So Paul is hard at work on building a second chicken tractor. Even though these chicks are destined for the dinner table, we want them to be comfortable and happy during the short time they are with us. As they get larger, we don't want them to feel overcrowded. We also move the chicken tractor daily, so that they always have fresh grass and bugs for munching.
Our teenagers are growing up. We did get a rooster out of the bunch. This is good since we...uh...ate our last rooster. He had gotten aggressive (he was always coming after me anytime I walked anywhere in the yard) and one day he charged Pierce. So that was the end of the rooster. Hopefully our new guy on the block won't be coming after any people -
What's this? This, is Reid chasing chickens around the bush. Our four teenagers love this bush for cover.
Foiled again, Reid. The chicken you seek is already on the other side!
Now I have some shocking news. I'll be taking this weekend off from blogging. I haven't taken a day off since I started blogging over a year and a half ago (other than the day Blogger was down this past spring). Now that Pierce is in school and I don't see him quite as much, I want to make sure I spend as much time with him as possible on the weekends. Plus, with the hurricane coming through, my internet connection (which is through a MIFI card) is likely to be spotty at best. I'll still blog on the weekends at times, and I hope to at least pop in on some of my favorite blogs, but I'm going to tone it down and I'll look forward to seeing you all on Mondays! Have a great weekend!
