Re: Chickens

So I lost my awesome roo -mr big-to old age! Sad when there a really good animal. Luckily I thought he was slowing down and got a few chicks late fall. One is a copper maran roo like my old guy-he's turned out to be very good with the girls and a great protector as well-screams out when the Hawks ar...

Re: Cast iron wood stove

We had a friend who worked at DutchWest stoves a few years back and got a awesome deal. It's is a amazing stove-I'll include a photo. It has a front and a side loader which is not necessary but nice!

Re: Ask a leader livestock, farming and gardening questions here

Also, the two factors that commonly influence copper are the soil pH and organic matter. Peaty and acidic soils are most likely to be deficient in copper. Soils that already have high alkaline content (above 7.5), as well as soils that have had pH levels increased, result in lower copper availability.

Re: Would like to know if any others have done this

Well...good for you guys! Don't know if I'd still be up to a tent in winter as a permanent home for the season! It is harder than people know! It's actually harder than regular homesteading. I use to do winter camping for fun-not any more!!! I've done a old one room cabin for two years on my own-but...

Re: Re-establishing bug out zones

I didn't want the conversation to die on the second page. I simply added the perspective of the land owner. I'm sure there may be landowners that may be interested in being part of a bug out zone list-those that don't have a group going that need the numbers.
