re: What’s stopping you from moving somewhere else? - FowlGuy
I was born and raised in south La. after graduating I lived in three different states during college and currently reside in the last one. My wife’s family is from here.

Might be what they call smell melons or buffalo gourds, they grow wild in the ditches of sugar cane fields, I used to pick them all the time when I was younger dove hunting we would throw them up and shoot em like skeet lol. I have heard that you can graft a cucumber plant on that vine and it will g...

re: Raising rabbits for meat - FowlGuy
Depends on how you want to do it. They lay 300 eggs a year and the chicks mature in 6 weeks. It only takes 17 days in the incubator for a chick to hatch. So if you had 10 breeding pair you could prob either get tied of eating them or just don’t incubate as much. ...

re: Food plots 101 - FowlGuy
If it was allowed, I would disk and plant the power line as my food plot, put up a box blind for rifle, and if you’re a bow hunter, set up lock ons on trails leading to the food plots. Most mature bucks will hardly ever get out in the plot during daylight but they will scent check does skirting the ...

re: Raising rabbits for meat - FowlGuy
Right now I have 38, I built a three tier stacked quail pen with gravity waters and rabbit feeders. You can raise “meat quail” 5/sqft, egg layers or breeding pairs 1/sq ft. My bottom pen is 12 sqft so I could potentially have 60 quail in there at one time. ...

re: Raising rabbits for meat - FowlGuy
I did it for a while. Really didn’t like the flavor that much, wife didn’t mike the flavor much either, not fun to clean. During the summer they don’t breed as well as in the fall-spring. I bought some cages from a guy that raised rabbits when he was younger now he raises quail for high end restaura...

re: DIY quail/chicken incubator - FowlGuy
Yes they can fly, and no they cannot be free ranged. Some people farm bob white because they fly well, the breeder will make a “fly cage” or “run” and it allows then to fly when they want, they raise them and sell them to clubs to put out for guest to shoot. Bobwhites take longer to mature but are a...

re: DIY quail/chicken incubator - FowlGuy
Particularly coturnix quail, AKA Japanese quail, mature at 6-8 weeks of age start laying eggs and are ready to be eaten. Takes a chicken 9 months. They’re also bigger then bobwhite quail. From a homestead view it’s more efficient of a bird to raise, they’re smaller and you can raise them in small ca...

re: 2020 Garden Thread - FowlGuy
It’s just like with anything else. Initial start up cost is high depending on how big you go then after that you can save. I have a big garden, I have a rear tine tiller, couldn’t imagine life without it. I also have a tractor but I have a lot of land to maintain. But say canning stuff, mason jars a...
