Done with Dirty Birdies! :weee :weee :weee :weee

No more Cornish Cross to feed, water and daily move their chicken tractor. Poor little black sex links that I brooded with the Dirty Birdies, I told them that now they don't have to share with their fat cousins any more.

We raised and processed 73 Cornish Cross chickens. Sold 45, got the rest stuffed in the freezer. I had lots of breast bones to simmer for broth, but I sent DH out to the Pig Palace with them. Pigs loves them some chicken! Not a scrap left! I was tired of dadburned chicken! Got 21 quarts of chicken scraps canned for the dogs, plus simmered a big pot for them today.

DONE WITH DIRTY BIRDIES!!!!!

Wow! Congratulations!!! I’m impressed at what you’ve done. Now, time for a nap!

Great job @Baymule, that's a lot of birds to process.
Need to get chores, then out to do the weeding and clean those rabbit cages. Get those 4H projects done. DD1 had a good 4H HP practice last night. IMG_6688.JPG
Tonight is the last Tractor driving practice. And dd2 will get to go again to VBS with some friends.

@Baymule our elders are looking very fruitful here, also. So long as we get occasional rain for next couple months. We have blooms and set berries around here. Yesterday I went by my farm patches and was thrilled with quantity! Then other locations are just as full. I actually drank some of my juice last night, iced and diluted. Was good.

Wild blackberry patches are starting to get pickable ripe. :clap will make jelly/jam.

My friend says the fig trees are over full this year, too. My dehydrator is ready. Guess it's a fruit year! Want blueberries...waiting on u-pick nearby...love those.

Sunny and nice today...plus I'm home! Farm work day. :love

Coffee and scrambled eggs for breakfast. Also toast with wild plum jam.
This morning we will be working outside, doing more clean up. Still some pine limbs on the ground from a lightning struck tree that we had taken down. It was right at the fence/gate and falling distance to the carport. I got my battery charged on my chainsaw so I can cut them up to manageable lengths. Have some towering pole plants to chop and pile on the burn pile and other assorted stuff. DH will do a little more mowing with push weed eater to knock down the big weeds that the sheep won’t eat.

Neighbor Robert got the tractor yesterday evening to drag pine logs to his sawmill. And he hitched up the bush hog to mow our back pasture! Thanks Robert!

Busy morning. Then the heat will drive us inside around noon. Even the sheep run back in their barn in the heat of the day.

Thanks @Baymule
Got everything done. Weeding, rabbit cages, made tie dye shirts for the kids for dd2's 4H project and got to the tractor driving practice. Last one for this year. IMG_6699.JPGHad some inquiries on some bunnies. Need to sell some. Had 2 does due yesterday, but nothing. It's ok we've plenty at this point. Just over 2 weeks of crazy busyness of 4H, 3 week of SB and on to other summer things after that so not sure it'll slow down much.
Praying for rain, our hay fields look pretty pitiful.

Rain...what happened to a couple nicer rains a week? Seems it has become three weeks without and two with....is my CRS in the way? Was it never normal? Am I dreaming? Well, I could use some rain, too. Ran a lot of water washing off my tractor yesterday and it soaked in so fast I was amazed! Yep, rain dance again. Things aren't at wilt stage but, could be in a few days with the heat.

Heat -- WOW for those temps out west and even NW.....way bad. As bad as the snow and cold. In reverse. If no one believes in climate change, think about these extremes.

@Baymule have a good farm day! I did one yesterday and can feel it today....sore like you never use half those muscles. :old 😁. But me and my tractor did good!! Fixed a fence a limb had shortened and goaties jumped...no more! Walked the herd to a pasture with a LOT of gumball trees wanting to grow....eat before I mow. Buffet time. :clap

Today small jobs in several stores, then off 3 days. :weee

Looking at the "I want a garden" area that's seriously becoming a pasture again!! Maybe I just need to disc every field I have because the grass is unreal. :th:idunno:he. Not sure I can win this one. Haven't given up but it's crossed my mind. Then I'd have to start over 🤔 :oops::he:caf. No wonder people just buy stuff. 😶

Work for pay, today. Will see how I feel about it Friday. 👍😋
