It has been awhile since I updated what is going on here on the farm. So here is a day on the farm:
Newly planted Mcintosh Apple Tree becomes public bath for the birds! Three trees...should be the new name of the farm as we now have three trees and a zillion mesquite bushes. The chickens thought that they were in heaven with the upturned dirt and coolness left by a slow watering(of the tree) as they were taking dusting baths. No they are not dead although the one in the front looks a bit like she is.
Cats under the truck cover resting on some drywall that will become an archway and wall between the dining room and the family room. Cats names- Jethro on the left and Jericho on the right(each of the kids kept a kitten from the two litters born on the farm...Second picked and named Jethro(NCIS) and First picked and named Jericho.
Freckles is broody and has about 8 eggs under her. I cannot wait to see if we have any ducklings this year on the farm.(ps I love freckled animals!!!)
This is Colonel Sanders and a few of his harem enjoying a dusting bath. He keeps watch over his mini flock!
This is Miss Scarlet. She no longer lays any eggs, but some birds have been granted amnesty and have become part of the farm and will die a natural death!
My arch nemesis Krut...(yes he and I have had many episodes, and I remind him how I cannot wait to boil off those lovely feathers and prepare him for a fantastic Thanksgiving dinner. We have an amazing young Tom ready to take over so his days are numbered)
