Manu slept the night in his little tin house. He had two bales of dry golden straw in there and has made himself a big warm bed.
This is a rather awkward image but if you look carefully you will see that Manu has a little cat out there in the field. It wandered in under the electric fence and began to share his bowl for a moment.
Molly – up to her usual welcoming tricks. This breed are such jumpers.
Again with this chook. She loves to sit with this tree. In a flock there are always a few who do not fit in. They stay on the perimeters of the group. Safe from the bullying.
The ducks are still winning as the most efficient producers of income on the property. Since I fixed their gate and make sure to wait until at least 7.30 before releasing them I routinely collect fifteen eggs a day. The eggs sell for 50 cents each. Their feed costs a maximum of $8 a week.
If they keep laying right through winter as advertised then they will make a significant contribution.
I need to put ‘Drive Slowly’ signs up as they are a bit of a menace in traffic. They think that the vehicle is herding them and slowly waddle in front of the trucks as they drive into the yard.
Both little herds of cows have a new bale of hay each. So, happy silent munching reigns for a while now.
And we are all set up for another week.
And ahead of the incoming weather which is looking wintry for a day or so. I will be closing up the North doors against this wind they are forecasting.
Oh, and ‘feedback’? I don’t think I get enough. I think working alone makes improvement difficult. So don’t be shy. I need to learn to seek and accept criticism and direction better. So I can do better.
I hope you have a good day.
