Finding a dependable farm sitter can be nearly impossible! We’ve been so blessed by friends willing to help watch the animals so we can take a little weekend vacation to the beach.
When we noticed an oozing hole in our small kitten’s chest one day, I knew I had to do something to save his life…
Sadly, we haven’t had the best of luck raising our baby turkey poults.
And onto our newest adventure… raising turkeys!
You know the saying, “If it’s too good to be true…”
The guinea hens were finally big enough to let loose today. They sure enjoyed their first taste of freedom!
So, how many chicks did we end up getting from our hens??
This morning I found Smiley standing in her pen, something obviously terribly wrong.
Check out our newest additions to the farm. They’re awfully cute!!
What do I do with all of these eggs??
The countdown begins! 21 days till we *hopefully* have some baby chicks hatching out!
Over the weekend we visited a local Poultry Swap. We found some new additions for the homestead, and made a pretty good trade while there… I *think*.
It’s been almost two weeks since we got our first dairy goats, and I’ve learned a few tricks along the way!
Notice I didn’t say “How To Can Chicken”? This isn’t exactly the canned chicken you had in mind!
