A long week..

I’ve had a pretty tough week this week!  I’m really ready to see Friday night, crawl in bed and sleep in late Saturday morning.  I’m sure we’ve all had days like that!

I finally uploaded some new pics to share with you.  My first is entitled, “A Chicken in Every Pot” :

This is one of the baby Silkie chicks at about 2 days old.  (Please note: No chickens were harmed in the making of these photographs)

Here is one of Fran, and even though it’s blurry, I think it’s really hilarious the way she looks, as though she’s thinking, “MMMmmmm.  Finger lickin’ good!”  Don’t worry, she didn’t do anything other than the Excited Chicken Dance.  I didn’t let her get any closer than that.

Now the chicks are about 3.5 weeks old and I need to get pics of them.  They are mostly now feathered out and trying to fly.  Well, except for the Silkies.  Poor things look like a maribou boa gone bad.  They probably couldn’t fly if they tried.

I’m excited at the prospect of ordering my layers!  Yes, yes, that DOES mean more chickens!  My family and friends already think I’m nuts as it is for having as many birds as I do, and I’m sure I’m destined to be the ‘Crazy Bird Lady’, when I’m old.  But I digress….I am also going to get some ducks and a pair of geese (to help eat up some aquatic pond weeds). Oh yeah, and probably eventually some turkeys.  (!!!)  Ah well.

Not much else in farm news.  We’re constructing plans for my garden out front and trying to come up with plans for a cheap ‘hoop house’ for year round gardening.
