Despite the outrageous heat, at least once a day we have to let the girls play outside or they go crazy! My girls love outside.
But, yesterday it got a little out of control. Kaylyn and Laney Rae were covered head to toe in dirt. And I'm almost positive the next diaper I change of Laney Rae's will be filled with grit- poor girl! She could not stop eating the dirt. She must be deficient in some mineral or something. Isn't that what that means?
It looked as if Laney Rae had a gotee around her face. I had to take some photos of my girls playing in the dirt. I know it's typically considered a 'boy thing', but my girls can get dirty with the best of them. Wanna see proof?
Jason was working on the roof his mobile chicken coop while we were playing below him in the dirt. Kaylyn decided to be adventurous and climb on top with him. The sun was gorgeous peaking through the trees.
Kaylyn has gotten TONS more adventurous since we've moved to the country. It was rare to find her in the dirt or climbing on top of things up until a few years ago. I might have encouraged it a little too much and probably could stand to be a bit more cautious.
Jason completed his mobile chicken coop yesterday and moved it out to the pasture. He has been working on it a few weeks now.
He converted an old cotton trailer into a coop for our 300+ pullets that are soon to become layers. He will rotate the coop behind our cows in the pasture to add extra fertilization to the fields, help with fly control (chickens eat fly larvae out of the poo), and help break up organic matter in the pastures. I can't wait to see this come together beautifully in the near future.
