Most of my runs are covered so I've moved feed into the runs and have tarped most of the sides. My layers are in a hoop coop, which used to have just one tarp covering most of the top but sides open, with the rain coming in sideways, this wasn't working. These birds were all soaked through this morning and I was determined to find a way to keep them dry. They've also been sleeping on the bare ground, I guess the roosts we put up were not to their liking, so I made new wider and longer roosts for them today and physically moved them onto the new roosts tonight after dark.
I know this is an eye soar that makes my husband cringe, but I'm thrilled with their new dry digs, I think you all can appreciate it.
Penelope is still alive. She eats and drinks and walks like a penguin still. She can't make it back into the coop at night. I put her back in at night. She still hasn't laid that dang egg!
I had a busy weekend. We built tanks to put our koi and tilapia in for the winter. The weather got cold real quick this week, down to 44 on Friday. Today we moved everyone inside. My asthma is killing me and I was having a hard time trying to keep up with everyone.
One of my koi. The only one I was able to get a somewhat good picture of. Fish are so hard to get good pictures of.
The koi tank. Its about 750 gallons
The tilapa tank about 450 gallons.
