My husband has had some days off this week and we have been finishing up some very dirty jobs. He finished shoveling out the largest of the chicken lots. Now… that had to be the dirtiest job of all!
I put straw back in the lot. My husband added the water drinker, which is very heavy when full. It also has to be level or the water continues to run out until it is empty. He used steel wedges to level the cinder block before replacing the chicken’s water source.
In the meantime, I shoveled out Lucy’s dog lot and added straw.
Lucy is aging now, and my husband built the step-up to help her poor, tired hips make it into her house.
We also cleaned out Jazz’s lot and added straw. My husband had to finish this job, because I had been weed eating in the heat and was wiped out.
Most of the time, one or the other dog is out. Jazz and Scout (the cat) get along great. But Lucy doesn’t get along with Jazz or Scout. Maybe it is her age and the fact that she owned the place before they intruded. Anyway, they are all happy when they have their days for running free.
The dirtiest jobs are finished. That is a big relief. The weekend is coming and we can relax and enjoy it!
I hope you find time to rest and relax this weekend.
Have a great weekend!
