Today I needed to get some nesting stuff ready for little chicks that should be born real soon as this one hen has been sitting on ten eggs for just about 21 days and that’s when they mostly hatch out. She may be sitting on some chicks now.
She build her nest out in the yard under a big redwood tree.
Getting things ready for the new chicks
The problem is where she built her nest isn’t safe from predators so when she hatches them out I need to move her an her little ones into the chicken pen nesting area for new chicks so I needed to get that ready to go so I worked on that.
Bleeding the bulldozer
About that time my brother Tom came by and said it’d be a good time to go up and see if we can get the bulldozer started. He ran the diesel dry and now the fuel lines need bleeding to get the air out. We’ve tried a couple times but haven’t been successful usually because the batteries have died and won’t hold a charge as they are too old.
Still no go
We need to take up a better battery and I need to read the service manual some more then we’ll give it another try.

Nice day puttering around especially since the sun was shining a bit.
