Life on the farm...
We have grown!
We have Toby Flair, an orphan rooster. His Mama, Baby Cluck abandoned him at an early age.
Baby Cluck hatched off 3 little ones next. Alas, I found 2 of them dead in the duck pools awhile back. Then last week I went out and saw the last baby running around without her and immediately knew something was wrong. I found her body in Max's pen. Stiff as a board and headless. I don't know for sure Max killed her but the evidence is stacked against him.
The orphan chick is white as she can be. (I hope it's a she!) She hangs out with the guineas now.
|Orphan Chick. Any name suggestions?|
We recently acquired 3 kittens. Girls! Yes, I know...cats multiply like rabbits. But anyhoo...they re adorable. I can't tell them apart. Their names are Abigail, Amelia, & Allie.
|Which kitty? I dunno. Just multiply her x 3! They are identical.|
I have my meat chicks now. They are 3 weeks old now and I moved them from the brooder to the big coop. I figured they would stay huddled up together but nope. They were romping all over that coop by the end of the day.
|So much for not being huddled up eh?|
I had to put them in the back coop. I had started putting the geese and ducks up in the back coop at night because the ducks had started flying out of the paddock. Now they are out of a night dwelling.
At one point in time, I had my heart set on getting a trio of Blue Laced Red Wyandotte breed of chickens but for some reason have not. But I am convinced Mr. Wyandotte is a Wyandotte breed (Hence the name Mr. Wyandotte.) and am determined to keep him. He is HUGE! And beautiful. But now he is in cramped quarters and I really need to get him larger accommodations.
Well, that is it for the tour.
Hope y'all enjoyed yourselves.
See y'all later,
