Started to do a few alterations to Avery on the stock loft putting the door way in the front as the original one is on the side its a pain having to bend down under the last trap to get in and started   to make the new runners for the nest boxes to put the front's up out the way the up and over are a pain when cleaning out

Looked after old pals birds while he's unwell. Forgot how much hard work it is, been a few years since I had a scraper in my hand. Nice bright day so went through all loft with a good clean out, scrubbed drinkers, and fresh grit and pickstone, fed them full then removed troughs. Give me something to do for a while instead of sitting in front tv eating for eating sake. Still got a week off work, nice feeling!

Yesterday took out nest boxes. Changing to perches. Then divide it. W. hens and Young birds. Tried 2 hours to cut the old wood to make perches. Disaster! Today will burn all the old wood and buy enough 1x4's to do the job properly.
Bands arrived this morning. Weather quite good, light snow just above freezing. Very strange weather. Not complaining 5 below zero F will show up eventually.

So was I Ray, "smile,smile" (Work) Cleaning up pigeon sh**e here , which I best would describe as 3 inches of deep litter soup after a one in thirty year storm hit here & 40 odd people had to be rescued from their cars on the roads it was that bad as such before they floated out to sea etc. Nearly got my old surf board out I had that much rain on my little mountain. Cheers.

I have just come back from the dentist!

This was the second time had to go back for the same tooth and the dentist still hasn't finished with this tooth. It has cost £140 already (or the euro equivalent) and we still not finished.

How do they justify their prices - I was only in there 35 minutes. I wish I could charge over £120 per hour for my work.

We had a hawk kill one of our racing cocks yesterday, so we are a bit peed off about that.

Do any of you guys keep your birds in during the winter months to stop hawks eating them? Or at least restrict the time they are out, for the same reason?

Phil
