Ok, so I’ve noticed that my posts tend to ramble quite a bit from where they begin. What starts out as a focused query or comment on a specific topic or situation quickly seems to digress into random updates, an entirely different topic or such forth. Sure, a few threads have managed to stay on topic, but that seems to be the exception for me, not the rule! So I figure here’s as good a place as any to summarize where I’m at, what I’m doing with my flock, and all the chicken ventures and adventures I seem to be embarking on. I plan on sharing photos of my Chickens, their tractors and coops (once I can get to building one... again, long story there). You can also probably expect to see some cows, some general pictures of our Farm, and I’ll probably whine a bit about building our house as well ( I will expect anyone still around when I’m finally done building it to join me in a toast with their preferred beverage!) Please bear with me for a brief catch up to what’s brought me to this point and some slightly dated photos of my Flock up til now... then I can get going with some real-time updates. Here is my current problem child “Chickie Hawk” originally named ‘chickie chickie’ by a friends little girl (4). Reason I’m holding him (he’s actually quite well restrained and not in striking distance of my face) is because it’s the only way to get the hay out without him attacking us.
