|First we feed the dogs and cats, and then we'll head to Mr. Hardy to feed him. |
This is Gladys. She is one talking hen. She follows us all over the
yard because she knows that I carry cracked corn in my coverall pockets
to toss to the hens.
|Look out! I hear the ducks running down the hill! They |
have heard us out and know that the chickens have a little
cracked corn snack. They will fuss until we give them some, too.
Don't you love how they waddle? I do!
|Here they come again! These guys never give up!|
|Be careful when you reach for Missie's eggs. She will peck |
the tar out of you. I usually scoop her from behind and toss her out.
You might want to wear two pairs of gloves before you
grab her eggs.. Just sayin.....
|Why don't you toss the gals the left over whole wheat couscous|
left from supper last night? They will sure enjoy the
treat! How would you like to eat traditional laying pellets
day in and day out?? They don't either....
|After we have turned the girls out, it's time to feed Hollie. She |
won't quit hollaring until she eats. Besides, it makes it easier
to clean the loafing yard and stalls if she is eating... and
the goats are grazing the mountain.
|Well.. this is the best part of farming. Poop. Tons and tons of poop. |
I'll scoop. I hate to ask you to do it on your first visit
to the farm. Watch your step!
|Well! Look what we found while we were cleaning the stalls! |
It looks like some gals didn't like sharing the nesting boxes
with Missie! Take a peek around the stable. You might find more!
|Don't suppose you have more feed in yoru pocket?|
Thanks for dropping by today to help feed. We have a lot more to do, but you are looking tired and, well, I am starving! Remember your boots! It's nasty out there!
