The Organic Apprentice

sowing the seeds of learning!

BOK BOK Chickens!! BOK BOK


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
