Other chores...

Hubby takes a moment to "talk to the animals" after a hard day's work.
He makes sure we have enough nestboxes on hand for all the expansion does, building 34 in one weekend. The boxes are 9" high in the back tapering to the front, 18' long and 11"wide.
He also does the "torching" to remove hair and sanitize after use of each litter. Then I scrub, or spray in the colder part of winter, with a bleach solution for extra sanitizing. We like to let them dry in the sun. We got a little behind during the ice storm / power outage so we had a lot to do when it warmed back up.The Brock bin in front of the barn is what we keep the rabbit pellets in. It holds 3 ton of feed. Hubby climbs the ladder and checks to see how much we have used so that we order it in time and don't run out. There is a sliding trap door at the bottom where we push the feed cart under and fill it. It usually takes 2-3 cartfuls a day to feed the rabbits.

Wow, that's a lot to get done on a Saturday! I thought the bin was new since I had been there.

The weather looks wonderful there, send some our way?

Have a great Sunday!
