Temporarily Back from a Self-Inflicted Hiatus

Temporarily Back from a Self-Inflicted Hiatus

I was thinking this morning. And I was thinking that it’s been a while since I posted anything on here that has anything to do with anything chicken. So I thought to myself, “Why not post something?” Myself thought it was a good idea, and here’s a post.

 

I was out photographing the other day at the “farmette” and got some (in my opinion) quite lovely photos of a few hens, some of my mother’s flowers, and a cute one of my sister’s Jersey x Dexter heifer. I figured I’d share them with y’all.

Newly Arrived!

This morning we welcomed the newest member of our farm, a Jersey heifer!

 

I was able to video the birth as well. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=znzw0EpU50w

We haven’t quite decided on a name… But tonight we narrowed it down to four: Gerta, Holly, Liza, and Mabel.

She’s just so stinkin’ adorabe!!

Photo Friday a day late

Yes… I’m a day late with my Photo Friday. But hey, as long as it’s posted and close to Friday, that’s ok, right? ;)

Photo Friday (and a video)

This possessive little hummer sat there for ages, watching the feeder.

The rutabagas are up!

It’s a beet! (I think…)

 

Potatoes are lookin’ good!

 

This is one of the tomatoes we started from seed. It’s rather pitiful.

 

By comparison, here’s one we bought at the flower shop…

 

A ripening strawberry…

 

Petunias in the hydrant bed…

 

Icarus, my one and only male guinea…

 

Daisy Mae…

 

Relaxing…

 

Happy First Birthday to Hamilton, the steer!

 

Valentine, Jersey/Holstein heifer

 

Clover

Nutty

 

Clotilde

 

Juliette

Iris… “Whatchya got therrr??”

 

And again…

 

Raindrop… She’s decided to join the army and her first step was to take on camo. Lookin’ good…

 

I’m bunny sitting!

Penelope…

 

Lovitchka (Lova for short)…

 

“Hey… Don’t look now, but she’s got the camera pointed right at you…”

 

She’s just so darn cute….. <3

 

Wishing there was no wire… See that sad little frown?

 

I adore rabbits’ eyes. <3

 

This is what my guineas thought of them:

 

I found a perfect daisy.

 

Sunshine! (And jet streams.)

 

And then the chickens were very sad that I was leaving, so they tried coming with me.

 

And here’s a short video of my guinea Aspen buckwheating. Only female guineas can make this noise.
