The Organic Apprentice

sowing the seeds of learning!

BOK BOK Chickens!! BOK BOK

2 Comments

Well, this apprenticeship has definitely not failed to keep my mind buzzing with projects, programs ideas, and creative solutions to challenges! Considering I am less than one month into the four month experience I can imagine there is much more I will learn.

One new experience on the horizon is the purchase and care of a small number of egg-laying chickens. Bantry Bay Farm does not require chickens (nor is the added work of caring for them necessarily desired either) but both apprentices (Aaron and Myself) feel that keeping a few chickens could be great fun. Hopefully on Monday we will be  buying the chickens (maybe around 8-10 dollars each). We are looking at getting 4 or 5 and look forward to eating some fresh eggs towards the end of my stay. 

With the chickens, gardens, and fruit trees we will hopefully be able to get a lot of our own food from the area immediately outside our cottage.

Stay tuned for updates including chicken photos and names!

  1. Sounds like your having a blast man. Wish we can work together again soon

  2. Way to go Matty! Take advantage of the whole experience! Why am I not surprised that your chickens will all have names! Just don’t get any ideas about bringing any home! What goes on in NB stays in NB!
    Love & miss you
