Weeds for the hens
Learning to use the tire bars right
The board wasn’t breaking these tire beads so I tried using the tire irons and was able to break the bead in this spot using the part the board was pushing on. I just kept playing around with the bars and the tire finally came off as well as the bottom side doing the same thing.
HO ho tough one
But the second tire didn’t work out that way. It wouldn’t come off the bead no matter what I tried until I went for the spot the car tire was holding down and pounded the tire iron into that spot with the hammer and I was then able to work the tire off the rim with the tire irons.
This is the hard tire and the irons are in the sweet spot and I just broke the bead. I had to do the same thing for the other side of the tire. It was the only place I could pound the tire iron past the tire bead.
Anyway that’s the hard part of this job.
More weeds for the chickens
I went over to my brother’s vegetable patch for weeds for for all the other chickens. Lots of weeds here.
Some chair hopping around the yard finished the day.
