What I wear hanging with the BIRDS--

I don't know about the rest of the world but if I had webbed feet I'd qualify as a DUCK. The rain has been none stop for weeks and it's not letting up anytime soon. So here in OH we have homes flooding and land being washed out. I will count myself lucky then that the only damage I have to contend with is wasted feed and a few heavy items tipped or strewn with the wind.  I've been putting off winterizing my rabbit hutches and just couldn't wait any longer. Hence bales of straw had to lugged to the back hutches esp. where the new babies bunnies are. Once that was done I wrap the open wire areas with two sheets of plastic to keep out the winter cold & wind. So with the bunnies newly crammed with straw hutches & the plastic windows...not to mention the heated water bottles and a few extra veggies treats; they should be set for the first snow fall.

Then it was on to the chicken coop pen where I keep my compost bins. The bins themselves were toppled over and so was my old hutch for rabbits that is currently a brooder in the spring for new hatch lings. The feed was washed out and the fenced in pen is a muddy wasteland.
I do a deep layer method in the winter for my chickens,ducks,turkey. Adding wood chips and straw layers inside the coop along with a few heat lamps to help out the non cold tolerant chicken breeds I have. My flock is a mix of 24 variety chicken breeds from fancy, bantam,rare breeds.

This is what I wear on a standard morning (early) to take care of my mini farm.

  1. So when I read the title of your post I thought you meant what you wore when you hung out with "the birds" as in "women" or whatever, but nope-- pretty literal there! hahaha. I think it's soooo cool that you have a mini farm!
