We also make a quick stop to the old house. I finally finished going through all of the seed collection that had made it to the new house and was feeling really down that most of my bean seeds did not make the trip. Tony had stopped by the old house to look before but couldn't find them. I was able to dig through some stuff in the old house and sure enough found the missing bean seed box! Yay!! That should keep me busy part of tomorrow, and then I'll still be on track to finish my inventory check by the end of the week.
One of the does in the chicken coop is looking very plump. I suspect she may be nearing the end of a pregnancy. Not surprising as she does live with a buck in a colony style group. I'm hoping she's clever enough to use one of the nest box totes I have provided and stuffed with shavings that the chickens can't get to. Otherwise, I doubt kits will survive the cold just laid out on the floor with open access to the chickens. If she was pregnant before she arrived (possible as all the does were free-range prior to their arrival here), she could be due any day. If she bred when she was introduced to the colony, she'd be due around November 4. Crossing my fingers for a successful winter litter.
On a positive note - cold weather means winter sowing season is just around the corner! And now with nearly boundless space, I can grow even more!
