The beginning of fall, and the shorter days that come with it, has brought night running back to a regular occurrence. Fortunately, I have Joe the super dog to help me find my way at night. Joe can see much better in the dark than can I, or at least that is what he tells me… Regardless, when he ignores the occasional cat or deer that may cross our path, Joe does a good job of keeping us both out of trouble.
Our chickens are growing quite fast. I think the ladies (they had better be ladies) have more than doubled in size over the past couple of weeks. It will probably be only another five or six weeks until they are full grown, at which point they will move outside into their coop. Joe, who actually hasn’t met any of them yet, should get a surprise when he sees chickens in his backyard.
