THE NEW CHICKS ARE OUTSIDE
Really slow on Point Pleasant Road this week, Lots of rain can slow thing down.Lawn mowing is next on the list to do this spring. The new chick are in there new home. I made a Chicken tractor out of a work bench that my brother in-law gave me. I don’t think that’s what he had in mine but I think it’s going to work out great. When the weather gets better I will move it outside, The wheels let you move it around the yard so the ground stays fresh under the chicken as they scratch the ground. We also have some younger chicks coming along really fast. Only 3 weeks apart so I think they can be together at some point in time.
The Blue birds have arrived, and they are fighting with the sparrows for the box's, I think that they will win out. I made some new box's so they can have more space.. The Martin’s have also arrived and are fighting for nest spots, Dad and I have two large Martin box’s so they have lots of room.
