Life on the farm. Picture heavy.
Between my shoulder pain, and now fighting pneumonia,
I may not be able to do much on the farm. But, I can take
pictures and blog about it. ;)
Golden Comet chicks.
I bought 24 hens and got a RI red rooster.
2 new to us, but very old girls.
Their owner could no longer care for them.
They are being held separate from the flock
until they get used to us and get sheared.
One big pig and one tiny pig sleeping on their
pallet bed. The other three were sleeping in the
dirt next to a stump. The sun was too bright to
get a good picture.
Big pig and little pig.
There is about 6 weeks difference in age.
As you can see below she is quite a bit smaller.
She is 2 weeks younger than the smaller two.
They get a handful of donuts daily just to make it
easier to get them in the horse trailer when it is time to go.
What?! No donuts for us?
Silly sheep! They get the bagels the pigs won't eat.
The chickens are living in what was originally built
as a greenhouse. The grain bags are blocking the
windows and cutting down on the heat in the summer,
and cutting any extra breeze in the winter.
Hilary and Michelle....
I may have to change their names.
Not that they know them...
