We are just coming off a long weekend. Proeun has to request days off far in advance and our intention was to get alot of work done, then it rained all week. So as life goes we are repriortizing and replanning. One task that we had scheduled was finishing the chicken tractor (mobile chicken house) in the field. Our chickens haven’t been out much yet and they were so ready. But we got rained out and one storm blew the roof off the tractor, more replanning. So now the chickens are free ranging in the woods around their winter home. We will eventually move them to the field as we also wanted their fertilizer but it is really fun to watch them roaming around the woods. We our having to train our black lab puppy that though these are birds they are not to be hunted or played with, even when they run. We’ll get, there, I know we will. I do love the entertainment of watching them though.
The first night we went out to close them in and ended up having to chase them in. The next night we waited until almost dark and they had gone in by themselves–way easier and so much fun.
