The lucky winners of the Charlie kit and Jack kit are Diane Moffet from Maryland and Jennie Cruzan from Texas.
Charlie and Jack are going out in the mail today!
Yesterday was such a gorgeous day – wish we had 30 more coming but I know better. It was a great day to take some pictures of the animals.
But first the pumpkin crop – pretty, isn’t it?
Emma on the stairs – her favorite place to hang out.
Colton has taken up residence in the barn – good boy!
Mama Kitty is always around and “talks” to me but won’t let me touch her – yet.
Here’s an interesting fact I’ve learned about chickens – they prefer drinking out of these waterers and it has to be something about bending their head down to get the water and then tipping their head back to swallow. I can’t take any chances with buckets so this type of waterer is everywhere making chores difficult because they’re hard to fill – but wait till you see the “tribe”!
Mama Hen runs these chicks over two acres – look at how they’re spread out with Mama in the lead clucking all the time to keep the tribe close.
And a closer picture as I fed them. Such a variety of colors and their wing feathers are already showing – this will be so fun to see what kinds they are depending on who laid the egg in the nest before Mama starting setting on it.
And just a warning – I’ve had a hard time posting these pictures so if you don’t get them, I won’t be surprised. One last chuckle picture – working on HIPS. Has this ever happened to you? I’ll bet it has and I just wanted you to be comforted by the fact that it happened to me last nite as well.
