Real Homesteader Stories Episode 5!: The Ditch That’ll Save Us All, Broody Hens, & Duckling Update! [Video]

I had to take a break from recording anything thanks to chronic strep throat, but I’m back with a new episode of Real Homesteader Stories!

 

In this episode, I reveal the ditch that’s supposed to save us from the flooding in the MidWest (you can guess about how well that went). I also give you a sneak peek at the broody hen who’s hatching quite a few eggs, and you’ll learn how to tell whether your ducklings are male or female without vent sexing!

Real Homesteader Stories Episode 3: They Call It A Bird Brain For A Reason + Baby Bunny Update!

This week on Real Homesteader Stories, I tell you about our duckling drama & an update on the baby bunnies!

 

It’s been a couple weeks since my last Real Homesteader Stories (TM), and that’s because I’ve finally got the cough that wouldn’t die to go away. BUT I’m back now, with more stories about our farm!

 

Things were interesting as we tried helping a renegade duckling that broke free of the brooder and swallowed a string. You also get to see the baby bunnies (including the fosterlings) up close & personal!

 

(BTW, if you’re wondering, after three weeks of misery, I applied Eucalyptus + Melaleuca daily for 4 days using a roller bottle. Neat, no dilution. Learn more here.)

Updates from the homestead, y’all.

 

I’ve started something new, which is live streaming from my truck as I’m doing farm chores – and I’m giving y’all the straight poop about what it’s like on our homestead. I’m calling this series Real Homesteader Stories – and I hope you enjoy it.

 

This will probably come out once a week as I have time to download and slap the stories together. This week, I tell you all about:

  • The tornado that got my brand new shed
  • What it’s like gelding horses in the field & the umm…compliment? the vet gave us
  • Why breeding rabbits isn’t for the faint of heart & why one doe gets a lifetime pass on the farm

You can’t make this stuff up, I swear. I hope you enjoy it & I would like to hear your thoughts on it!
