Okay so after a few days here are how they are working....
The one with the 4 black pans are okay
BUT the nails are working out.
I think its because they are rubber pans and move a lot.
Anything metal like these feeder pans or hard plastic
are not letting go of the nails.
This one is working VERY Well!
I may replace the rubber pans with metal..
So then I got another idea...
I had used this PVC pipe for various things but they didn't work long..
Well this maybe it!
I used drywall screws to attach it to the board.
The end of the boards are more for keeping the feed in than for anything else.
I just had a major case of the L Z's(you know lazy?) and didn't trim to fit..
But these should be easy to clean out and move..
Lucian showing off!lol
He is Very tall on his back legs.
These will be the 6 does kidding this next spring.
they are basically ignoring Lucian now.
A good sign they are all bred.
This is "The Spot" to lounge!lol
Lucian will be going home next week probably. Then Moses will get his full pen back and the 4 does locked away will be back out with the herd. I hope to get a good pic of Dollie then. She is growing and holding her own with the 3 other does. April pretends she doesn't like her then allows her to sleep by her... Silly goats..
I really don't intend to blog mostly about the goats but they do more than the rabbits or chickens.Lol.. Most of the time.
We have been working on getting things set up for winter. Now that everyone is feeling better around here. We have the chicken house all ready with the tarp attached to the back to block the north wind. We put more sawdust in for bedding and as soon as the oak tree is done losing its leaves we will rake those up and add them. The rabbits need just a little more then will be ready.
The Goats(see always back to the goats?) have the back of the barn up and one hay rack in place. I also got the huge heavy pallet up that will make stalls for kidding time in place. We have been adding sawdust to the floor of the barn and will also add leaves to help it not get so packed as it does with hay.. Hopefully!
That is it for now..
