Photo Friday

I’m tired. Too tired to think and therefore too tired to write. But I did finally take some pictures! With my phone, not my camera. Still, it’s better than nothing, right?

These are the broiler houses. They are kind of like sleds. We hook them up to the tractor and drag them one length forward each day. Steven drove the tractor and I stood in the house to keep the chickens moving forward. Remember what I said about them being dumb? As soon as the house starte dmoving, they all fled to the back where they would have been run over and crushed!

Mobile chicken houses. We have 6 of them.

We moved the lamb up with the chickens. She seems happy enough! She’s almost off her bottle¬†which makes life easier.

The lamb is going to start thinking she's a chicken

We have two new baby lambs. They are scrawny, gangly little things. Their mother took to them so they’ve been nursing and haven’t required bottle feeding, thank goodness! Another sheep is expecting and should give birth tonight or tomorrow. We also have a pig who is due any day and the cows are all due at the end of the month.
