Life on the farm is always changing and always exciting. The hens having just started laying eggs, have now decided that their quite large and roomy cages are just not sufficient for their needs, so they’ve started laying eggs right out in the open in their yard!!! I went to a lot of trouble to give them a nice, clean, full-of-hay, very large and roomy cages in which to lay eggs and even provided a nice ladder for them to climb to get in there, and of all things I had to grab my newly laid egg right from under the noses of the guineas!!!! I was NOT about to let them get MY egg! I paid for that egg!! 🙂
I recently sheared one of my new babies from my first Red Satin Angora litter. Take a look at that wool!!!!! I had 4 of them to shear. They are lovely! Two of them are fawn colored, one is black and one is brown, sure makes for delicious dreams of spinning their wool!
So, in between all this, I am working on the website too: http://jacsoriginals.com/the-ol-homestead.html and hoping to
have more traffic to the site soon. Our first newsletter is on it’s way to being published, stop by and sign up! Y’all have a great day and remember to stop and smell the roses along the way!
