Sorry for the lack of posts here!
The flu ravaged thru the house for a couple weeks, bouncing back and forth among us like a berserk pinball.
Then we had wind, wind and , yes, more damn wind. And sand wind and dust wind and cold wind and....just damn wind.
My sons leg is healing slowly. Therefore, most of the farm chores are still alllllll mine. The feeding, the milking, the cleaning of pens, etc., etc., and so on. I get up at 5 am and by 8 pm I am so exhausted I fall asleep in the armchair.
Tabatha, our fast growing Belgian Malinois puppy makes darn sure I wake up every hour or two to pet her, pay attention to her, feed her, clean up her poop, etc...
So, yeah...exhaustion to the nth degree.
Ugly Betty, one of my favorite chickens went broody and hatched out three of the most adorable chicks ever. They are currently living in our smaller rabbit hutch, both rabbits being in the spacious bunny palace we constructed last month. Betty is a wonderful mama hen and it is delightful to watch her take care of her little ones.
I have eggs from the turkeys, peafowl, geese and ducks in the incubator....but nothing yet.
That's a quick update....will try to get some pictures in the next few days to post.
