Fieldays 2016

Written by Outpost Buildings on June 23rd, 2016.      0 comments

Outpost went to Fieldays at Mystery Creek for the first time this year.

Outpost had 4 buildings on display at Fieldays this month; a Upland Garden Shed, 1 Bay Hen House, Pony Stall With Tack Shed & a Horse Shelter.

It was great to met so many lovely people, we had quite a few visits from customers. The weather was pretty good & our team had a wonderful time.

We ran a WIN a Hen House Competition that was very popular and the lucky winner was Tony Shergold. 

Fieldays at Mystery Creek is the largest agricultural show in the Southern Hemisphere! 

Our Horse Shelter was used by Sam and his Farmyard Friends - a family that run a small business with their pet farm animals. They visit schools and host children's parties to give children the opportunity to experience animals. They had chickens, a pig, goat, sheep and a pony at the show & it was very popular!

Collecting eggs from the nest boxes is one of the great joys of backyard chicken keeping and when the yield from the nest boxes isn’t what we expect, it can be disappointing, and at times, cause for concern. The following are the most common causes of a drop in egg production in backyard flocks with solutions where possible.

Decreased lighting conditions, Molting, Stress or or change, Broodiness, Disease, illness or parasites, Egg hiding, Egg eating chickens, Age, Predator theft, Nutrition imbalance, Water deprivation.

Fluctuations in egg production can be caused by a myriad of physical, behavioral, environmental and emotional triggers, some requiring remedial action and others, no cause for alarm.

New Shelter for the Wilson Sister's Kaimanawa Horses

Outpost gave a Horse Shelter to the Wilson Sisters to help them with their efforts to save the wild Kaimanawa Horses

“Late last year Outpost Buildings approached us and asked if there was anything they could do to support our work with the wild horses, when they found out we had just put in yards for the Kaimanawas they sponsored us a brand new Holding Stall so our wild ponies would have shelter during the winter months.
