I cleaned out the henspa yesterday.
Can you see my little watchers? There are two of them.
I raked, shoveled, and swept the bedding into the henyard. I normally would have trucked it over to the
compost heap... but not now.
The flooring in this building is lined with stall mats. I had to scrape it. It was ....not fun.
This little guy kept me company for over two hours.
So did this big girl.
Then I went across to the old henhouse.... and scraped up the mess from keeping the ducks in
for three weeks this winter. As you can see, it was composting already... dry on top, wet on the bottom.
And this DID get carted across the yard, load after load, to build more compost.
While three of the four birds left went out into the jungle that has become the little henyard to get some sun.
We have had clouds for five days... with just a few short hours of sun yesterday.
I found them in the pen I used for juveniles the past two years. Roosters One and Two, little Black Tail the hen... Rooster Three was up in the rafters watching me clean.
The iris shows blooms on.
Isn't Spring wondrous?
And now, my friends... I want to thank all of you who have commented on this blog this last few years... all of you who have read it regularly... and those of you who have given me so much advice, especially last year with the baby goats... Donna, Alica, The JR, Michelle, and Michaele... Teresa, and last but not least... Georgie and Deb, who always are there for me. These are not the only ones who have helped me so much, but all of you... I have learned so much from your blogs and your advice, and I appreciated it so much.
I am going to take a hiatus for a while... I am still moving things from old to new, and
am very tired. It has become too hard to try to keep up with everything, so I am
just going to get done what I can.
I'll read your blogs as I can, and I ask for your patience with me.
Thanks to everyone so much!
