It is a double whammy tonight. I have a hard time sleeping when the moon is full. I think I am descended from a long line of werewolves. Then my knees are killing me. I am guessing we are in for another weather change soon. I have not caught the weather as I was too busy Grandpa daycaring.
Anyway you cut it, I am stuck awake in pain at 3am. I bet you guys love to hear about my aches and pains. When you get to a certain age it is all you have left to talk about. Well, that and the foolishness of youth, and it youth being wasted on the young.
I do not quite understand the "nest".. You are just going to have to invite me over for coffee so I can see it!... Or send lots more pictures!
I am wishing I was still asleep, I have so much to do tomorrow, I lost two and a half days with daycare. When I got home it was dark, I saw I had a few turkeys that did not go into the turkey house. Stupid things. If I can catch the Guinea hen doing life, and throw her in a cage I will let the turkeys out tomorrow to free range. They should be fairly easy to put back in and Judy is here to help me, she has the day off.
I might lose Saturday too, my BFF that I own the cabin in Togo with has an International 240 with a back hoe up there. We used it this fall and the hydraulic cylinders are needing to be re-packed. It has a wide front on it and it is worn out, so it needs to be rebuild, instead of us doing it in the woods, he wants to bring it down here and we can do it inside one of the sheds.
We are not going to do it until warmer weather, but it would be good to get it moved now. I don't know if I have room inside a shed for it right now so we might just have to cover it. I have my sawmill in the bay I do my mechanic work in, and I have the bobcat, truck, boats, 4-wheelers and feed in the other bays. And the other shed, is just full of junk and a camper.
I need more buildings! I am think we need a good old fashion barn raising class here, but build a shed or garage instead.
The guinea got over their fear of the big silver water tank and went into the coop tonight on their own. They are the stupidest birds alive! On Sunday when I tried to put them inside they would get about 20 feet from it and run/fly everywhere like a covey of quail taking off. Then they would regroup and scream obscenities at me. LOUDLY!
Well, time to try and get another hours rest.
I have one of them too. I have caught her trying to sneak an egg away from us. I do not see the egg when she has it in her mouth, but her body language gives her away. We can tell she is doing something she knows she is not suppose to do. We tell her to "drop it" and she does, and out rolls an egg!
In the summer when the chickens lay wherever they want, I think she gets a few daily. I have tried to break her of it to no avail. I may have to go back to the shock collar (electronic brain) on her to see if she can learn. The problem is she is smart enough to know when she is wearing toe collar and when she is not. It is a PITA to have to put it on her whenever she goes outside. She has not taken them from the nest boxes that I know of.
