~ Guinea Fowl ~

Dh worked on the chicken coop Saturday , he added the boards around the top. He has to build the nesting boxes and add a couple of doors. He's also going to cover the run with chicken wire. Hopefully he'll have it finished in a month.

I found some guinea keets for sale last week , picked them up yesterday afternoon. They are 2 weeks old , I plan to keep them in the basement for about a month , then move them to the coop. Back in the Spring we were invaded with those small deer ticks , that carry Lyme disease. I've heard that guinea will take care of the tick problem.
I've came to a halt on my decluttering , busy getting the garlic planted and mulched. I've also been cleaning and putting away outdoor furniture and stuff. I hope to get my dining room table decluttered tomorrow. It's been cluttered all summer , canned goods , veggies , garlic , mail , books and alot of other stuff. It seems to be our drop it there place , really need to get it cleaned.
