    Well very bad morning here. My first preditor attack. Lost two frizzle pullets, one completely gone and the second , well lets just say that I did have something to bury [​IMG]

    I am trying to get out of work half a day to reinforce the back sides of my pens. It was something smaller as it pull the heavy wire out from the post near the bottom and pushed through the boards. I know it ight be back again tonight so out in the rain I go. Will need to call and wake up DH and have him put toghter the compressor we got each other for Christmas so I don't have to do a bunch of hammering.

    I have only 2 pine trees, but my friend up the road owns a tree farm (thousands of pine trees) so i go up there and fill my truck with bags of the stuff every so often, I mix pine straw and add a thin layer of shavings on top.

    Pine needles are great, I use them in all my pens. My girls love to go under the pine trees and sit, scratch, & play in the pine needles.
