Happy Birthday to ME!

My birthday is next week and I couldn't wait, I found this little guy and gave him to myself for my birthday. He is a 5 month old australian shepherd, perfect for a girl who has saddled herself with livestock and poultry.

Circus Chicken

All the chicks and ducks are now at the barn where they belong, but I miss having them where I can check on them frequently. One day my daughters asked if I would like to see Circus Chicken. Upon inquiry, I was informed that Circus Chicken is when you take a chick and put it on top of the waterer and and after fluttering helplessly, the chick jumps off. Kind of reminds me of cow tipping. Good times.

Yay Chickens!

Here they are, 28 chicks, 26 of them are bantam Cochins, 1 is a standard Buff Orpington-we call her Barbra Jean, and 1 is an exotic surprise chick that the hatchery sent us-we think he is a Phoenix chicken and we call him Brock (picured in the middle photo on the left, he has the brown stripe down his head). They are just over a week old in these photos and they have been so fun! This is their first time outside in grass, the rest of the time they are in large clear plastic containers with heat lamps in my house. I am looking forward to when they are moved out to the barn, but it has been a fun experience!

Too Long

It has been too long since I've posted, but I've decided it is time to post again. Unfortunately, since our other computer "caught" a virus, I don't have access to all of our digital photos, which is sad, I have some great stories to share. It will just have to wait a couple more weeks until we get our computer back. Until then, I have new stories to share. COMING UP-photos of the most adorable chicks ever! Yes, I hear voices in my head, they sing old macjocelyn had a farm...
