Critter Proofing, Trimming and Eating Mulberries and Taking Care Of Chickens

More critter proofing the chicken pens

I dug out some more dirt to put some more critter proofing in more gates today.

Here’s one of them with the wire in and ready to put some dirt back in the ditch.gate


For critters and chickens too

They’re not just to keep the critters from digging in, but also to keep the chickens from making holes under there from their diggings and scratching’s in the dirt as they do a lot of that always looking for something to eat.

Chickens don’t like it

I penned the chickens in their pen so I could do the work and they weren’t too happy with that as they like to get into the dirt as I shovel it. This was the fourth gate I installed the wire in the ground today.gate2


Finally got the cabinet door back in

I installed the cabinet door that I glued together the other day back in the van and tidied that up a bit as I need to use the van to get some more project materials soon. That was an easy job.

Trimming the mulberry tree

I also put the ladder up into my mulberry tree and trimmed out some of the small branches so the berries would be easier to pick. The branches were so close together that it was hard to get my arm through the branches to pick the berries. I think it’ll be much easier now.  There’s only a few berries left on the tree as most of them are done, but I did find some to eat.

Pulled some weeds

I pulled some weeds from my brother’s garden and let the chickens back in this run to eat them. They are happy when they are eating something new, it doesn’t matter much what.chickens


Taking it easy

I puttered around most of the day. I did go over to my brother’s garden and ate a few of his carrots which were pretty good and I did some watering and did a lot of taking it easy.

Nice day.
