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!

My chickens will be 10 and 1 week old respectively tomorrow. Overall health is very good, the week old chicks are healthy and I haven't lost anymore. Total count is 167 chicken.
Have done a lot of research the past few days with regards to rearing chicken commercially, I've gone to the Department of Veterinary Services and Animal Industry Sabah to ask for advice and they were very helpful.
I shall be forecasting and preparing my project paper to submit to them for approval. I have currently acquired the services of one partner (Vallerian Tan), to assist me in this forthcoming project.
Wish us luck on our journey

Pengeluaran daging ayam negara telah mencapai tahap saradiri sejak tahun
1981. Pada tahun 2006, aktiviti pengeluaran ayam daging tempatan
menyumbangkan lebih kurang 70% daripada keseluruhan bekalan daging
negara. Walaupun memberi pulangan yang cepat, pemeliharaan ayam daging
bukanlah satu pekerjaan yang mudah diusahakan.
Pemeliharaan ayam daging terdedah kepada banyak faktor yang boleh
mempengaruhi untung-rugi dan daya maju seseorang pengusaha. Antaranya
adalah ketidakstabilan harga pasaran, harga imput seperti makanan dan bahan
binaan, cuaca yang berubah-ubah dan penyakit. Ayam juga memerlukan
persekitaran yang selesa untuk pertumbuhan yang cekap. Pemeliharaan ayam
memerlukan perancangan yang teliti bermula dari peringkat penubuhan ladang,
pengurusan sehinggalah ke pasaran.
Kos pengeluaran ayam pedaging telah meningkat sebanyak RM2.06 sekilogram
iaitu dari RM1.61 pada tahun 1998 ke RM3.67 sekilogram pada tahun 2006.
Pada bulan Oktober 2004 harga siling ayam pedaging di ladang telah ditetapkan
in the country. Although with quick returns, the preservation of poultry meat is not an easy job.
Preservation of meat chickens are exposed to many factors that can affect the profit and loss and viability of an entrepreneur. among them is the market price volatility, such as the imputed price of food and energy building, climate change and disease. Chickens need comfortable environment for efficient growth. Rearing of chickens require careful planning from the establishment of the farm, management up to the market.
Cost of production of broilers has increased by RM2.06 per kg
ranging from RM1.61 to RM3.67 per kg in 1998 to 2006.
In October 2004 the ceiling price of broilers on the farm has been set
at RM4.00 per kg.

Weighed the largest chicks available, 2 in total, on average about 2.2kgs each. Not bad for chicks almost reaching 8 weeks! My normal free range chicks weigh about 600gms. The difference is so huge!
I expect them to reach around 3kgs in another 6 weeks. In the meantime, it's just feed, feed, feed and more feeding.

Also, an updated photo of the 7 week old chicks. They eat like nobody's business. I am getting pretty worried at the rate they're going. 50KGS of feed and corn in 3 days! I've tried to cut down but they look so adorable running to the door as I approach. I gotta be more disciplined.

This is Eric, our 3 month old Chicken. He was on his way to be food until something special caught my eye. I was watering some vegetables in the garden about a month ago, when, my neighbor commented that a chicken was following me around. I turned back to see Eric walking behind me. I tried to chase him away but he didn't flinch.

A rough idea of how my coop will look like in the future. (Done with Sketchup 8, sorry image isn't up to scale)
