Currently our chicks are at 4 weeks and thus far we haven't had any casualties apart from the initial 10. We are in the midst of building our sleeping quarters as well as our sanitation unit. It is a slow process. This is due to the fact that we are strictly doing everything by ourselves without employing workers to do the 'dirty work' for us.
Our goal is to prove that we can do it, with hard work and determination.

Happy New Year to everyone!
It has been awhile since the last update.
We have been working on the farm and we have kicked off the new year with new chicks.
What we've done:-
1. Completed another section (8 Jan 2012)
2. Got water and electricity running (8 Jan 2012)

We are looking at some really good progress. More updates in the days to come!

At 12.09 this afternoon while working on our new farm today, I received a shocking text informing me that Eric has passed on. It was sad news as Eric had brought so much laughter and fun. Vallerian mentioned to me that Eric didn't have the appetite to eat this morning.
I suspect bad weather was the cause of his death. He was a brave Spartan Warrior Chief. Eric can't be replaced, he was a special rooster, one of a kind. He will be deeply missed by us here.
Rest in peace Eric.

Wishing all of you greetings of the season!
It has been awhile since the last post. We have been busy working on the new farm. Had cleanups for two days. Tried to post pictures a couple of days ago but was not successful.
Vallerian is here and we got off to a late start as planned earlier, due to the demise in the family.
Pictures are up!

It is somewhat a gloomy day today, although it is bright and shining outside. It has been raining heavily the last couple of days. Found 39 brave Spartans dead today, all given a proper burial. They fought hard against bad weather.
At least they made it through a week. Now it is a matter of getting replacements.
Eric has been so good even though, Le - a and her crew have gone. He did go missing the other day, but I found him in our living room sleeping on the floor.
Well, everything's on course for crunch time.

Well, I got up early this morning as usual and went to collect another 110 day old chicks, bringing current total chickens to 225 plus 1 Eric. It's getting to be a pretty serious affair.
Progress with the new rearing facilities are going on schedule. Another 3 to 4 weeks to be fully operational. Vallerian Tan and I are going to be very very busy. With Christmas, New Years and The Chinese Lunar New Year 2012 coming in quick succession, I'm pretty sure you all will see hunka hunka drop dead gorgeous chiselled dudes pretty soon.
Sold 50 Chickens yesterday. I received a call at about 5.40am requesting 30 chickens for some celebrations with regards to Malaysia winning the SEA Games gold medal in football (Soccer to the un-schooled). So delivered them around 8.30am. About an hour later the same guys called up and asked for another 20. What! I couldn't believe my luck! So again I sent another 20. I was hoping to be invited for the celebrations but, alas, it wasn't the case. But I am definitely happy I sold off those chickens.
Very tiring! Plus it was very hot yesterday! So it's a quiet day for me today. Right now having a freezing ice cold Nescafe. Soothing and refreshing.
Now for some rest and relaxation... till next time..
