As if taking care of the boys and girls wasn't enough, it's taking care of what they live in, too. Sometimes it feels like I'm always having to fix something--if it's not the roof of a shelter, then it's fixing the netting or a hole in the wire.... I have to replace the main support pole on my big pen. The pole holds up wire that supports the netting over my pen. This is going to be a big pain. I've got to move the wires, pull out the old pole (that part will be easy since it's broken at the ground), put the new pole in, reattach the wires at the top and the edges of the pen, then reset the netting--after removing all the leaves--on them. After that, I have to make sure there are no holes in the netting. THEN, I get to scrape all the poop off the top of the shelter so the girls can have a clean place to roost again. Once that is done, I have to repair all the damage my turkeys have done to the wiring around the top rails of two other pens. I'm gonna use the hubby's air stapler for that. Hammer and staples suck. On to moving the chick nursery pen...I have to find a new location in the yard, set it up, separate out the older birds to their proper pens, which throws everyone into an uproar for a few days. Next project: setting the posts for three sides of a turkey pen, fencing it, netting it. Building new shelters. Somewhere along the line, pull all the old wire off a cage frame and replace it all properly. The original owners did not know what they were doing. After all this, something else is going to need attention. Somewhere in between all this, I must take care of my house to some degree, the yard, and work here. Good thing my kids are teens...they and the hubby can fend for themselves!
