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.

Happy Birds

Look!  I really do give the geese nice clean cool water.

It’s just that they get it dirty so fast I can hardly ever get photographic evidence.

They do enjoy the pool. Of course, they also enjoy the old dirty water I dump out of the pool.

I have all the doors and windows in their section of the barn that I can opened to help let a breeze through.

One of the new little hens is enjoying a real dirt bath.  She doesn’t have to do that in the food anymore.

Of course, the free range chicken is happy with her freedom.  Seriously, I can’t figure out why she’s the only one who comes out.

Since we turned so hot so quickly, I also brought out a gallon of frozen tomatoes for them.

At the end of the season last year I was so sick of tomatoes that I just froze several gallons so the birds could have a cold treat on hot days.

They seem to appreciate it.  Luckily, after today, we’re supposed to have more seasonal temperatures.
