Chiggers, mosquitos, and flies oh my!!!!!

I rebated my swarm traps yesterday and got chiggers around my ankles. My whole body is ate up with mosquito bites and the flies. Good grief the flies! Why didn't I put these sticky strips up weeks ago!!!!!
One day after hanging this up :/
Worked in the garden tonight and watched one of my free range baby bunnies eat tons of green bean buds, ugghhhh, not cute!

We butchered three roosters this weekend and tonight our neighbors buddy (funny fellow) came and got the other five. So in the morning my girls/hens will have a much needed break! I'm super happy about this! Some of my hens are missing tons of feathers on their backs and it looks like it hurts. I hope they heal up before the baby roo's grow up to be little buttheads.

I haven't been able to see blogs on my computer. It took a major dump last night and kinda crashed, so my lack of commenting isn't intentional. I just can't see your posts. Sorry :(


  1. Sorry to hear of your computer problems. And, of course, this time of year isn't exactly the time to spend indoors trying to get it fixed!

    I'm getting really itchy just reading about your flies, mosquitoes and chiggers. Why do those dratted little things have to come with summer time when we all spend the majority of our time outdoors? It's just not fair.

  2. The problem is with blogger.
    When I got rid of a bunch of roosters one time the egg production doubled over night, it was amazing how much damage the roosters were doing.

  3. Yep, it's happening to me to. One day it did not give me my reading list at all.
