County Fair & New Additions

We have come a full circle and completed the county fair.  It was 5 days of camping, competing and enjoying warm Minnesota days with a full fair menu.  The kids had a good run and I even registered us correctly to compete.  The kids did receive blue ribbons for both showmanship and breed categories.  Eli was a little sad because he didn’t get a reserve champion but we had some good conversations around focusing our efforts for future years.


New Additions

I am super excited to have a great quail hatch since I lost so many of my older quail due to the racoon and fox.  I had 48 eggs and had close to 40 hatch.  They were mostly healthy and quickly becoming independent.  The chicks began hatching around 14 days and continued to hatch to 19 days.  In the second picture you can see the size difference between a early and late hatch.

I am a school administrator by day and a new hobby farmer by night. My family consists of my husband, a farmer boy at heart, and myself, a city girl learning the ropes, along with our two children. We are excited to embark on this new adventure.
