November 2013

Cleaning out the photos (over a year later :-/)

Here are a few photos of fall-early winter of 2013.

Installing and painting the old pantry from the kitchen wall we tore out and re-purposing as built in storage.

Moved the wood drying shed from the orchard to the meadow and replaced the roof.
Filling in with the fallen maple from the west side.

Experimenting roasting a squash in the new woodstove.


Feels like the Holidays

The New Girls' 1st eggs 2013

The babies are all grown up now and starting to lay.

Rooster is behaving more like a "gentle-man-rooster", taking a more careful watch and learning that falling leaves are just leaves and giving the girls his tasty finds.

September 29th 2013
Someone laid a "practice" egg off the roost. Just a tiny egg with no yolk. Don't know who but I am on the watch.

Eagle laid her 1st egg today!
Her eggs are a boring grey recycled paper color. Boo.

She knew just what to do thanks to the Red chicken. (I had to teach my 1st girls where to lay the eggs.)
