not too much to it.. you can be set up in 2 days


Yeah but I want them set up where they don’t stink up the place.


Build a nice sized pen and don't put alot in it they crap near there water source so if you have a big pen and don't put a ton in it your good to go. However, there is always a smell it's just how bad depends on the choices you make lol

That smell can be a bonus. We were in the process of donating some land to the state so they could build a fire tower in a more centralized location which would help everyone in the county but a neighbor started petitioning the move saying it would hurt the value of his home so we got word to the malcontent through a gossiping busybody that it was either the fire tower or a hog operation. He withdrew his complaints and has been smiling ever since.

Your going to need a big smoke house. I hope you don't wait to late and get your meat frozen. From my experience if it gets to cold the meat want take salt and will rot in a smoke house.
