Lots of pelicans on the river
Seemed like a good day to go kayaking so I headed down to Jenner after I checked on the chickens.
There was some fog down there looking down towards the mouth area, so I headed on up the river to avoid it.
Run into Patti
I was cruising up the side when two kayaks approached. It turned out to be Patti with a friend. I hadn’t seen her down this way for quite some time so I forgot her name which is common for me in my older age.
I noticed a few of my buddy birds on the shoreline. I call them buddy birds as sometimes they come right up to my boat on the shoreline and sit under the side of it when I’m sitting by the shoreline. Usually there’s a big flock of them but today there were only four of them.
I made it to the boat ramp and went on home for the day.
After a nap I went outside and puttered around doing chicken chores. I moved some more wood chip mulch to the chicken’s mulch area and gave them water and some feed.
I also studied the old smoker to see what I needed to do to get it going. I need to modify the base for it so I’m just figuring out how to do it the easiest.
Need some more chicks
I also called Western Farm about getting some more chicks. I wanted to know what they had in stock. They have quite a few varieties of chicks right now so I had to do some research to see what I might want. I’m still not sure which to get but I’ll get something. I was thinking of getting about 6 more, but the more I think on it I might as well get about a dozen of them as it’s just as easy as 6.
I’ll have to keep the new chicks in a separate pen until they get big enough to merge with the other ones I already have. I hear sometimes it’s rather difficult to merge them as the larger chickens may not accept the new birds and try to kill them so I might have to work on that a bit, but it’ll be awhile before I’ll have to do that.
That was my day for another good one.
