I made one with a metal feed pan too; it works great. Now I have a larger waterer I need to make a bigger one, maybe an oil pan next.
Okay, so our local car wash at KT has a curse against me!
I went there today to wash the truck good before I put the topper back on and it is too cold to keep it off.
I fill my gas tank at the pump, and pay for a wash. Go around to back and get in line. I am second after a white F150. That truck pulls in and get his wash. Then, instead of pulling head to the blowers, puts it in reverse, trips the start to the wash and sits through MY wash!! I am just laughing, cuz how can something happen twice in one week in the same car wash like this? At least he didn't floor it and ram the front of my truck in. Still.... idiot.
I called inside and they gave me an upgrade to the Elite wash and I got in. The dope in front of me, gets out, looks at me, shrugs his shoulders then drives off.
I think I will stay away from that one for a while.
I did get an estimate and it is coming close to totaling, but I think I may be able to get it fixed instead.
Back to work. Pumpkins roasting, more waiting. Out to play in the wind again.
At that point I'd let my truck be dirty. Yum. I have to find some good pumpkins for roasting. I freeze it for pies.
Hi @sourland I have seen you around BYC. Glad to have you here!!
@Minniechickmama WOW! way to go on all your turkey stock!! And sounds like you have lots of potatoes!! Awesome!
I have begun the canning of the apple butter I had started yesterday. 2 of the 3 crocks were ready to can so far I have 13 pints. Very excited to see how it turns out.
I am taking full advantage of the weather today. Drying the clothes on the line for as long as weather permits!!!!
Well, I will be in and out today. Have a great autumn day all!!
You guys are way more ambitious then I am. Like the pumpkin I freeze apple butter, in fact, if I can't freeze or dry it, it doesn't get preserved. I have never learned to can. My mother would tell me horror stories of canning that have scared me away. Maybe I need to get over that.
Well Ralphie picked the right weekend to go to Togo. As some of you natives know it has been a fantastic couple of days in the Nortland. We will soon be dodging snowflakes, so these days are at a premium to be enjoyed.
Hope all have coops and chicken yards prepared for old man winter. There are sure to be some nice days ahead, but it is nice to be ready so one can enjoy other activities of autumn.
I hope that Ralphie does not do anything crazy in the woods, like run off with a female Sasquatch. Judy would be forced to care for all that fowl alone.
I think we would see a large poultry sale.
Had to upload pics the long way around,, sent to my email then downloaded into a file then uploaded to BYC,,, almost miss my old phone...
Me and DIL went to Aussie`s today,,again,,LOl im going to end up moving in there I just love it,, it is very peaceful and beautiful... So be prepared Aussie when i show up with my bags i wont be leaving...
Let's see, If we could move my DD & SIL out of the basement....
Now for the Gross Pics... OK Aussie gave me the push i needed today to do this she told me I HAVE TO...,,, The 1st time I did it i didn't do it very well but today I DID it ,,did it well and was proud of myself... I was worried i was going to hurt my girl the 1st time but this time i knew it was best for her..BUT she didn't seem to mind at all she even seemed like she was OK with me doing it.. and she sure seemed happier after it was done...
1st i put a warm rag on her ear to soften it,,the i took tweezers and pulled scab off and with it came hard yellow gunk..then i put ear wash in it. then took qtips to it.. then cleaned it again. then packed it with neosporin.. I'm sure she felt better.. put her back outside and she went running to her friends...
believe it or not it looks way better then it did a week ago...
What are friends for but to encourage you to do the grosses thing possible! She will be happier. Hopefully the ear will start coming together without scabing over.
I've had these a few times, but never found anything wrong with the hens, just happens sometimes I guess
Oh, no... that is terrible! I would stay away from there as well, yikes! People are nuts!
I close the door at night when they are on the roosts so the air doesn't come up and over them. During the day they are in the run, so it doesn't matter. Even at 20 below last year they were out in the run. but If it ever seemed to cold, I would keep them in and close the door.
Wow, what a great problem to have!!! I only have 5 so... call me envious!
You can order them from alot of places, it depends on what you want to get. Also MInniechickmama, right here on our thread sells chickens, she is near you if you want her breeds. Also the guy at anoka ramsey farm and garden sells chicks/chickens almost all year long. I think he doesn't get new chicks in novemeber and december, you'd have to call to see what he has. last time I was in there were several breeds there.
Nice photos! Aussies place looks awsome! I'm surprised your DIL would come out to a crazy internet persons place, lol
Her DIL wants to come over more too now. Crazy internet chicken people. I think Coffee will bring her over to the dark side.
actually it was for her benefit she bought a auto part to get her truck fixed.. when i used her truck and went to Aussies to get some bales for the run me and Aussie packed the bed of truck so full we slammed it shut to shove it all in the back and we ended up breaking the handle off. And Aussie son is going to fix it... My son thinks its funny he says he understands how 2 Moms can mess something up and understands how Aussies son must feel..LOl... dang kids...
My DS said it would be better if you could wait until next week once he's done with the job from #*%^. I hadn't noticed that he had the mowers so he had mowed after the soccer game. I did get the trim painted. When DS & DIL came they had the kids with so I had to take time to jump on the trampoline with them. Then DD & SIL came home with the boys which required more jumping on the tramp, running around & throwing scratch for the chicken. The important things in life!
