Wow! I have got to stop all this spring cleaning and chores so I can keep up with y'all!!! LOL!!
Why is it the little things, like your DH buying you a dump cart/ wheel barrow, makes you fall in love with him all over again! So much for diamonds......LOL!!
Spent the morning cleaning the coop some more and I moved all the rabbits out. They are now enjoying the fresh air and sights and sounds of the great outdoors! I have then where I can see them from the house but I don't really like them there. It gets a little to hot and there is not enough shade for my liking. I have a much better location but until I can get a kennel to place their cages in, I want then easily visible,
Cali's kits have just opened their eyes. Dang they are cute things! I got the great honor to see one of the kits get out of the nest box for the fits time today. It was neat to see him scamper out of the box, take a few exploratory steps then scramble back into the box! The rest of his siblings are not quite so brave.
The coop is better but I still have more bedding to move out of it. I can only so so much in a day before I start feeling the spot where my pacemaker is. By them I'm ready for a break. I have big plans to get the coop ready for next winter so I want to be real thorough in cleaning it. I want to level the floor and pack it with leveling sand then place rubber stall mats on top. Then in the winter I can toss a boat load of shavings down and clean up will still be a breeze.
Other then that, the Girls are well and the young Gold Stars and Welsummers are ready to get out of the baby pen. I think tomorrow night will be the night to try that. I'm thinking that I might try to let Buzz out again. Maybe with the other younglings on the loose, the older hens wont mind Buzzy so much.
Well, I've got to go check the rabbits to make sure they have enough food, water and are not too hot. Then I v'e got to feed dogs and get ready for the seminar tonight.
I'll be up early tomorrow to get to the dump for for I have to wrangle chicks before we go to the second seminar. I'll probably "see" y'all tomorrow afternoon!
Have a great night and terrific weekend to those of you I miss!
BTW: Welcome to Wifi...no...no..no WiFC!! That's it!!! WiFC!!! And FEF (FunEFarm) too!
FEF-Some people mix large fowl and banties together. IMHO It really depends on the breeds of chickens. Some do well in a mixed sized flock and some do not. I myself prefer a Larger Fowl because of egg size and I also prefer the dual purpose breeds to that I have a decent table bird when the hens are done laying. I guess it all depends on what your ultimate goal is and if the breeds your are interested in will fit that goal.
Ok, I've got to go since I'm running behind...Man! I never should have sat down, not I don't want to get up...
