Just Some Critters

19 Jun

Here are some of the critters from the last week or so.  Aurora is looking much better now that her fleece is growing out.


I can’t believe my baby Myson turned eight in March.  How is the whole herd getting so old?

My older lady goose is sitting on the nest.  I was a bit worried when she decided to sit with that open wire behind her.  A raccoon could easily grab her.

So I closed the door, and when it scared her, she stepped off the nest.  Luckily there is only about eight or ten eggs in the nest.

Aurora again.  She has been really sweet lately and giving lots of kisses.

My peacock is looking pretty handsome.  I obviously need to clean out their area though.

Seven is such an adorable baby.  He makes me laugh.  He is ornery and funny and hard to catch, but as soon as you pick him up, he’s a snuggler.


Archie is growing and doing well.  He really is striking with the black and white and silvery tan!


Somehow, Popcorn got left in the barnyard again so I walked him down to the herd in the Back Forty.  He’s a good kid, sticking close to his maa.


Stitch and Purl are growing.  I go out several times a day to pet and cuddle Purl.

It’s working!  She’s a sweetie.

Sky still sits on the couch and in the chair like this. He’s finally getting to a point where I can go outside and he doesn’t think he has to come too.  He’s enjoying lounging in the air conditioning.  Wimp.

What a goof.

The Last Batches of the Season

22 Aug

I am surprised at  how many baby birds I am hearing out in the barn this late in the season.

There are two nests full of baby barn swallows.

I have to believe these will be the last batches of the season.

Mom was certainly keeping a close eye on her babies.

And me.

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.
