It has been rainy - which means lots of mud! I have been feeling terrible for our chickens because their fenced in area is much too muddy so I cut a very small hole in the adjacent goat fenced area so they can be among the grass. I am thinking that having the chickens scratch and eat some of the nasties might be a good thing for the goats too.
Navigating the wet and muddy path.
This spring we have six new layers - 3 Rhode Island Reds and 3 Buff Orpingtons. They should be laying by late summer which means we will have eggs this winter.
During the evening hours, the sun shines (yes it came out!) in such a way that makes everything look beautiful around our little homestead.
It seems to be feast or famine-rain or drought lately throughout the country doesn't it?ReplyDelete
Your chickens look very happy and oh, how I would love fresh eggs throughout the winter season.
Your homestead *does* look just beautiful!!! :)ReplyDelete
We've had a lot of rain too, as evident by the puppy prints througout the house right now.ReplyDelete
You have so much green there right now. It's beautiful.
Beautiful pictures. I miss having chickens, our yard is just not suitable anymore.ReplyDelete
It's a mudfest here too! Our poor chickens are pecking around in slurry part of the time, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a few dry days in a row!ReplyDelete
