I love chicken eggs. But raising chickens is a full time job and I am retired.  Chuckle
I thought you said that you had to go back to work filling shelves at the C&B? 
A friend of mine tried chickens twice, her husband didn't put netting on the top of their runs and the foxes got them both times. She's forgiven the foxes,  Eyeroll but the bible says kill the foxes.  Lmao That will upset the lefties.
I do fill shelves, but I am retired. I freaking hate working again FJB!
Now is the time to get out of the trenches

It is said "You can take the girl out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the girl." 

So true.   Daydream   And I'm enjoying reading this Thread.  

I'm too old to homestead or even farm now, but I do have a photo that I can share.
My niece was going through old photos last week, and sent me this one, my brother and me on our horse Trixie, back around 1947.
I have hundreds of old photos, but they are not on my computer.

PS: My folks had around 100 acres, mostly in farmland but some timber.
My Dad also had a full time job in town, and farmed mornings, evenings and weekends.

Do it with love, and every night time prior to sleep ask the LORD what he would like you to do for him? You are a very talented man, you don't have to fill shelves, unless you are there for a reason and the LORD has a message for you to impart.  Kiss

Lovely photograph. My dad had just bought himself a camera when I began riding. I think mum got rid of those 16mm films.  Heartflowers

I still find it overwhelming that so many here on this forum have similar background no matter what part of the world we hail from. Maybe it's just basic human structure.

Ok here is my story and why at the age of 75 I still need animals and growing things in my life.
Once farm life is in your blood, you can't help yourself.

My Auntie Loris and my Grandmother harvesting wheat in Grangeville, Idaho.

The small town of Dufur, Oregon near the ranch where I started life. My father was a ranch hand on a massive wheat and cattle ranch on the ridge overlooking the Dechutes River, Oregon.

The house where my mother lived when she was 8 years old, then later where I lived when I was 7 years old. My grandparents raised horses and sheep on 900 acres.
Near the end of 8 Mile Road, Dufur, Oregon.

The other grand parents farmed a large tract of land just south west of Dufur, Oregon. Which is now a festival grounds. Grandpa would be shocked.

Well I can't say it's in my blood cuz I was adopted at birth and know nothing about my background.  BUT, my Mom grew up on a farm in Missouri, along with 2 sisters and 7 brothers.  Almost every Summer we would go back and visit.  One Summer my Aunt Ona helped me sneak some baby chicks home in a Quaker Oatmeal container.  I don't think we made it 30 feet before it was discovered and I had to give them back.  Chuckle
