Dwindling Bird Population

9 Feb

I have very few birds left on my farm.  I have the two peacocks.  Both of my hens were really old and have succumbed to the crazy weather.

I’ve lost more geese to the coyotes.  I finally got the remaining six into the chicken coop.   It’s too small of a space, but it’s the only way I can protect them right now.

Sadly, there’s plenty of room for birds in the coop because I’ve lost more hens.

I think I finally have taken care of the predators, but I only have nine hens (and the three nasty roosters) left.

It’s been a bit disheartening not to be able to keep my birds safe.

I do hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s list at the top of my side bar.

Evidence Suggests

19 Jan

When I went through the barn the other day, I noticed a feather in the fifty gallon water tub.

If I were a betting person, I would bet I had a white and gray gander taking a bath in my tub…again.

Luckily, it looks like we’ll have good weather this weekend for emptying and scrubbing all my water tubs.

I do hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt tomorrow.  I have this week’s items listed at the top of my side bar.

Geese Like Treats Too

17 Jan

When I gave my yard goats pumpkin the other day, I also put one in the barnyard for the geese.

They were happy about that.

When the goats came back up from pasture, Casey was quick to find the leftovers!

I helped little Ava find it too.

I think she liked it!

I really need to give them some more.
