Using My Local Library
My printer is on the fritz so I went to my local library a few days ago to print off a couple papers I needed. While there I looked around to see what movies they have. I decided on to check out dvd's to watch instead of regular tv-limited to 4 channels. This weekend the weather was cold and snowy so I have been watching seasons of tv shows. It sure is a nice change and no commercials. I definitely have under utilized my local library and missed out on activities there as well. Be sure to check out your local library who knows what kind of fun things you'll find. I know I sure will and it's free.
My DIY Chicken Feeder
When we first got chickens over 4 years ago I started looking at chicken feeders in stores and online. I decided to make my own. This was a NO COST feeder because I got the board (it's an old office cubicle divider) for free and my husband had the screws already. It only took my time to come up with a design and decide how big I wanted it to be. I measured and cut the boards myself with a circular saw, then screwed the boards together with a cordless drill. The top is just a board sitting on the top of the feeder. Originally I put the feeder in the coop but it was hard to keep it clean, so as you can see in the pictures it is now sitting outside the coop. This feeder will hold (or close to) 75 lbs of chicken feed. I like pellets because they are not as messy. I'm proud of myself that I did this DIY project myself!!
