The Chickens got some cooked veggie noodles and spiral pastas. They go absolutely nuts over pasta. I use veggie broth to give them a little extra nourishment in them but it is mostly just a treat. Watching them eat spaghetti is the best comedy ever!
We had a nuc order being picked up so my protector sits with me at the meeting point. She looks like she is on high alert.........or maybe not.
These swarm lure boxes were waiting to go out into the field, but it looks like there is no need. The bees are coming to us! They have been moved to a new hive, requeened, and an exluder added to prevent the drones from mating with our stockline.
Ran out in the field and set up another trap-out...........the poor returning foraging bees were extremely confused but very quickly started entering the box I set up for them.
Since I was in the area we checked on an old hive to make sure there was no new occupants. Yep.....still a ghost town here.
"Brass" had one little baby kitten. She put it in an old cat house we had that we moved into the garden where the dogs can't go. "BB" on the other hand, put her kittens way down in a den under a brush pile that we can't get to. A friend of ours was over and he made her this awesome cat house that we are hoping she will move her kittens to. We are so happy with our outdoor cats. We have not had a pack rat, mouse, or centipede problem since we got them. Great job kitties!
