Red Pharaoh Chickens so far. SADLY the night this was filmed something got into our brooder and killed all but one of the chicks.
Note this was our brooder in a closed and locked building not the little chicken tractor you see in the video.
I have some “have a heart traps” set but when I catch the killer, a heart for it I will not have! What ever it was chewed though metal screen and left a hole about the size one would expect of a large rat. It also though left some turds about the size of my thumb, I don’t know I am thinking opossum or may be weasel. Either way it is dead when I get it, and get it I will.
So I lost all three of the Red Pharaoh chicks. It is a bit late to incubate more this year. So I will just see how the two gals and one little cockerel I do have work out.
