Barn Happiness

Things always seem to come back to perspective when you spend some time back in the barn.  We have lots of little highlights that have been happening lately.  Here are a few:

  • The baby chick’s are as big as the rest of the hens.  Ringo has plenty of action.
  • Bob attacks Ringo if he goes after Lahaina.  The humorous part is Ringo is still scared of Bob.
  • Some of the baby chick’s or hens are beginning to lay.  They are about 21 weeks.  They have found a small area under the goat feeder to lay.
  • One of the chick’s laid one of the smallest eggs we have ever seen.
  • We have the neighborhood cat, Oliver, pretty much as a permanent fixture around the barn.  We officially purchased cat food.
  • Marilyn is still broody.  I have now begun to call her crazy lady since she growls at you if you come near her.  Which we are going into months now.
  • The garden has been a big success.  Sunflowers are blooming and sweet corn will be ready soon.
  • Ringo continues to be a stinker and try to kick you when you are not watching.  We are trying hug therapy with little success.  He may be heading to the dinner table soon.
  • The small bantams have found a new roost in the ceiling.

And lastly, Loki has continued to limp and ball up his feet but lately has begun to walk on his foot correctly.
