Ameraucanas At Work

We had a short time of winter weather that didn’t want you to hibernate and we had a great suprise of having multiple blue eggs.  After doing some investigation, we were excited that the 3 youngest ameraucanas are laying their first eggs.  They are laying between the laying boxes, hay manager and dresser so it really is a egg hunt to figure out how many we got for the day.  This also means they are officially hens and receive names.

One Last Pig Visitor

The pig’s butcher date has arrived and as I was feeding them their last bag of feed I ran into a little visitor near the water.  It was already dark and I discovered we had possum in the pen.  The pigs smelled it but didn’t do much, similarly the possum stayed out of their way.

Here is a picture of the trio at 6 months before we head to the butchers.
