At the start of each new year I like to look back, see what worked and what did not work. Then take this knowledge and apply it to my plans for the next year.
Twenty fourteen was a heck of a year. It was the first full year my wife and I spent on the farm. A lot of what I learned was about fence building, chickens and chicken predators. A lot of that information has been covered in previous articles and youtube videos. So I am not going into a lot of depth on those repeated issues.
While building the new chicken yard I used culled telephone post for corner post. This worked out very well, especially if you have access to an auger. Digging a 10 – 11 inch hold through clay with posthole diggers is not my idea of fun, but it worked.
