What a pleasure to spend time in the barn… doing a little picking up (I think I picked up a million yards of red twine cut from the hay bales used to feed the cows), trouble shooting a problematic chicken watering system (it’s probably time to scrap this system and try a different method next winter), and planning for the return of all kinds of crazy over the next several months.
The first to return will be chicks that will replace our current flock of laying hens. So this month we plan to build a second chick brooder with the scrap lumber I salvaged from past projects and piled in the barn.
I’m ready to get back into the barn. I’m excited to introduce some new breeds of hens to our farm, along with their beautiful all-shades of brown eggs. And most of all I can’t wait to take the next steps putting together our little farm.
