Mucking the Main Pen Roost and Putting Up Wind Guards
Friday November 29, 2019 Guerneville CA.
Warming in the sun
Once I got it going today I went outside where it was a bit chilly out. I sat in the sun until I warmed up a bit.
Mucking out the main pen
After taking care of the chickens needs I got the wheelbarrow out and a shovel and got things into place to muck out the main chicken roost.
I set up here in the pen to shovel this stuff out under the roost. Poo mostly in woodchips.
I filled up the wheelbarrow and hauled it to the mulch pile area and dumped it.
Loaded and ready to haul out
Here I just got the wheelbarrow loaded with muck.
Pepper wood leaves
After dumping the wheelbarrow I loaded it up with pepper wood leaves from the front driveway which needs cleaning up anyway.
I put a good helping of the leaves under the roost and the rest I scattered around the pen.
The bright colored leaves sure change the way the pen looks.
After that I did a lot of chair hopping and puttering around in the yard.
Wind breakers for the younger birds roost
I also got both plastic panels up in the younger birds roost so they will be a bit warmer this winter and maybe stay a bit dryer in a rain storm.
I had to rob one of the plastic panels I was using as a gate in another spot so I cut some wire out for the gate and took the panel and installed it and the new wire gate got put in place too.
That was my day pretty much . Nice day puttering around in the yard.
