These guys were butts today. I couldn't get a thing done around them and Larry got out 3 times. Luke just talked and spit at me...yay goats!

Caught the bearded lady with her goat posse. Hawk hasn't laid any pretty blue eggs since November.

It has been dark, wet, and gloomy these past few days. But you couldn't tell miss piggy that. She loves it all, except the bitter cold. Just a couple hundred pounds of love.

The peaceful moment before Larry decided to see if Cleo's ear was edible or not. Well that's why you're behind the fence Larry. 🐐🐱

Love having places like this right down the road. Even on a gloomy day a nice walk around here will always help clear your mind.

Feeding the raptors a treat, then the dog wanted some, and then the goat.  The boards on the ground outline the future coop and run I'll hopefully be building this spring.

Just a few more cold spells to go through before we plant all these babies. Cucumber, tomatoes, peppers, cantaloupe, and some others I forgot!

Daisy the only white egg layer we have so far. She's the best forager out of the flock.

"We have inspected the compost, it is doing well. But I suggest more egg shells please" Annabelle gives me the brown chicken report daily.

This girl is slowly becoming one of my favorites. She needs a ditzy name for her random antics. Happy Sunday.

Fire! Just some controlled burning of last year's garden, getting the ground ready for the seedlings we have growing. Scroll over for more fire, and to see what it looks like after. Plus Luke inspecting some planting.

We were blessed to have a slightly warmer day today to be able to do some garden prepping. Chicken helpers included of course. Penny, where did your leg go?

Betty and Annabelle found some unfrozen water to drink after foraging. Poor Betty is molting during all this cold and now she just looks regular sized instead of being the biggest of the flock. Still getting at least 2 eggs a day.

Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right! I always have extra eyes helping me watch the chickens and goats around here.

It was our last nice day to enjoy outside before the bitter cold sets in for a while. Hawk is glaring at the frizzle chick before she chased it away. Poor little peeps. Covered both chicken areas up from the wind and cold hoping everyone stays warm this NYE

Luke and Larry enjoying some ripe leaves apparently. There are many stumps around the property from the previous owners trimming, but we try to leave enough for new limbs to grow. 🍃

Jack Sparrow does not need a filter to show off his pretty feathers. He's a man of fashion and will go after you if you're wearing the wrong pants.
