Busy Busy Bees
Meanwhile, we are busy as bees ourselves. We are just back from Kyobashi Asaichi (thanks to everyone who came out this morning!), an early morning market we have been a part of since opening the bakery, and the list of to do`s stretches far and wide - chicken fencing to be secured, chicken tractors to be made, the goat run to be relocated, tomatoes to be planted, the wheat harvest to be prepared for and, of course, because it is Japan in the late spring, laundry to be done.
Wanna see some photos of the chicken tractors?
Here`s one for several hens, 1 meter by 2 meters:
And here is the one that houses the chicks at night. The bottom of this one is screened over to keep them safe, but since it is just chicken wire, bits of greenery poke through. Right now we have it set up inside a larger chicken netting yard, so the chicks (both 2 week old actual chicks and 6 week old no-longer-chicks-not-yet-chickens) can run around more in the day and be tucked in safely at night. Plus, the roof provides rain and predator protection during the day.
