Hello Summer

We’ve had a pleasant spring, but it looks like our normal May temperatures have arrived. By Sunday it’s expected to reach 107, and then the real heat comes by the middle of June!

My ladies are ready, there’s plenty of shade in their new housing, and they’ll have the option to free run all day. I’ve let a creosote bush grow big and bushy all year just so they’ll have shade.  A hose on a slow drip beneath it will also give them a place to cool off… and a place to keep them busy looking for worms.

These girls have there own covered play area to hang out in, but of course they insist on being in my space. This is the feed room, and where I raise young pullets. It’s supposed to be the clean area… oh well, guess not anymore.
