What was old is new again!

When we moved here there was an old hutch down in the cellar.I expect at one time it was in the kitchen and was removed to make more room.I've been using it for my pickles,jams,etc but have wanted to fix it up a bit for quite some time.Now that Geof is retired he has more time.....it's just getting him to do these little jobs.It's been on the veranda for weeks! FINALLY!!!! He put a new back on it.....as you will see it didn't have one,tightened it up a bit and I painted it. I'm pretty happy with it.


New Back

 All my goodies
 Jams and Jellies
Peaches and plums

Rosemary and Mrs.Dash have been keeping me guessing as to who is actually laying.....until today.I finally caught Rosemary in the the nesting box. Mrs.Dash has a pretty bib of yellowish feathers and it definetly wasn't her in there today.

Oh Happy Day!

All the hens have been together for a week and are doing quite well.I had thought there may be some trouble but all in all not to bad.
Of course pretty boy was overwhelmed with all these new cute chicks shaking their tail feathers....72 in total he'd be feathers up in a matter of days!! LOL So today I mixed it up good and added three more roosters to the coop.

Here is a picture of two of the lucky boys,they have been courting through the chicken wire for weeks.LOL Of course the outsiders are trying their best to show us they deserve to be on the "inside" as well.LOL They will be heading to a farm on Ward Mountain.

They are both very colourful with little specs of black on their tails....no names yet.The other one of the trio is black.

Rain Rain Go Away!!

I don't know about you but I've had my fill of all this rain,please turn off the tap now! LOL

The chickens don't seem to mind....lots of worms!!

 The old bunkhouse looks pretty soggy.
 This usually floods in the spring....It has never flooded in the fall and I don't think I have seen it this high before.This is on the way to the back field looking back.
 My barn is getting wet!! LOL Geof just brought these logs out the other day.
 What is normally a babbling brook.LOL This is at the end of our driveway.
 For the next 6 months' we are actually visible from the road.
