Seems I don't get that much done like I would want during
the normal workweek. Days off not enough to really get caught
up. Need rest time. You know how it is.

So, my 3rd week oh holiday time coming up. I like taking
a week in spring and a week in fall. For the first time ever ,
this year I took as week in August. Works out pretty good
spreading out the holiday time 'for the seasons' .

Today day off before next week vacation. Unseasnally warm,
finally got to process some more birds. I was pleased with
the clean full white carcasses of the extra roosters. Black
Australorps favourite breed hatched from chicks outstanding
dual purpose, hardy, easy going, lay gobs of eggs. Good eating
young roosters and some for chicken soup very flavoured .
More plump ducks for freezer camp.

More of this for next week on zen stead, some critter blasting,
harvesting some game for freezer, fixing up bird pens for
winter keeping. Store up some straw, study some feed plans
and breeder selection.
My 'baby ' ducks now near 5 months old . Surprising me
with egg laying already. There were 10 eggs fresh this morning.
Nice bonus for winter baking additions .

Warm weather seems to hold. Maybe next week near normal .
Time to hit the trails , put out deer corn and salt, what could
be better than vacation steading?

I thought you meant leaf peepers, at least I think that's what they call them in the NE USA.
