Here's some pictures of the mulch and the pens after I'd gotten some of it down. I still have about half of the pile in the first picture left to put down in the barn and the pens there. They are supposed to be dropping off one other truckload too. :)

Those are pretty nice sizeable pens.
I love the cockerel in the fourth photo down. Is he a Cochin? I can't see if they all have floofy feet or not - pretty sure they do.

Thanks. I try to give them lots of space.

Those are Bantam Lemon-blue Cochins. There are some young Seramas in there and a couple of white guineas too.

Apparently we may get freezing weather next week so I guess I'll be moving all the Seramas indoors. Thankfully the Orpingtons don't need babying in the winter, so they'll be fine outside. It's that weird time of the year where it's too dark to feed in the morning before work and it doesn't stay light long enough once you get home from work. I was out feeding and watering past eight yesterday. I'm very tired at work this morning.

Thank you for asking. I've had a ton of stuff going on. I was without a job for a little over a month and just started a new one yesterday and am taking a quick break from training so I don't fall asleep at the keyboard. lol
That is a lot! I'm sure it was quite scary to be job hunting in this Covid situation. My husband & I went through this in Feb-April. For over 20 years we had a computer consulting business but not earning enough and the shut down of all state businesses was the final nail in the coffin. My husband eventually found a good tech job, but it took a while. I know he misses the work, but I'm so thankful for a steady paycheck in these uncertain times.

I'm happy you were able to not only make a profit but reduce the number of beaks to feed. Every little bit helps.
