    The change meant removing the front "step" from the chassis faceplate / control panel, re-building everything out of fresh aluminium panel, manually, and some more interesting stuff..

    Hi

    I made a zero waste feeder for my chickens. I saw a pic on the internet and copied the design. It's been a couple of weeks now and it really is zero waste. Chickens usually scratch and poo in their food, but this prevents this. I also bought a water feeder because they need water constantly.

    I leave the coupe door open during the day so the hens can graze around. They return to the coupe on their own when it gets dark.

    We also get eggs everyday now.

    These stands are suitable for 10kL each and the tops will be level with the existing 4.5kL tanks.
    Intussen 'n paar Rande bymekaar gemaak vir 1x 10kL tenk.

    Mammie het jou van ver af sien kom meneer. Daai bedtafel lyk perfek om n ontbyt op neer te sit naweke - jy weet wie gaan die ontbyt maak?

    Lockdown has been a tough journey for us. Still only doing a fraction of normal business but we are hard at work redirecting our vision for the future. So as part of this here is an update of a previous post showing progress of Dearest new consulting rooms.

    So we bought this house about a year ago. Now this is the TV room and I have often wondered why I never want to watch TV. And then it struck me...

    That wall could not be any uglier. I mean, Canary yellow would have been better.

    At least now it is softer on the eye.
