New feeder station
I decided I needed another rat bait feeding station at my avocado tree if I wanted any of them as they were packing them away at night.
I needed something protected from the rain and something my chickens wouldn’t get into.
This plant pot base seemed the ticket to do the job. I got some oats and was going to put them under this thing but dropped them at the last moment and spilled them on the ground. Oh well, I scooped up what I could and put them back in the container and put them under the cover.
I decided to left the cover up for now as I wanted to see what they were doing. The reason I used this is the rats don’t seem to like to go into things to get the bait. At least things that might look like a trap does. Eventually the cover will be down on the blocks so there will be open air space all around it.
I didn’t put any rodent bait out yet as I want them to get use to this thing first which I hope they do quickly.
To help keep the chickens out of this garden area as that’s where the bait station is located, I needed to put this part of the fence back up which meant I had to find my post driver and install those two steel posts. I had to look for that darn post driver and found it in the last place I used it.
I put the game cam back on it but will eventually put one of my other cams on it that is hooked to my computer as it’s easier to watch things that way.
Pipe burial work
It was getting late in the day and I only had a couple hours left before dark when I decided to work on burying some more spring water pipe up in the hills so I rode the dirt bike up to this spot to work on it.
