    Well, its been a good day here at Fat Daddy Farms. Started my day by finding the first 3 eggs from Buttercups birds! I moved them outside just about when they should have started laying, so I guess they are over their mad...

    Got my 2 hrs of mowing done early this morning.

    I separated the extra roos from the bachelor pen, then sent 5 to camp Kenmore...

    Moved the 3 week old Butlers I got from JJ, out to the shop brooder, there are no more birds in my house!!

    Then spent the rest of the day working on the latest 1\\2 pen. Its ready for birds except for the door latches. ( barrel bolts)


    I made up a little brisket rub and gave the camp Kenmore kids a good dose of it and let them sit for about 5 hrs. Then fired up the BBQ.....


    While I was cooking quail and workin on a fine box of wine, My lovely bride was make'in the fix'ins....


    Like I said, Its been a GOOD day !!! Bill

    Days like that just make it all SO worth while. Yum. Gratification in getting work done around the place, milestones met, and a pleasant tasty reward at the end. Freshly mowed with a new pen just looks good doesn't it? Makes you say AHHHHH.

    You deserved it Bill. It is a good time of year...I am having the same days over here in the mountains. [​IMG]
