念願のニワトリを飼う計画が動き出した。

色々な人に話を聞いてみたが鶏の入手方法はよく分からない、昔は皆んな飼っていたけど津山の田舎でも鶏は殆ど見かけないのが現状。

そこで近所で飼っている家に訪問して聞いてみる事に。家の場所を母親に話すと、そこは同級生のオサムちゃん家じゃないかな~って事で突撃訪問!

寝起きっぽいオサムちゃん、両親の話をするとやっぱり同級生。オサムちゃん曰く有精卵を手に入れて孵卵器で温めれば良いとのこと。孵化用の種卵じゃなくても管理次第で大丈夫らしい。

注意する事は獣の被害がある事、タヌキ、イタチ、ハクビシン、一番はカラスが雛鳥や卵を狙って来るとか~こりゃ大変だ。

The new project has started!

Having chickens at our garden was on one of our wishlist. We asked people where to get chicks or eggs. Well no one sure about it…

Come to think of it, you hardly see the chickens even countryside of Tsuyama.

Still we knew one has some. So visiting the house and asking them would be the best. I told about the location of the house to my mom and she said that’d be Osamu’s place. He was my parents classmate!

When we visited him without notice he looked he was just got up. But he was kind enough to give us a lecture how to raise chickens.

First of all we needed to get fertilized eggs and a fertilizer. And both of them you can get online of course. Also he gave us cautions that we need to protect them from other animals especially crows. They take chicks and eggs wisely.

ともあれ孵化迄には温め始めてから21日、育雛もテント内でやるからニワトリ小屋の準備は急を要さないので~早速ヤフオクで岡崎おうはんって卵肉兼用の純正国産鶏の有精卵を購入。

It takes 21days to hatch then chicks will be grow up in a box in our tent. So can worry about their house and protection later. So we got fertilized eggs on net auction!

孵卵器も必需品と言うことで購入して湧く湧くの育卵開始!

A fertilizer was also necessary so we bought it. Can’t wait to see them hatch!!!
