|sleepy eyes, elvis, and mother superior up on my sauna roof!|
Last night, it was Amrie and I against the three hens, and they won, but we got a good workout from chasing them. I built some new perches in their pen, and lined their nesting boxes with straw, adding 3 golf balls because my dad collects them and I could never shoot all of the balls in this life, but anyway, I am trying to use the visual stimuli of the golf balls to hypnotize the chickens into laying, or just do whatever it takes to get these yardbirds producing some eggs for the family. Gotta make it through the winter, you know?
