So I am down to 9 chickens from the 14 that left the brooder alive. I thought a hawk got them so I put netting over run. Today Alexander saw Bruno with chicken in his mouth then chasing another. One he was chasing is alive but in undegrowth. Apparently they are small enough to go thru chicken netting. Then Bruno thinks they are fair game.
Snip is going thru teenage a***h0le period. I think the little girls are hitting puberty cause he is sticking his head thru fence to smell their buts. I was carrying hoe today because snakes. Snip decides to rub his head on it and then square up on me. Um, NO! So he got chased into inside pen with several wacks to chest and but. The neighbors at trailer park may think I'm crazy. Cause I was yelling at him "Keep it up and I'm going to EAT YOU!"
Tomorrow we school meetings then Friday I'm going to be bushhogging about an acre. Ugh...
It's great. I'm glad I was wearing my new snake gaiters though. I found a chunk of barbed wire in the grass. The trimmer whipped it up across my legs and wound it on the spool. Once I got the wire loose, the trimmer started back up without issues.
