Saturday I had a poultry show. It was a poultry club function so the club went together. We were up at 3:30am to get birds packed and in the truck and get chores done before we left. At the show all my birds placed but I was most proud of my waterfowl and my Australorps. My Rouin hen (who is an older bird and older birds normally don't do well) and one of my East Indi call ducks took top honors and I brought home a paycheck. My Australorp breeding has started to pay off and the judge even made the kid showing against me feel my birds body type to show him what a good bird should be. (those are his words not mine) It made me feel good about what I have been working for. Maybe I need to get more serious about my breeding.... So what did I do?? Ordered fresh Blood lines in the form of 25 new chicks and they will be here the first part of May. When we got home Mom was off work and she started Mowing the yard. She also worked in her strolling garden. I think it is really looking nice even if it is a whole lot smaller. Dad and I went and barrowed Eddie's sprayer so that Sunday we could get the spraying done.
Today is Sunday and we had to get alot done around the place. First we were going to spray but the wind blew all day so we couldn't. We got the spray all mixed up and as soon as the wind lays we are going to get after it. Instead we moved the fence line to recapture some on the pasture that used to be Mom's garden. It is all going to get sprayed and be weed free. Then there is just one more fence to get in before I can use the new pasture. Mom finished up the mowing after she got off work while Dad and I went to rope with a bunch of guys we know. Mom even got the orchard mowed. There is one thing going on at our house tonight and that is that Mom is making everyone be in bed by 9pm. She says she is shutting down the house because we are all grippy from the lack of sleep. I have 20 minutes to finish this up and shower and get to bed so I better wrap it up for now.
Tomorrow I am going to try and get a video together of what all has been going on around here. Maybe I can do it like a tour. Oh, wait, I almost forgot. I have also been working on doing a geocache travelbug that will be set free from Berlin to makes it's way here. I will have to keep everyone posted as to when it is set free and how to track it. Then I am going to set one free to go back if everything works right. Anyway, off to bed. Good night world.
