Yesterday was all about making the partridge chickens yard larger, more long term adjusted and a real home. When we built it last year we isolated the old milk room and built the yard fence for a more temporary use. It was just a passing through out to the real life, but after seeing how others has made real homes and found that our chickens tried to return to that yard all the time, we decided that this will be their home all year around.
So we are making the yard three times as large, wind shielding, 🦊 safe and electric ⚡️ fences as well. The fox stop is composting nets on the ground under the walls. That has worked super at our little yard at home. We will either have to build that one larger as well or move the chickens (if they hatch) later. I guess having 5 partridge in the garden can be quite useful. I'd like to have two rabbits 🐰 as well just as distractions while training.
As we do not have any quail at the moment and Iza just retrieved them all the time, they became quite pointless. They just flew once or if we were lucky, twice and then they became a retrieve instead of anything else. And as our daughter Leontine is extremely allergic to eggs we can't eat the eggs either, and quail are productive!
I'll try to get some pictures of the new yard when it's finally finished.
We did some water work yesterday to! And Becca did Retriever jumps into the water 💦 So happy to see her start to love the water! Iza is more of an utter 😆 but the retrieving has to be more complicated now to get her tagged. Ebba found the dummies way to wet far out and decided to take a walk along the lake, which made her walk and then swimming three times as far out and just happened to come across them and picked them up on the way back 🙈😆
Avoiding work can be a great way to get the job done 🤣
Well all of us write here, both humans and dogs ;) At least that was the plan but it seems it´s mostly me Robyn who´s attached to the keyboard...
