Done for the DAY!
WOW! It's only 8am and I've already completed ALL my "farm chores" for the morning - including a walk out to the "back 40" to check the hog trap!!! Laundry is started as the sun is starting to burn off the morning's grey cloud cover. Even managed to fill all the critters water trouphs AND water the orchard - both are pretty time consuming.

Last night as I did the evening farm chores I discovered a Bull Snake in the chicken's pet, He was beautiful and at least 5' long! Hated to have to kill him, but he had swallowed the fake egg that I keep in one of the nesting boxes. This egg is wooden and therefore impossible for the snake to digest, pass or regurgitate - that means a slow, painful death, so we chopped his head off as a mercy killing...

Now those of you who HATE SNAKES have to realized that Non-Venomous snakes ARE GOOD SNAKES!!! They eat rodents when can spread disease and since snakes are territorial the "good" snakes help keep away the "bad" ones. I would much rather find a Bull or Gopher snake the my coop than a Copper Head or Rattler!!!
