We got our first batch of chicks last week. I got 5 Welsummer chicks. I love their coloring. They lay DARK chocolate brown eggs. Here is a picture of one of them.
Here are some of the chicks. There are 5 Welsummers, a Buff Orpington rooster and a Golden Buff Rooster (he has a black dot on his head).
Michael had some time off last week and we took a day trip. On the way, we took a side road to go and see this barn that we had caught a glimpse of. We never were able to get close to the barn to see it better, but we did drive right by a swamp. Michael spotted this goose on her nest. She was about 30' from the road.
Another friend traded with me and I got this milk bottle. I use these to put tinctures and herbal concoctions into. I have lids that fit them.
Joshua and Brittany bought us this bird feeder and the shepherds hook for our anniversary. It is beautiful!!
This picture really makes me think Spring. It is overcast (you know those April showers) and there are sheep and chickens and the Forsythia in bloom!!
