Wow, we haven’t posted any updates for a while, so now it is time to play catch-up. Here’s a bunch of random pictures with explanations. I’m not feeling very well so I’m going to by-pass the whole actually writing a post thing. Okay?
Meet Ma and Pa Cochin. They were added to the homestead on Saturday, May 16. She laid an egg for us already!
Here I am with Ma. I know I look horrible. I feel it too.
Pa is so protective of Ma it is sweet.
The bantam chicks are growing! We’ve narrowed them down to Mille Fleur d’Uccles, Silver-Laced Sebright, Golden-Laced Sebright, Silver Duckwing Old English Game and Porcelain d’Uccles.
We got a pair of Blue-Laced Red Wyandottes.
The same day we fired up the incubator this brown leghorn decided to go broody. She’s our first broody hen. Between her and the incubator, we hope to hatch out Blue-Laced Red Wyandottes, Buff Orpingtons, Barnevelders, Lakenvelders and Buff Rocks.
The oldest set of chicks have been moved from the large brooder to a much more spacious pen in the barn. They love all the extra space.
The people who own the property lining ours has sold some lumber. The tree cutting crew has been thinning out the woods behind our house. Hubs and Buck decided to go for a hike.
Buck had his first T-ball practice last weekend. Go Pirates!
What have you been doing this spring?
