i've got a bunch of workers all standing around huddled together overlooking what was a buried electrical box for our sprinkler system that falls directly in the footprint of the new front walkway that they're installing that they obviously don't know what to do with. i'm guessing that this isn't going to end well.

*edit: one of them is a spitting image of a mexican gimli from lord of the rings.


i had some dudes bury some electric in a foundry box last week

don't think you would want to pave over that tho

Shower light went out, which is fine except it's apparently one of those LED jigs which are supposed to last a decade so...hoping it's not a wiring issue.

Chickens are a go. They seem to prefer digging in the dirt to trays full of food. Is this the norm, or are we seeing the negative impact of too much selective breeding for traits unrelated to egg production and basic survival?

If they make it that long, the egg colors should be fun.

Home ownership is for the birds. Amirite?

They are foraging for bugs and worms. Have you built Joel Saladin houses for them? Look into it, it's the standard setup for pasture-raised.

We do have a mobile coop/ run. Unfortunately, the entire yard is hard clay except for some grass. Maybe when the pullets are bigger we will move them around the grass area. Seems like resting the run on grass will make it easier for predators or pests to get in.

They seem to have figured out the whole feed situation, and are eating more from that than foraging. They didn't care much for the milled crumble, but the whole grain stuff is just fine.

I presume the house you refer to is one that is mobile?

Yeah, but it depends on the size. I worked on a farm with multiple houses, each for 30 hens; there were chains on the frame and we’d move it daily with a pickup truck (a Honda Accord would do just fine though). But I think that smaller houses can be moved by hand.

Yeah, we have 4 hens (we hope all of them are female). The wheels on the coop kinda suck, but it should be moveable by hand. The chickens like digging in some potting soil we threw down, not sure how they'll do with the clay.

For wood ash baths, what sort of container or setup do you suggest?

Never used it! I’d just be googling any advice I gave you.

I’m telling you - call up your hack inspector for a chat.

You sure that’s not the sound of democracy collapsing?

Our vents make a banging sound every time the furnace kicks on. Doesn't seem to point to anything serious, but it's annoying at 3 AM.

Don't think that's part of a normal inspection

Windows are definitely part of a normal inspection. And FWIW, our inspector missed a big hot water heater issue that cost us almost $600 one week after moving in. I sent him a note and he offered to refund his fee. I passed on his offer, but hey, you never know...
