Running The Fence
by Callie on Monday, October 12, 2009
Today, Morgan, was running back and forth about a 100 feet of the side fence line (right side in photo) and barking her "there is a coyote over there" bark. The property on the other side of the fence is sold, but it has never been developed by the owner. So, it is densely wooded and has lots of undergrowth right up to the fence and this is one of the directions that stray dogs, coyotes, and other critters try to come on our property and snag a chicken dinner. The property on the other side of the back fence is a very good neighbor. They are the ones with a rooster that my girls like to sing to.Here are three of our four Golden Lace Wyandottes. I just happened to get a photo of the three and thought that the differences in their color and patterning was interesting. The fourth one was doing time in a nest box. I would like to get a photo of the four of them and compare their feathering. Wyandottes are neat chickens. They have adapted very well to free range.
I put on more joint compound, sanded stuff in the kitchen and got things outside undercover that shouldn't get wet. The chicken feed is back in the coop.
[3 eggs today]
Storm is moving in - rain tomorrow
