Improving the grow panels
Next I needed to fix up my grow panels as they need sides. Without sides the chickens are getting to the plants and pulling them out. The smaller chickens even crawl under the wire and eat stuff. Chickens also have long necks so can get under there and reach in a long way so they need sides. I could of used wood, but steel would last longer.
I cut some rebar and welded it on a panel then cut some wire to fasten it onto the rebar. I used the hog clips to fasten the wire to the rebar. I had to cut a lot of wire to get the small strips I needed.
Planted some seed
I turned over some soil and planted some seed and put the panel back into action. I need to repair the rest of them when I get time and get some stuff growing in them.
Working on the fence gates
After a break I welded up some rebar for some fence gates for my chicken grazing pen I’m working on. Welding is hard on my back so I stopped at this point for the day and will finish them tomorrow, maybe.
Mowing grass for mulch
Late in the afternoon I gassed up my weed mower and cut my neighbors grass to get some mulch for my chickens.
I put the mulch in the new mulch pen and let the chickens at it.
With the time change it got dark early so I quit for the day.
