A day spent in town. It’s been quite a while since I’ve been, I’ve just had people grab me some bread and milk on occasion, and I’ve left many things off many lists… and today I (literally) paid for it.
There was no choice, I needed chick starter since baby chicks will arrive Monday morning!!!! EEEEEK. I am not ready, so tomorrow will be a day of carpentry and lifting and moving.
I am getting 25 chicks… the minimum order. As of right now, they will go in my coop so it’s my older hens that I need to find a place for. I’m still going to keep the old girls, the new ones, of course, won’t be big enough to lay for 4 or 5 months. You can’t keep chicks and hens together, the hens would peck them to death.
I’m going to fix up something with my chicken tractor for my hens at night. They can still free range during the day, but they need somewhere safe to roost. Either that or they need something inside a dog kennel…
I guess I will see where my imagination takes me tomorrow!
Today’s scenery… a storm cloud north of Ten Sleep… with a faint rainbow to the right of center.
