They were not even happy to see me with the feed can. What is with these chickens? They were in the pen all day because of the rain forecast. I thought that was a good idea because it would make it easier to check and see how much they ate.
I guess they don't really like the organic pellets that much. They did finally break down and eat some, but they don't get all excited like they do if they know I have scratch. I'll keep locking the feed up at night.
John (Going Gently) asked if our feeder has a feed saver grill. No. No grill. I've been looking online to try and find one I can attach to the feeders we have. I think a saver grill would be a great help against the hens knocking all the feed out of the feeders. I'll have to think about the whole grill idea and maybe I can make something that would catch the feed?
I have also been thinking about wetting the organic feed and mashing it up until it is moist and kind of sticks together. Maybe the chickens might just eat it up without kicking it all over the place. I guess I'll have to try it and see what happens.
Since the weather has started getting cooler I find myself looking forward to cold wet days when I'll have to stay in the house and have free time to spend on quilting and knitting.
I've been putting off projects for too long and now I am anxious to get back to them. I brought out some fabric that a good friend of Kristine gave me along with a quilt pattern. I was sooo happy she gave me the fabric. So thoughtful! I think I am going to look for an easier pattern since I am still learning quilting as I go. I also have a quilt to make for Kristine. This next quilt will be my fourth quilt.
There are also a couple of bags in the sewing room full of yarn that are calling out to me to work on them. It's been so long since I've opened them I don't even remember what is in all the bags. Well, one thing is for sure I will have lots of things to do this winter. I even have a few closets to clear out if I get bored.
