This guy (and his family) are awesome.

If you are unfamiliar with Justin Rhodes, he has a daily vlog that he posts to Youtube. The video posts are about 10 minutes each and they are interesting and fun. You can find his channel on Youtube by typing in Justin Rhodes on the search bar, he is the first one to come up (or follow the link in this sentence). It isn't all about raising chickens, they have a massive garden, cows and children ("chidlers") that they are also raising. I watch every day.

As for birds, you can see his adventures raising several breeds of chicken, Guinea, duck and goose (Mr. Trump) and just recently added, turkey.

He has also done some free Youtube streams (mentioned in the post above). I just signed up for this one. In the process of signing up they show an extra free 7 minute video about "mixing the feed" for your birds. It is awesome, and at the end of the video, you see his youngest of 4 children (Mr. Brown).

edit: a bit of a translation for those who follow the link above to sign up. He has several colloquialisms for things so here are some of them. "The beautiful one" is what he calls his wife. He calls chickens "dinos" .

So ... In yesterdays vlog, "Guineas on the Roof", he talks about this live stream (webinar) that is coming up on Sunday.

He, gives a few hints on what is going to be on the webinar. What a sneaky guy. He points to this or that and says, "I will be talkng about a thing on the webinar and that thing is related to it."

For instance, he says, "there are X ways to keep predators away from your flock (posse)", then he points to his goose (Mr. Trump), "that is a reason why he is here." What could that possibly be? Well, in one of his vlogs about 3 weeks ago, he went out to his "chickshaw" (where he keeps some chickens at night and it is like a rickshaw) in the middle of the night. The chickens in the pen were calm, but old Mr. Trump was hissing up a storm ... protecting ... sneaky, huh? Shhhhh, you did not here that from me, OK?

In his vlog today, he did mention the extra video you can see about "mixing the feed" for your birds. He even showed a little taste of it on the vlog (just a tease really). Just go sign up and see the whole thing, K?
