I was trying to make it the market this Saturday, but we have not accrued enough eggs so far.  I am planning on coming the 28th.  So we hope to see everyone then.  If you have any questions or concerns please let us know.  We are always available for a chat and you are welcome to come by the farm for any eggs emergencies.  Thanks.

Here are some pictures from last year around the farm that I never bothered to post.  I am ready for spring and some sunshine to see what new adventures and wildlife we can photograph on the farm this year.  We have lots of snakes and other predators around the farm, but the snakes are the most photogenic since the usually stay still.  All of our real predators that pose life endangering threats to our chickens are not as easy yo...

We will be heading back to the market soon.  Hopefully the weather will begin to get better and spring is just around the corner.  Our 20 layers we have left have been hard at work in the meantime.  I hope to have enough to sell at the market in a week or so.  It looks tentatively like March the 14th will be a good time to come.  Our new layers we have going up are doing great.  They are growing just fine and looking forward to...

We have had a very busy year, but one of our goals is to update you all on our progress more frequently! We have had many losses due to predator issues. We ended up losing around 80% of our animals, so this year we are hoping to rebuild and focus more on security. Our ducks had just started laying, but now we are down to one lone duck. We are hoping to order more ducks…duck eggs are so yummy! We have moved our chickens back into...

They have grown quite a bit during their time in the brood house.  It is still very cold outside for them so they are getting an extended stay in the warmth.  It won’t be long until they run out of room and need some more space out in the pasture.  We are down on chicken tractors right now and I need to build some new ones.  The new ones are going to be walk in so that getting the eggs will be easier.  So a new project loom on...

We had to order some new biddies for the upcoming year since the loss of so many last year.  We hope to breed some again this year and raise them here on the farm.  So far we have had a good success rate with our own.  Most of the ones we had were raised here.  Long term that is one of our goals to have our flock here on the from our farm.  Anyways, the new little ones are here and ready to start their time in the brood house.  It is...

I saw a double rainbow this morning while at work.  It was pretty great.  You don’t usually see two of them this good. Even better later in the afternoon at home I was able to see one again, a double one.  This has to be record of some kind.  Who gets to see a double rainbow twice in the same day at different locations.  God is great and so are His promises to us.  Take a...

I wasn’t at the market this week because Deedra was sick with pneumonia, and I needed to stay and help her with the children. My dad’s 60th birthday is coming up and my mom has planned a riverboat trip for our whole family on the 8th, so I won’t be at the market that day either. If you need eggs before then, feel free to call us and stop by to pick some up! We plan to be back on the 15th with plenty of eggs. Until...

The yard work has begun.

We have had a rough yard since we built the house.  I built the house in the middle of a field and did not build it up any.  So it was kind of low to the ground.  We have had some water problems because I never took time to grade the yard.  I have made several attempts to work on it, but time is short around here most of the time.  I am currently getting our tractor repaired and not having it makes the job of leveling the yard much...
