But now I'm back. Sorry about that. Life got crazy, but mostly not on the permaculture front.
We did pick up new chicks today. I'm gonna take a risk that the dog has gotten the raccoon under control. We lost all 10 of our hens last year to a bored and destructive raccoon, and have since gotten a beautiful brindle pit bull who has taught that raccoon to fear the inside of my house. Hopefully she has also taught it to avoid the yard, but that is harder to confirm.
We'll know soon. The hard way.
So we picked up six two week old chicks today: three production reds and three barred rocks, and we'll be picking up four grown hens from Oma, who gave them to me for Solstice.
Here's hoping the racoon is gone for good. ~crosses fingers~
