Peeps are growing fast
I left the coop chicken door open last night so the chicks where already out in the run today when I got it going. They were running around feeding away.
Seems they found their new bedding material
Checked the van’s engine fluids
I worked some more prepping my van, checking the oil and water in the engine but forgot to check the tire pressures maybe I’ll get to that tomorrow.
I need a dill patch for pickles
I wanted to plant some dill seeds and I had a spot that gets water from the enclosure sprinkler, but in order to plant where I wanted to I first had to bury the six inches of wire that goes underground on that side of the enclosure. I have the ditch dug here and now need to bury the wire.
Shovel means worms to the chicks
All buried. The chicks saw the shovel and wanted worms, but there were none in this spot yet, so I’ll have to make it nicer for the worms with some mulch. You can see the little peeps on the other side of the wire peeping away, but no worms.
The ground needed tilling for planting
Sprinkler in action
I spent most of the rest of the day puttering around the yard. I did plant some more tomato plants from my brother mostly for chicken feed later. I planted them here and there in the enclosures as I heard the chickens don’t like to eat the plants, so we’ll see if that is true.
That’s it for another nice day.
