  1. Interesting and helpful video Bud. I am thinking about getting 50 hens and putting them on my balcony for all the eggs we can eat. Don’t know about the city laws but I here chickens and roosters all around me. LOL.

  2. Bud, thanks for the informative video! Really enjoyed that. Haha, your brother has to watch out for the Filipina Farmer, kinda snuck up on him! Please extend thanks to him.

  3. Very good thanks for that Bud and thank Lance your brother for that always good to see and his wife at the end good to see the working side of the family hahha

  4. Great vlog !! Sure enjoy the updates Mr Brown . By the way what years were you at the Comm station ? I was at Cubi 66-67 and flew in AD’s or Fat Spads with VAW-13 . There use to be a bridge south of your station we used as a target once or twice practicing LOL. That river im sure is full of ash from Pinatubo now. Cheers and be safe!!

  5. Did you install an insulators around your motor?
    How does your brother prevent diseases in his chicken farm?
    What is your brother monthly electric bill since he is running those 60watts bulbs?

  6. Thank you very much Bud for sharing your brothers Lance great video, good luck to both of you!
    By the way, now that you removed your old channel, maybe you can change the name of your new channel with the old very famous one, many who watch your TV episodes know the old name, if I’m not mistaken. Also the word live indicates that it’s a live stream, and as far as I know, many people prefer to watch only videos instead… Just a friendly suggestion for your consideration.
    Good luck and wish you all the best. Be safe, stay safe, and stay home! Best regards/NedπŸ‘πŸ’“πŸ‘

  7. Sweet potatoes vs yam. There must be a difference. If I buy yams my filipina wife will not eat them! Nice video. I enjoyed the chicken farm. My wife’s family has a lot of chicken farmers in it. Some just for their own use but one sister has 400 layers. Filipinos can eek out a living in many ways.

  8. You can get Rhode islands in Philippines either chicks or fertilised eggs, there are sellers on Carousel that used to be called OLX. These chickens can turn out up to 300 plus eggs a year and are also good for meat.

  9. Lance is amazing……he is an inspiration….instead of slowing down during his retirement years..he is “busy as a bee”….love to hook up with him and exchange ideas on farming…. we have a big farm also in Ilocos Norte that our youngest sister ( out of 7 kids, most of us in the states).. but chose to be a farmer in the Philippines….I enjoyed it much…. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

  10. Bud, I met Lance about 2 years ago when I approached him at Cebu airport, I found him to be very friendly and polite. – a real nice guy.I was travelling back to Australia.
