|If you look closely into the dark hole you will see the wall|
that was obstructing my mower. I added a couple of new
2x4s to stiffen the top and ripped out the wall.
|Almost completed door. It is hung and the latch cutout is made|
so the door will stay shut. I just need to install a stop on the
non-hinge side, a door handle and the slide locking hinge.
I of course need to still cleanup. I carried down a few too many 2x4s from the chicken house (wood storage area) (vs the chicken coop which is near the house).
We had one of the ewes we picked up in November give birth. I only know this because I saw afterbirth hanging out of her this morning. I went out but could not find the lamb and of course it frosted. She is only about 10 months old. Our other pair of young ewes miscarried their first lambs also. We are not sure if it is a size thing or because they ate some pine needles and blue spruce needles. It is a consequence of running the sheep with the ram all year around. So Annmarie was right and I need to lock the sheep up every night, even if it is only in the barn lot. This will make a whole lot less ground to cover if there are any baby questions.
I had to throw the baby chicks out into their grassy yard today. They just did not want to leave the coop, but they are getting too big for that space and are starting to peck bald spots on each other. At first they just hunkered down and did not move around, but after a couple of hours they started roaming the grass and having a good time. Of course only two of them could figure out how to get back into the coop. Which meant I had to catch each one and put them back in the coop for tonight. It froze this morning, so I don't want to leave them out yet.
