Naughty Nugget

10 Sep

I was really happy to get the ten new hens for the farm.

Unfortunately, Nugget seemed to have  a problem with a couple of them.  I had to return two white chickens.

Then he went after the buff one.  It was shut in the pen for its own safety until I could get it back to my nephew.

I don’t know why Nugget hated these three.  He loves the rest of them.

My only thought is that they might have been roosters.  It would be odd that I managed to get the roosters when they caught them, but while the buff one was shut in, I got eggs from all the girls.

Well, except my two old ladies.  They just don’t bother laying eggs anymore.

And there was not an egg with the buff one shut in the pen.  I guess time will tell if Nugget knew something we didn’t, or if he was just being a jerk to those girls.  Luckily, he seems to like everyone else.

Hide and Go Seek Hen

11 Jul

I couldn’t find my little phoenix hen.  I was really worried because of all the issues I’ve had with predators.  I found her though!

This explains why I haven’t found many eggs lately.  I thought it was because I started shutting them in at night.

Holy moly!  There’s sixteen eggs under there.  Only four of them are hers.

Great.  I wonder how many are roosters.

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

Signs of Spring

22 Feb

We saw more record warm weather today.  It’s really looking like spring.  It’s normal to see kids with their maa out in pasture this time of year.

It’s not unusual for the chickens to start laying with the longer days.

I can see the sun set more to the west rather than in the southwest corner of the farm.

These are all pretty normal for this time of year.  But the grass is not supposed to be green.

The magnolia tree is not supposed to be getting ready to bloom.

The goats should not be losing their winter coats.

It makes me nervous for what the coming spring and summer will bring for weather.

I hope you’ll consider joining me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items at the top of my side bar.
