I've been getting felled trees from a guy who only takes down trees that are potentially problematic.
Some I use for firewood and some are being aged to resaw for lumber projects.
Here is the last load...
This pile is a honey locust tree. The twiggy stuff goes through the chipper/shredder to make bedding in the chicken run.
Except for the hickory tree that came before. That debris was shredded for the smoker. Hickory smoked chicken in the fall.
I had 13 eggs from my mom and am down to 8. First time candling there was only one that was a blood ring, then yesterday several had it. Not sure what happened.
Like I said before, the egg crate mattress pads are great sound absorbers.
It breaks my heart too- seriously. Since it was already down, we are grateful for the firewood and for the parts that are larger, they will adorn our property in the years to come. Hoping the seeds will grow- I could not "see" the seeds, instead, we just planted the whole pinecones. Redwoods have really small pinecones- about the size of a macadamia nut. We put a dozen of them in a flower pot- and will see what grows.
Where in Kitsap are you?
Oh, I must have missed your post, sorry. Our plan right now is to build a small area in the coop that's almost completely soundproof (I say almost because the area will need ventilation). And put him in at night and take him out at a reasonable hour during the morning. Think that would work?
I could be wrong, but doesn't the cone have to open to spill the seeds b4 they can take root?
We adopted a rescued Cattle Dog mix today. Looks like he has a little greyhound and pit in him, but he is all cattle dog. Loves to herd. He ran at the chicken run and when the chickens freaked out he just went the other way, so no strong prey drive toward the chickens. He was interested in the chicks in the tractor, but was redirected easily. It wont be too hard to train him to ignore the chickens. Funny thing is his name, Rooster. He loves being with people. He even got our Aussie to come inside an hang out for a while(he doesn't like being inside).
I got the one chick hatched today, picking up a bantam Splash Laced Red Wyandotte tomorrow and the 2 SFH's and 2 CCL's when they hatch, tomorrow or Tuesday.
he's cute. he has the same build as a Australian cattle dog/pitbull mix i had years ago.
