Digging Up Blackberry Vines and Yard Work and Missing Chicks

Sunday May 26, 2019 Guerneville CA.

Overcast but nice out

I let the chickens out early to graze in the yard today.chickens

 

My lone poppy is still looking good as I walked by it headed to do some berry vine removal.poppy

 

Digging out berry vines in this area

There’s a bunch of blackberry vines coming up in this area so I got my shovel and preceded to dig them up.grass

 

Lots of dug up blackberry vines in this photo.vines

 

I put the water sprinkler on the weeds to help them grow some more.

Some rework

It rained pretty hard last week and caved some of the dirt in where I was working to get it out with all the cement blocks. Some of them fell back into the hole so I worked on getting them back out.blocks

 

The dirt was still too wet to work so that can wait until it dries out a bit.

Light rain

It was time for a nap so I went in the house for one and it started to rain while I was cutting z’s. It didn’t rain hard or for very long so when I went back outside it had mostly stopped.

Hauling brush

I puttered around and picked up some of the brush I cut yesterday but not all of it. The chickens moved right in after I picked up the brush in this spot.scatrching

 

Where’s the chicks

When the chickens went to roost tonight I checked on the new chicks and found three of them missing. I looked all around but saw no sign of them dead or alive.

Jail for the chicks

I’m thinking I’ve been letting them run around too much for their age so I will have to fence them in until they get larger or I might lose them all.

I have no idea where they might have gone to as there is absolutely no sign of them which sorta indicates some thing likely dragged them off and ate them.

Nice day.

    You are the only person I know who waters their weeds! haha
    Sad about the missing peeps, maybe they wandered too far and got lost. Trying to think of a better ending. LOL

    Hmm predators hitting on the baby chicks, think best you let them get bigger before letting them loose.
