Rooster Reminder

Although I didn't expect to feed the hens today, I gave them some nice food around 4:00 and it was a good assortment of three different types of food. We have several locations we feed them into keep things interesting so I fed them at the northernmost elevated...

OOPS. I didn’t notice it rained

OOPS. I didn’t notice it rained

Shortly after I fed the chickens on the rooster this morning it rained so their food kind of turned to mush. That makes them extra hungry at lunch time and I'm feeding them up on the porch under the roof right in my way. However, I did get my stick back so I feel like...

8am. I let the dogs out. Oof oof

They don't seem to like waking up when I ask them at 7:00 a.m., but they let me know what 8:00 a.m. it's time to pee. It's a nice chill September morning so I come outside with them. The chickens have eaten and are down the yard so I don't feel like I need my defense...

Attack Thwarted

One of the dogs was my hero. At least in his mind when he went after the rooster for attacking me. The rooster didn't have a chance and didn't make contact but my reaction was always being startled and that generally means loud and that plays to the dog like I'm in...

Best laid plans vs Chicken logic

Best laid plans vs Chicken logic

When I can out the door for the afternoon feed, the weak chickens that linger in different circles are always first to detect me, and the waddle towards me. Over the past couple of days I've tried to death feed them their own portion before the rooster and his harem...

Mojo and Me

Mojo and Me

I learned the name of the rooster's mojo but I prefer calling it the rooster anyway because calling it by its name implies some form of relationship. I suppose in a way we do have an adversarial relationship he wants to attack me and I want to avoid being attacked. He...

The Monday before I have to pay attention again.

The Monday before I have to pay attention again.

I'm feeling more stressed than I need to be,but that doesn't really help. Then again, my stress has always been pretty mild. Since I go with the flow about everything, worrying about the future is a useless pastime. He starts a job tomorrow that will take him out of...
