Chase Swims

We are well into summer and since I’m feeling better from my recent surgery the doctor said I can try to get back into shape by waking some.  On a recent walk hubby and I took Chase to a park where he can swim. Now Baxter will have nothing to do with swimming so he just stood by and watched.  But our boy Chase … Read More Chase Swims

Happy Belated 4th

The boys reminded me today that I never posted their 4th photo… So Happy 4th of July (belated) from Baxter and Chase. They hope you had a fun, parades, and fireworks filled day 🙂

Born Free…

So the baby girls had their first day out in wide open spaces yesterday. At first they stayed close to their chicken tractor… But eventually they took off testing their wings and exploring… At one point something must have scared them as the crowed back towards the fence… But eventually they just had fun exploring, under hubbys and my close observation. This is our … Read More Born Free…

Growing Chicks

Our baby chicks are not baby’s anymore 😦 They are big enough now that they can be outside in the chicken tractor every day and learn to be chickens. The big chickens are exploring around the chicks enclosure more and more… Its funny to watch them interact, or not interact, and sometimes just ignore each other. The baby’s are also learning to eat pellet … Read More Growing Chicks

Adventures for Baby Chicks

Our baby chicks are growing and as you know from my last post are able to regulate their body temperature enough where they can be out in the yard on nice warm days. As you can see from the above photo when they go outside they are placed in our newly built chicken tractor so they are safe to explore and birds or other … Read More Adventures for Baby Chicks

Mother’s Day

A very happy and beautiful Mother’s Day to all you mom’s out there, but especially to my Mom and Grandma 🙂               I love my mom and grandma and all they have taught me.

New Baby Chicks 2015

We broke down and got some more cuteness this year in the form of 10 new baby chicks… We have been debating getting new birds, but since we lost a few more of our oldest chickens this year we decided it was time to get new ones… especially since our egg production is down. We got them when they were one day old and … Read More New Baby Chicks 2015

Chickens and Snow

We have had more snow the past couple of days and I have been trying to keep up with the animals. There are some things I have learned about chicken keeping in the snow, so I thought I would share some of them. You may know some (or all) of them, but maybe you will learn something new 🙂 1. Chickens don’t like to … Read More Chickens and Snow

Snow Time

The forecast says we are to have snow from now until Monday. We had a couple inches today… But they say more is coming from Friday to Monday. The chickens refuse to go out in the snow so even though their door was open… not a chicken was seen. Still the boys had fun out in the snow. Chase enjoyed checking out the chicken … Read More Snow Time

Christmas Results

I hope you all had a blessed and happy Christmas. Did you celebrate in any special way? We had a quiet and relaxing day. Ate some good food, opened some gifts, and celebrated our Saviors birth. When the day started out the dogs were up and ready… But by the end of the day they were sacked out… But Santa brought them some good treats … Read More Christmas Results

First Snow…

Here it is… Our first snow of the season. There is something special about the first snow and this one is especially special because hubby and I have been home together. We took it easy today ( I had quite a migraine for most of the day), but we had to go out for a while and get the chickens situated. The pups went … Read More First Snow…

State Fair Barn Visit

In September we went to our State Fair. I have gone to the state fair in this state every year since we moved here,  except the year I got married and last year I wasn’t able to either. Instead of mom and dad going with me, now its usually mom, step-dad, and if I’m lucky hubby, if he is not working. They also moved the location of … Read More State Fair Barn Visit
