Ok back to other farm matters. The storms did damage to our roof and have forced us to reroof the whole thing, so we are working hard to make the money to get it done. Yesterday, I missed calss so I could get out and get traps to cover the now gapping hole, that was once our roof... Oh well it wil be ok, we have a plan. We are going to buy all the plywood and other wood , nails and tar paper and buy a square of shingles at a time if we have to. Tarping the roof inbetween. We plan to try and buy as many broken bundles and discontinued colors as we can, it should save us a bunch of money and where we kice in the middle of now where, no one will care what color our roof is.
To the animals, we are still selling hatching eggs, except for the cayuga ducks, which seem to really hate storms and be over all messy creatures. We have emailed the last buyer and expalined the problem and after it is settled I will move the ducks to a wire bottom inclosure and should have more and better eggs to sell. I set dirty eggs all the time, but most people do not, so it really can put us in a bad place not having these egss to sell.
Ok found a lead on shingles for 2o bucks a square...have to go for now and look into it.
Shekhinah, Michael and all the kids and critters at Mahanaim Farm
