Improving the Fences

Hi there, well i started off today, by checking through all my comments (1), so took all of 2 seconds, but hey it’s a start, check out a few other sites, to see what’s what, and then went out side to repair fences.

All a little too late, again the daily round up begins, Gloria, Nellie, and Daisy all missing, admittedly in found two of them quite quickly, but Daisy is still hiding. As some of know, i’m new to both chicken keeping, and blogging, but on the first note,  Has Dasiy gone broody?  Is this the sign that she is sitting somewhere on a clutch of eggs, it’s hard to tell but i don’t think i’ve had a egg from her in days, as Nancy is now laying, i’m still getting 4 eggs daily, but now i’ve lost track of daisy nesting spot.

More bamboo, will be needing to shore up the fences, i suppose a bit like dam building, you block up one area that obvious, then you notice there are three new holes, of course as i block 1 exit that they use, they find another, Nellie is the high jumper, i think with a few flaps of the wings she getting 4ft, any higher she’ll get a nose bleed ( beak bleed), the trouble is as i block more paths from the rear of the property, to the front, i also get blocked from using that path, get to think of ways of making gates from bamboo.

I realise how easy it is to get sucked into the pc too, i come in to check how things are going a find myself still here hours later, looking at more chicken sites, and others blogs in general. I must work out a schedule of works, order my time better.

As it turns out, Daisy miraculously appeared out from behind a bush, i searched the area no nest,  but it’s Daphne who is now missing, by the way i don’t have a huge farm, just my back garden, 1/4 acre, i give up, i’m sure she’ll be back around feeding time.

back to the fences.


Slowly getting the hang of blogging, i think.

I did say slowly, it takes a while when you get in your forth decade on the planet, they are a bit like one of those, virtual pet games, if you don’t feed them they die.

I’ve been exploring the site a bit more and experimenting, you can always undo things, does take time through trial and error, mostly error if i’m honest about it.

Well i hope you are enjoying the new look, and i will get back to the contents, but you know what people say about first impressions,  so if the site looks shabby people won’t stop to read, thanks to those that have so far, and a special thanks to the fellow kiwi who left a comment today, my first, even if it was a bit ruthless.
