    It never fails. As soon as the warranty runs out they start to fall to pieces.

    Feathers everywhere lately. Must be Fall!

    Warranty expired, lol. Same scene here, looks like a feather pillow factory exploded!


    On a more serious side note, how do you keep the ground cleared like that? I know it's shady, but I have shade and vines are growing like a jungle. The chickens won't touch them. [​IMG]

    I'm on the sand ridge so the ground is pretty poor under those trees which is why I'm running the tractors through there. We're also slipping into a drought so nothing much is growing right now.

    I couldn't get it to show very well in a photo but I have another tractor where it looks like they've had a pillow fight every morning when I go out at dawn.

    My daughter's going to have lots of feathers for her quill pen project this year.

    I thought I was mostly done with the moulting this Fall. NOPE.... this morning it looked like I lost a hen [​IMG] She just started blowing all her feathers over night. I had to do a head count twice!! There were so many feathers all in one place like she shook and a they all fell out. [​IMG] Poor girl I hope they grow back before the rains start.

    It's that time of year again. Looks like a coon got into my rooster pen there are so many white feathers all over the place.

    I actually believed that one of my chickens had been killed by a predator! So many feathers! [​IMG]

    I'm inundated with feathers too... and some non-egg layers that I think are molting without losing many... [​IMG]
