Here's the 'snake proof chick run' I made a few weeks ago for our girls (out of those incredibly expensive steel panels I got from Bunnings wink.png )


Now that the girls are in the coop, I have dismantled it and re-used the panels to make a "chicken grass buffet' !




All I need to do now is put in some good soil and wheat and grass seeds. After a week or so the grass will grow up through the panels which the chicks can graze on, but can't scratch out. This will keep them supplied with greens till they are older and less flighty and I can let them out to free range within the portable fencing we use.

Yeah i seen some similar grass protectors when i was googling when i first got my chicks, they are awesome and ive always wanted to do it but whilst my chooks are in such a big area its not really neccessary/too pricy for now haha.

Tah the Maran I had to lock into the coop while i moved the whole thing onto grass..... was easier to snap a pic while locked up !

 

Gretal was the one on the left ( she was the wry neck chick ) doing great now.  The Roo will find a nice home once he is a bit older.

 

As for the Frizzle I pray its a hen ! and its companion ! that will take me to 8 girls and I really am pushing my limit with the hubby on that score !

 

I'll have to cave and let him have something I really dont !

Gosh i forgot how little and crumbly chick starter is hehe. Well chick feeds in, waters all fill to the brim since were expecting a 35 degree hatching day. Hopefully the heat wont be too much for them where they are. Big factor though. All tucked in safe and sound tonight! Sweet dreams everyone

I have been reading everyone's sorry for not replying this weekend. We took Zeus to the vets on Saturday for his sore leg and it looks like he has cancer. We are waiting confirmation today. Unfortunately there is no treatment available for this. Apparently it is very common for dogs of his age so I am a little heartbroken right now hit.gif. The vets have given him some good painkillers so at least he isn't in pain. On a happier note have marans eggs and the Millie fleur Belgians due tomorrow.

Good morning friends :frow

 

Sam .. fantastic photos!  The Snow Pea and Bee are great.  Wooo hooo a Frizzle!  What a little cutie!  Sending heaps and heaps of pullet vibes your way :fl  Your Maran’s have grown up!  I am so pleased to see Gretel is doing great.

 

Anniebee your garden in bloom looks gorgeous.

 

locknest4 great job on the grass buffet .. I think it will look too good to let chickens eat it ;)

 

satay oh no!  I am so very sorry to hear Zeus’ diagnosis … hopefully they are wrong and you get some good news today :fl

 

RodneyRooster also hoping to hear some good news from you today also :fl

 

I harvested some Snow Peas on the weekend, blanched and froze them .. I have a couple of stragglers so will be able to do a harvest on those soon.

 

My window veggie garden has grown sooo much!  All three of the tomato plants have flowers now and the middle one has two tiny tomatoes.  My middle capsicum has tiny little capsicums on it also.  Sadly, the heavy rain early last week knocked off the first flower which was a bit sad :(  Harvested 2 x tiny red chili's off the rainbow chili tree also.

 

I planted Purple Delight Climbing Beans last weekend and they sprouted on Saturday and are shooting up like something from Jack and the Bean Stalk ;)
