Summer’s here!

June 25th, 2007 · No Comments · Uncategorized

You know all those happy ice-filled-chests-everywhere commercials with everyone outside staying cool and beating the heat? That don’t happen ’round here. Summer hits and everyone just turns into slugs. The horses keep moving to find the best shade and Moo won’t even come out of the chicken coop. I’ve offered to put the sprinkler out […]

Gotta love Ed

After a day in the barn stall Moo was ready to be let OUT. I led her out and then shoo’d Sparky along where she followed Moo right back into the coop. We’re not sure Moo even came out of the coop yesterday except for a drink as I filled her water bucket. Since the […]

It’s a girl!

Sparky was born at 9:15 last night. She’s all black with one small white patch on her private areas. Moo took to mothering like a champ and started her cleanup less than a minute after calving. I noticed this morning that Sparky wasn’t nursing at all and so we moved them both into the large […]

June 5th, 2007 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Here are the new baby chicks. All the other hens came to inspect them and apparently only one posed a threat which caused an uproar from mama. She led them into the coop but rested directly in the middle of the floor where you can see Moo laying in yesterday’s post. Sometimes Moo has to […]
