|A suet feeder stuffed with greens is a fun treat for the girls,|
who quickly peck everything out!
|Josh made this automatic feeder out of PVC, which we can fill from the outside.|
Now we only have to feed them every few days.
|He also made this automatic water system out of PVC.|
|The girls peck at little metal "nipples" to get the water to come out.|
|Our rooster is really starting to look the part!|
|"What are you doing in here??"|
|The hard rains we had yesterday flattened a couple of my corn plants|
so I threw them in for the birds to enjoy. They went to town eating the leaves.
We have been working to make the chicken coop more self-sufficient this past week. We've got the feeding part down, now it's just the door to the henhouse that needs to be automated. I'll share that with you when we get it going...
