Oh no! It has officially become “that time of year”. That time of year when we make a huge personal sacrifice so that our customers can continue to purchase fresh eggs. WE BUY THEM! Can you believe that??? Continue reading
Today we had time for a little project this morning, after chores (and a few sips of coffee). Our littles need to be moving down and out to make room for the new littles coming soon. For a while now Sue has wanted to put a door that goes directly to the bottom brooder so that we can let them have their own indoor/outdoor access without the biggies chasing them. So, we did the very first steps today. Continue reading
You know how sometimes I get distracted by going down worm holes looking for images to match my title? Well, happened again today. I thought I would be a great idea to have a small bottle of ketchup to go with the title. Then I went the “catsup” vs. “ketchup” route. There is a great deal of energy surrounding that controversy. I decided to stay clear of it an use a photo with both spelling…I think it’s funny, all on its own. Anyway – wanted to do a bit a “ketchup” today, but only regarding the farm. If you want to delve into the difference between “ketchup” and “catsup”… here’s a great article for you. Continue reading
You know the days and nights are a great deal colder now and I really thought that snake season would be over. BUT IT’S NOT! At least not going by the happenings of today! Things have been a bit slow around here, what with the all the wind, so let me tell you what happened today. Continue reading
Every once in a while we have these days: no photos available. Not that things aren’t happening, just that we’re too busy doing stuff to take photos. We say that, then sit down and say, “what did we do?”. Busy, busy, busy. This is just an ordinary, nothin’ special, everything normal, type of post. One that you can skip and not feel guilty about. Continue reading
Some fun things happened this week; thought I’d share tonight. Just going to go down the list and share any photos that correspond. Most of this revolves around the fact that we received new chicks yesterday. Here we go… Continue reading
Yep, used that as a title. I’m in California this week. Mom’s doing well, thanks for all the kind thoughts and love. Sue is taking care of things on the farm… I’m hoping that Dustin is helping where he can. Sue’s been a bit quiet about how things are going, but she did say that she cleaned 8 pasty butts on Sunday afternoon. Those butts belonged to the banty chicks. So, they are really small butts. This happens on occasion. Mostly if we get them over the initial issue they do fine after a week or so. Pasty butt can be brought on by the stress of the shipping, or because they got too cold. She also sent along this photo of the sunrise from the other day. It’s always gorgeous at the very beginning and very ending of the day.
Tomorrow I hope to be able to write a bit about the tour of the aquaponics farm that Ray, Tony, and I took on Saturday and talk about how that’s going for the owners.
I just wanted to write quickly right now so you didn’t think I was ignoring you all! Stay tuned for the random postings!
Yes, it is almost Friday – just a few short hours and we’re into the weekend. What’s your weekend hold? Ours has officially become a processing weekend. But before we get there, let’s talk a bit about yesterday and today. They’ve not been that exciting, but every day is an adventure, right? Continue reading
Tonight we’re doing a bullet list type of thing. I’m starting this at 7:10 p.m., and for some reason – I am just way dragged out. So, I’m not doing a long thought out post – and I don’t have any photos to share with you… so this will be boring. Ready! Continue reading
Happy Sunday everyone… here we go! Photos for you – I’ll do my best to explain what we have, but as has been the case as of late – there really isn’t a cohesive theme. I’m starting with this photo of Leggs because I think it’s funny. This was Friday morning. I was changing the bandage on her foot and she just ended up sitting in my lap like that. She just stayed like that the entire time I worked on her foot. She was pretty comfortable. Continue reading
