In early December, I posted about my Morning Routine then, but things change quite quickly so my morning routine now is a little different. I took some picture this morning as I was doing the rounds and feeding all the animals, just to give you an idea of what has to be done.
First of all, I need my trusty head torch, as it is still dark before 8am. It was still dark today around 8.30 but getting lighter, I can’t wait for the days to get longer again. Another month should make a big difference. All the pictures taken today were by the light of the head torch only, no flash.
The chicks are the first to get fed in the mornings. I go over to their run and feed them their growers crumbs.
While I’m over there, I check the hen houses for eggs.
And it was a decent haul today. The hens have started laying again after a hiatus of nearly 2 months.
Next are the hens. 22 of them (and 2 ducks) waiting impatiently for their breakfast. Some of them tend to follow me around until they get fed!
Rams are up after this. They are a friendly bunch so I took a couple of pics of them. They love their food!
I then walk out to my parent’s house with Bud and feed the sheep and lambs that are out there – while also dropping Bud off at daycare (my mother)
I tend to feed the ewes first, which means that the lambs are standing about 5 metres away, desperate for some food!
They get their way and I head back in to my own house for my own breakfast.
