Well That Answers That!
Just a quick post tonight. It rained off and on most of the morning but dried out enough that I started mowing the Horrible Buttercup infestation this afternoon. Takes a lot more time doing it with a riding lawn mower than the brush hog but I am trying to get all the little yellow flowers. I did notice that there is a good amount of Clover and some actual grass mixed in with the Buttercup so maybe if I keep it mowed the other stuff will take over as it dries out and heats up. Apparently that Buttercup does not do well in hot, dry conditions. Which we will get eventually.
The rain is settling in the new posts nicely so looks like I may be able to finish the crossroads paddock by this weekend, weather permitting. Ya I am trying out different names until one sticks.
And the question plus answer? Well Mrs. PP came and showed me one of the chicken eggs she collected today and it had the spot on the yoke.
Apparently Rocky wasn't getting the job done and simply wanted to just rough up the hens more than anything else. I have also noticed this new rooster gets randy only a fraction of the number of times Rocky used to pretend he was doing anything.
He also doesn't act all upset when some of the hens are off doing their own thing or get pissy about hens hanging out on the porch. The hens have stopped picking on him too so I guess he is winning them over. We will see if his good disposition holds though. It took Rocky almost a year before he started getting mean.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!!!
