Pro Active

We always think of ways to make it easier for the farmhelp to cope with the ever increasing workloads. Goes with either growth or you get more work when you are lax and you always go back to fix things :(

I want to think that we are always busy because we are growing.

Our ranges have the nipple drinkers as water system for the Sunshine rangers. I don't know why we haven't done it for our brooding area and houses too??? We were meeting on how to make things lighter for labor and talks about motorized curtains so you just flick a switch, auto feeders even in houses, additional water pumps installed, solar panels for lights...and of course why not nipple drinkers in all houses!

A drum is attached to a faucet outside the housing. You just have to open the faucet to let water into the drum. If you need to add some concoctions to your drinking water, it is easily done in this drum. Water is dispensed when the chicks peck on the nipples. As a bonus, they have a perch.

Habits are hard to break and there are still waterers placed inside the housing. The farmhelp will stop doing that once he is convinced that he isn't being eased out of his job.

Eventually we will go into mechanized feeding system for the Sunshines. Not really to get rid of is so for them to do other things that machines can't plant vegetables and trees :)


  1. hi po. marami po talaga ako na natututunan sa website po ninyo... and right now po nag start ko na pag aralan ang pagaalaga ng sunshines... mag two weeks old na po sila... 10 lang po ang alaga ko. panghanda lang muna sa bday ng anak ko sa july 20... sa tingin ko... sakto na yun... ang lalaki po nila kaagad, para sila hinihipan ng hangin. excited na nga me na pakawalan sila sa range.btw, po san po kyo naka purchase ng solar panels? i'm planning po na mag alaga ng 50 after nito,pero before po yun mag attend po muna me ng seminar...thanks po

  2. @ KAMPILAN, Ang solar panels ay gagamitin namin para sa mga ilaw sa farm, para hindi na iniintindi ang pag "on and off" ng mga ilaw. Madaming nabibili nyan. I see them a lot sa mga trade shows, magtingin ka sa classified ads or sa phone directory. Hindi ko kasi binili yung gagamitin namin. Yung panels ay gamit na dati sa hot water.

  3. tanong ko lang po, yung po bang sunshine related po ba sya sa breed na red star. tama po ba? kaya din po sya naging number 1 dual purposed breed.
    nag umpisa po kse me mag research. btw, may dealer po ba kyo ng sunshine sa malolos bulacan.
    duon po kse me mag set up ng farm- farman ko..hehe.
    thanks, po sa respond tungkol sa solar panel.

  4. @ KAMPILAN, sorry pero hindi ko pa nadinig ang red star. Wala kaming dealer sa Malolos :)
