Notebook/Organizer is full. Now for the other 101 things on my list -by the way I have never ever completed a list they seem to be ongoing around here & for everything I cross off I seem to add another 1 or 2. Does this happen to others???
We keep our chooks locked up every night in their pen they used to free range constantly & just put themselves to bed each night. Enter Mr Fox- need I say more.....Then we had different neighbors move in who have chook eating dogs so now the chooks are in their pen when no one is here but they still get a fair bit of time out free ranging which is really important to me. They don't seem to mind as they have their grain and the scraps, in fact I think they get to many scraps there was so much uneaten food in the pen it was becoming a problem. A friend of mine was giving me a garbage bag of day old bakery bread every week and the chooks weren't even touching it.
I had to get a new delivery of sawdust for the stables so thought it would be a good chance to do the chook pen. Wish I had taken before shots but on second thoughts would I really want anyone to see them. The biggest job is digging the old bedding, sawdust & straw out but it makes wonderful mulch or compost with all the old chook poop mixed in. Feels good to have mission accomplished funny how doing the simple things can make your day seem worthwhile. As for poor DS he just needs a nice massage he says his muscles are dying. So now I'm guilt free about my nice clean chook hacienda but full of guilt about child slavery. Do you think an iceblock might soothe him?? At least thats only blackmail!!
