Assorted notes

Some assorted updates:

  • The broody moran is trying it again. She got so close. We'll see if she can pull it off now. 
  • We are not going to not replace hens as they pass on since right now L cannot eat the eggs. I'll get new feed and see if that helps with L's egg problem.
  • Allergies have started up hard. Cottonwood is fuzzing out.
  • Fleas have risen in population, I setup the flea lights to trap and starve the little suckers.
  • Bees:
    • Ed's hive: added 3rd and 4th box, queen excluder between 3&4. He has: 1 deep, 2 mediums, exclude, 1 medium.
    • Our hive: added 3rd medium, need to deal with the damn ants that are putting eggs under the covers.
  • Looks like all the trees/bushes we bought are budding. The mulberry bush was the latest, we thought it was dead, but it finally started.
