Ever since the dam broke, some of the fish that died that day have been popping up from the bottom of the pond. Maybe one or two every day. That means there have been a lot of vultures hanging around in the trees. I think its creepy. They watch us, they watch the fish, and just wait for us to pull the dead fish out of the pond.
When we leave the fish out for them, somehow they are able to clean the fish and leave only the bones. We have never been able to watch them do it because they are very sneaky! Today I found a huge vulture feather. I think its really cool!
Yesterday, I learned how to clean the chicken coop. It really stinks. First we locked the chickens in their recess area, and then I scooped the old wood chips and chicken poop out. We put them into a wheel barrow. When we were shoveling it was really stinky! Then we put new chips in the chicken coop. We get the wood chips from a place that makes furniture out of wood. We bring our empty fish food bags and they fill them up with wood chips for us. Then we use the fresh wood chips to make the chicken coop smell nice and clean again. The chickens were getting antsy outside to see the clean coop.
After we cleaned the wood chips out, we took them to the garden so we can start a new garden bed for some new seeds to grow. Our last batch are already getting big, so we want to be sure we have new ones growing. I helped my mom bring up the wood for the garden fence. I even hammered in all the stakes to keep the frame up.
I know I said I was going to show you some rocks, but I need to find some better ones because the ones I have don't look very good in pictures, but they look really cool in real life! Ill keep looking.
