Crazy Birds

24 May

I have a couple of birds with crazy ideas.  One of my hens has decided to be a free-range chicken.  That’s all fine and dandy until she decides to go into the yard. I’m pretty sure Sky would like to play with her. I’m also pretty sure, she would make a tasty treat for him.  So far, she’s stuck to the barnyard.

Widow Goose has decided to sit on a nest and hatch eggs.

I worked hard to fish all her eggs out from under the pen where Mama Phoenix is and get rid of them.

It didn’t stop her.  She’s now sitting on a nest beside the pen.  I don’t even know if she has an egg in it now.  I tried telling her that she hasn’t been near a gander in  months and nothing will come of sitting on those eggs, but she doesn’t care.

In case you didn’t figure it out, Mama Phoenix is still eating and doing well.  Don’t ask me how.

Again, I have no reason to share the peacocks, but they are handsome.

Beautiful Spring

11 May

After a very chilly and rainy week, our weekend is looking much better!

I was afraid the crab apple tree had been nipped by the freezing weather, but it must have just been waiting for this weekend.

When I took the pictures Friday evening, the whole thing was buzzing with tons of bees!

Happy bees!

Everyone is happier with sunshine.


Snickers likes lounging outside when the weather is good.


I have more bleeding hearts.

The kids are all growing and doing well.


I think Clark keeps getting more colors and crazy markings every time I look at him.


I have nine girls who are getting ready for June babies.


I am quite grateful for this lovely spring weekend.  Of course, I prepared this post on Friday evening when we had sun and 62ºF and it was supposed to be warm, dry and cloudy on Saturday.  Yeah.  Saturday was drizzle and cool all day long.  So much for my gratitude and a nice weather weekend.
