In the Coop

23 Nov

The birds are all doing well.

I’m not sure I can tell dad and baby apart anymore.  I might be able to next year when they get their tails grown out.  Dad’s should still be longer.

Nugget is still nice to me.  I did ask my niece, and she said that none of the birds Nugget hated turned out to be roosters, so I have no idea why he was determined to kill those three.

Nugget

This is the Easter egg hen (in front).  She gives me pretty mint green eggs.

It’s nice to be home on Thanksgiving break, so I can see the chickens.  They are ususally rooster by the time I get home to do chores.  The one below is a Dominique.

The two geese are doing well.  My old man gander is much happier when the goose is not on a nest. He much prefers to have her hanging out with him.

I hope he makes it through the winter and she can actually hatch a couple goslings next summer.  She wouldn’t like to be the only goose on the farm.

Ice Challenges

27 Feb

I will say the ice adds challenges to doing chores.  Everything is more difficult (including not getting knocked down by the dog).

One that that is really more challenging is letting the birds in and out.

My door freezes shut.  Even when I think I have the mud and muck scooped away, the ground swells when it freezes, and it’s a challenge.

Gander, Peacock, and hen

They’ve been frozen in a couple of days, and I’m afraid my door isn’t going to make it through the winter/spring.
