Well thanks to the rise in costs of everything. It's back to work for me. I know I'm whining. Time to pay off all those extra bills.(so I can stay home again with my chicks) Hate to leave my chickens and others alone for a total of 12 hours a day.(and no overtime) Haven't lost any to preditors yet.(except 2 guineas to my sons dog) Here's hoping that don't change anytime soon. chickens are in a run. Geese and ducks aren't. they have the front pasture that isn't real dog proof. Couldn't lock up ducks if I tried. 54 of the little buggers and BOY can they fly! Wish me luck.
