Cut herbs and hung them in coop and put in nest boxes, sure does make things smell really good!
Have been trying to figure a way to get the egg shell & grit cups hung, most of the coop is brick wall, the wood areas are higher up except below the windows..my brain de-fogged long enough to come up with this for now....gosh, everything is going in slow-motion..
now back to sitting on the couch, seems all i have the energy for anymore...
this should work for now..unless they decide to dance on them..which they have been known to do:rolleyes: ...
The birds have been so layed-back and calm ..all were busy getting their feathers "did"..haha..and look at those little ones that aren't so little anymore..geesh...
should have eggs in a month or so..should, but of course they have the say in that:/ ..
everyone is a bit raggedy right now..feathers are every where..
all that 'stuff' in the run is the last of the garden.. pepper plants..sweet & jalapeno..they had a good time with that!
Those BLRW are gorgeous! Definitely on my list for the future.....

I still have two chickens who are still roosting on the porch on either the bikes or other perch every night. I put them in the coop if it's going to be colder than low 30's. My new silkies are still sleeping on the porch huddled in a ball too.
. I am working on their separate coop from the free rabbit hutch. Should have it done in a day or so before it gets too cold.

I also have a few small turkey left, expecting them to be in the 9 to 10 pound range at 2.50 a pound.
I will be taking at least four please, I will be asking my for ends in the next few days. It will probably be more like 10 chickens for this order if I may.

I didn't have any onions left from this year, so the onions, celery and flour were from the store, I must have spent a dollar on the whole pot!
What are rivels? Sounds tasty!
