As of today we are up to 10 white and 2 brown eggs per day. I am hoping for a peak of 20 eggs a day… so if you are in Cedar City area and want fresh eggs email or text me.
Freaked out the geese tonight. I recorded them honking at me and played it back to them… very confused birds now 🙂
Oh, did I mention WEEDS?? I finally, after the last rain, got all the weeds pulled in the main garden. They are in a pile by the shop being investigated by chickens. The geese dont approve of old weeds just the fresh new growths. The weeds that ”were” in the perennial garden are now in piles also but most of them I cut out with sharp objects…hoe, trimmers, shovel, axe! First layer of landscape stuff and rock is now down on about a tenth of the area! I did 3 wagon loads of rock last night and got a corner done! Will attack again tomorrow… today was day of rest and bird watching.
Speaking of birds, Mr B the polish rooster is now called Mr BULLY. Joanne says he is also very confused as to sex.. has no idea if he is hen or rooster. But he is a bully, ran poor little Minnie under a pile of wood, attacked a duck.. that didnt work out well. He tries to mount the other roosters and peck at the rear ends of the hens. So… he has separate housing and I will be glad when new ”rooster roost” house comes on tues. I will say.. one of the bronze polish roosters did take after Mr B today and gave him a nasty peck on the head.
Garden is starting to slow down.. just not on Lemon cucumbers! even the chickens are tired of them. I have several nice little pumpkins ripening and still plenty of tomatoes. Picked last of beets today.
Well, time for bed… remember…. #LONG LIVE LONGMIRE!!
