Broody Hen Breaker

If you're raising chicks, a broody hen is a blessing. On the other hand, if all you want is eggs to eat, a broody hen is a bother and nuisance. I use an old rabbit hutch nestled behind a metal shed, in the shade, out of sight.

One over-night. I let her out the next morning and had to run her off the nest twice in the morning. From then on, she's another one of the girls. Out and about all day.

I posted a video on YouTube about it.   Broody Hen

50 Years!

I lost Jacob, my 36 year old son, Monday. Died in his sleep. Cause undetermined at this time. I'm crushed. He should've had another 50 years with us. Life is unpredictable and harsh.

See ya later, Jacket.

Moving and Planting Day

The banties transferred over to the big girl side of the pens and I closed them off. Everybody was inside the big coop, last night, except Chatty. I saw her sleeping on the porch. She's safe enough, I reckon, and will eventually go inside. Perhaps, this move will break her broodiness.

Made a few smaller beds around the yard instead of the one larger one. Squash and cucumbers are in the ground. Still have more but, uncertain where to till has me on hold. The larger area will be for tomatoes and the banty pen will be made into a greenhouse this fall.

Pallet Wood Table Complete

Starting this table in the winter was the wrong time of year. But, it's finally finished. I added the design as a surprise. Anybody know where it's from?

Kitchen Doo-dads and a Fence

Finally go around to installing the Christmas gifts I made. 

Same as above pic

...with privacy fence prices at $35 a section (Lowe's) I decided to utilize pallets for my last side of fence. These still need to be filled in but, I'm liking it.
