Dirt bike ride
After getting it going today and taking care of the chicken’s feeding I went out in the yard and did some chair hopping. I could hear some noise up in the hills where the forest fire was.
So with nothing better to do I hopped on the dirt bike to go up and see what’s been going on up there in the last couple of days.
Whatever was up there must have gone as I didn’t find any machines up there. I rode on down this fire trail road. A water truck had been by as there was some water on the road. The water truck guy is watering the road and driving up and down on it to pack it in which is making the road pretty good.
This is the Guerneville overlook which looks down on the town of Guerneville. There’s still some smoke in the sky. The wind came up in the afternoon and may have blown the smoke away as it cleared up at my house.
Expanding the roost area
Another dirt bike ride
But as I was getting started I heard my brother Barry ride into the yard on his dirt bike so I joined him for another dirt bike ride up in the hills.
After that I needed a good nap.
When I rode by our water tanks earlier I noted they were full of water almost to the top so I put a sprinkler on in the yard to water some cherry trees and get the weeds to grow for the chickens to eat.
More light means more eggs
The light is to make the daylight longer to improve the number of eggs I get as this time of year they go into molt and my egg production goes way down and light is supposed to improve the number of eggs by making the daylight longer. It does seem to work as I went from 5 eggs a day to 8 or even more on some days.
That was it for an enjoyable and a productive day.
