Last summer I finally got around to fixing a leak in the roof on the high side of the chimney. While I was up there I shot this 360 degree view of our farm. In the beginning I'm looking to the north east across the buck pen, you can see a few of our raised beds after that. Where the stock trailer is sitting is where the new barn will go. The galvanized metal building near the house at the 0:05 mark in the video is my future workshop. At the 0:10 mark in the video is our existing loafing shed that we've retrofitted as the current goat barn.
On a completely unrelated note I think I've finally got the chickens to lay their eggs in the nesting boxes I built instead of other random places on the farm. We actually stopped collecting eggs for a long time since we never knew where they were laying them. If you recall I built a tunnel of fence for the chickens that allows them to "free-range." I honestly can't tell that free range eggs taste any different, but at least now I can harvest them. Each time I would find a cache of eggs it was always in a pile of straw or hay. Of course there's no telling how long they were there so I always discarded them.
In the chicken house we have always used cedar shavings. It helps to keep it smelling fresh but I just recently realized I should probably fill the nesting boxes with straw, since that's what they seem to prefer (at least over cedar shavings). Lo and behold I've been collecting anywhere from 4 eggs to 9 eggs a day now. I think chickens like to have some privacy when they're doing their business. Egg inventory is now through the roof (there's 4 dozen in the fridge). I better find some people to take em!
