Our first batch of chicks have been outside for a few weeks, they are getting big and looking like small hens. We have had our second batch of chicks outside in the chicken coop several times...they seem a bit intimidated by all the other chickens. Hopefully, they will all learn to play nicely together!
survivor chicken from the coyote incident back in December had
developed a blister on her foot. After doing some internet research we
decided it was bumble foot...which required surgery! We followed the
directions we found online and Ryan took care of it with several of us
as assistants. We had her isolated in the brooder in the garage for a
week to as not to spread infection to the other chickens. She is back
in the chicken coop and seems to be doing well.
grape plants have starting growing new leaves. My peas, radishes, and
beets are growing nicely that I planted back in April. Ryan got some
corn planted last weekend. Logan helped me plant some more peas, as
well as some squash, eggplant, cantaloupe, watermelon, and cucumbers.
started to keep a garden journal last summer as a way to keep track of
where I planted certain things. I have it going again this year. I
want to keep better track of when I plant things to refer to in the
future. I'm looking forward to filling in my empty spaces.
