Chicken pen maintenance
Yesterday I thought it would be a good idea to dig up the chicken pen dirt. Doing this sorta freshens it up and gives the chickens a good place to have a dust bath.
Digging up the pen
Raspberry patch maintenance
After a good break and some chair hopping I was looking at the raspberry patch berry plants and noticed a bunch of them were turning yellow. That’s because they were done producing berries and needed to cut down.
I picked up some of the berry canes but not all and left some to pick up tomorrow, maybe.
Puttering and peeps
The rest of the day I spent chair hopping and puttering around the yard.
I puttered around the chicken coup most of the day doing little clean up things that needed done.
Feeding back the eggs
I had some extra eggs that were getting old so I boiled them up and smashed them up and added them to some barley bran and fed that to the chickens. They sure like to eat their own eggs. It works out ok as the more protein you feed them the more eggs they lay so it all works out in the end.
