So we didn't get the netting over the top of the baby chick run yet, but we did let them out today. Here's the first intrepid explorer heading down the ramp.
Hopefully they will figure out how to get back in before it's too dark to round them up. We'll need to get the netting over it soon, not only because they will be able to fly out someday, but to keep them safe from kitties and the ever present buzzards, ravens, hawks & eagles.
Now back to canning....our neighbor brought a crate of corn this weekend, and I tried canning it. A lot of work, but good experience. Now it's a little more applesauce and starting on tomatoes (going to be a doozy of a harvest by the looks of it). Anyone wanting to donate an Excalibur model 2900 dehydrator??
