I love this time of year, there is so much to see on the mountains, each day brings a different view.

We have 8 Rhode Island Red Mix hens that just a few months ago were small and babies, and now they are feathering out.

Wow! Hens are sooo much different than roosters are!

Phoenix is our rooster, and he stays in our room at night.

He is our feathered watch dog for the yard. I have to have a beware of rooster sign for him as well as the dogs...

He really enjoys coming up to me with a stink eye look when I open his pen gate, which I made with those hook things our use on a dog leash, and then the fence wire stuff. I attach it our regular fence with the hooks. It has really worked well for me, except the spaces in the fence are big enough to get bit through if I am not watchful. He is like any other "farm" animal, in that you don't turn your back on him...:)

He loves his exercise pen so much he guards it.

However they are not predator proof, so the hens stay in a redone shed at night so they will not get eaten by predators.

The weather has been beautiful. I have been repurposing old things. I am so glad that I saved all those grates from the box fans that broke all those years ago. We use them to keep cool in the summer. We don't need AC here. They break about one time every other year. So I have built up a lot of grates.

I wired the plastic grates from the fan onto the handle part of the storage tubs I have that are see through and very large.

They have served well for brooders and carriers for the hens. I knew there would be a use for them!



Blessings and I appreciate all the comments on any of my posts!
