Next Generation

Meet Zombie (on the left) and Nugget (on the right)
the new additions to the flock.
They are Golden laced Wyandottes
and will look like this when grown
And yes, 
they were named by a 6 year old boy.

RIP Scrawny Chicken

Matilda the buff in the back left
About two weeks ago, 
my mother asked if I had counted the chickens.
Immediately, I knew I'd be missing someone.
Turns out there was a pile of orange feathers near the barn
and I was missing a buff orpington.
While sad that I lost a chicken,
it at least was the scrawny one named Matilda
and not Bertha who has personality in droves.

“Cats are smarter than dogs. You can't get eight cats to pull a sled through snow.”
~Jeff Valdez quotes

The first real snow of the winter is headed our way!
