Haven't gone back to read the 85 posts from yesterday yet...will do that when I get back from town.
Got to go to town for some extra big feeders and shavings for the houses. Also need some more livestock dust for the dustboxes.
Spent the last 4 hours this morning cleaning and spraying the pens and coops and getting ready for the next three weeks of 100 plus temps. Did some sorting and shifting of birds to outside pens and four in wall cages getting shots and special treatment. One is my favorite cockerell from the F1's.
Heat is getting to many down.
Let the older birds out to free range this morning for a couple of hours while I did the changing and cleaning....looks like I will do this for the next several weeks.
Cleaned and sterilized all water and feeders and added electrolites to all the water containers.
Moved all the cochins inside and separated out a pen of cockerels.for freezer camp. Also set up hoses with spray misters for the outside coop pens.
Still need to refill the dust boxes. Will go get sand from the dry patches in the pasture when I get back from town.
