Ugh. My chickens are having a crowding crisis, so I spent much of the day re-roofing the big aviary coop so that I could finally move the youngsters in there. It took several more hours than I had planned, and ended up being rather complicated. But it worked, and shortly before sundown I managed to move about 30 little pullets out there. There are still a bunch more to move... It's time so separate the pullets and cockerels, so I'll be working on that all through the week. I'm going to auction again next Sunday, so that will help too!
Shylah wore her bit for 4 hours today (tied in the corral) so we'll see if that helps, I'll do that every day. I need to ride EVERY day now, I'm supposed to be taking her trail riding on Saturday, and then spending a week up north with her in mid August. I'm all worried that she's not ready, but I guess the best thing to do is just get her out there and go for it!
It's official... I'M GOING TO INDIANA FOR THE BIG SHOW!!!! :-) No birds, just me. Woo hoo! I'm excited, I didn't think I was going to be able to pull this off. Thank you to everyone who bought eggs, I have put that money to good use. :-)
