A Farm Update

Remember these guys? They’ve gone from this…

To this…

Here they are at about 3 weeks old

This little butterball, which is an Ameraucana, now looks like this.

There’s still a very big size difference between the regular sized chicks and the bantam.

Regular chick on the left and bantam on the right. The bantam is actually about a week or 10 days older than the other.

And this Blue Laced Red Wyandotte that I hatched now looks like this. I cannot wait to see this girl fully grown.

I wish I could tell you there was exciting things going on with the goat house construction, but we have had relentless rain the entire week so there is absolutely nothing new to report. The carpenter’s are working in their shop making the frames for the small windows and hopefully they’ve started on the storage cabinet for the goat house as well. We had our framing inspection on Tuesday and that got approved without a problem. As soon as the rain stops they can start with putting the interior walls up and the exterior siding and roof.

They cannot finish that up and start the chicken coop fast enough for me. I’ve got chicks busting out all over the place here and I need a bigger coop!!

Oh, and this is what happens when you let your goats roam free around your yard all day. Your ornamental trees get a little bare on the bottom. I can’t wait for that fence to get built either!
