Getting the good stuff!
On the chicken front, we have been getting 6 eggs a day with an occasional double yolker, still not sure which chicken lays it, but thank you very much! We do have one chicken that has become broody, so is sitting on 11 eggs currently. We should be watching them start to hatch around the 29th of this month. I am so excited. We can definitely use more layers as we seem to be going through the 6 eggs a day pretty easily. If there are roosters in the new hatching ones, they will be raised as broilers and harvested.
We have sold all but the red buck. He is being weaned and is a little noisy to say the least. He hangs out with Gus now, but likes to go rest next to the fence next to Phoebe, his mama.
Planted all the free trees we got at the Mother Earth News Fair. Quaking Aspen, Vine Maple and Alaskan Yellow Cedar. Put them right inside the fence of the garden and then will transplant for sure when we decide where we would like them.
Going out to sit by the fire now on the front porch and drink some blackberry wine mom got!
