Once I got it going today I got the pipe parts I bought yesterday and some tools and loaded them in my Toyota to take up into the hills to help my neighbor hook up his spring.
Hooking it up
We worked on hooking that up for about two hours, not really working that hard. I showed him how to measure how much water he was getting and we measured it. There was 2 gallons a minute which was good. He thanked me for helping him out and I headed for home.
Checking our water supply
8640 gallons a day
Back home I needed a break and a nap.
After getting something to eat I went out to check on the new chicks to see how they were doing. I’ve given them the run of the chicken pens and they rip around like little speed demons. They seemed to be doing well and enjoying themselves.
As always I spent a good deal of the day chair hopping around the yard sampling berries and plums. I have more than I can eat right now and a lot of the fruit the chickens will get.
Another peep check
When I checked on the ten newest chicks to see if they were in their box they weren’t. They should be in their box on the right. After dark I’ll move them into that box if they haven’t figured it out yet.
They are likely ok just about anywhere they want to spend the night but it’d be warmer in the box.
