Restoring Order…

20171125_164813

Well isn’t that a fine how do ya do! Here I told ya I was back, only to wind up having disappear again!

Turns out that after working away from the homestead, I found oodles of work to do!

One project in particular was dealing with a broken fence, out behind the barn!

Of course it was cold and raining… and, I wound up with a cold that knocked me off my feet for several weeks!

That’s what I get for working on the fence in the cold, cold rain!

Well, I’m here again. Not at 100%, but better than I was…

The littles must know I’m not at my best, becauseĀ the boys’ have been quite the handful lately!

‘EggHead’ and his brothers kept jumping over the broken fence…

Their 6 sisters following after them!

More than once our neighbors had to shoo our gang down to our place!

Thankfully they are understanding…

Especially since their Guinea hens like to come down and visit our boys on occasion.

Guess its a case of the grass being greener…

Now that I’m on the mend, its back to work…

Egghead, up to his usual shenanigans, started quite a ruckus, while scratching in our old tomato bed, near the back door of our house…

Out of the blue, ‘Egghead’ let out such a terrible screech. His brothers and sisters joined the screeching and took flight – in my direction!

I thought for sure that I was in the middle of an Alfred Hitchcock movie!

As I raised my arms in protection, the gang flew past me heading to a pile of skids where the flock like a to hang out.

Thankful that my eyes weren’t plucked out, I continued to watch the actions of the babies. Turns out that 3 of the boys tried to hump 1 of our hens at the same time!

I knew then that it was time to remove the boys from the flock.

They were not happy about being moved to the confines of the barn… but at least there is order once more…

The girls are feeling more comfortable with only 1 rooster -Teriyaki (Terry) – in charge!

Until next time,

Desperate for change, I left the city behind and moved to the country... I am obsessed with raising chickens, old barns and cooking from scratch. Welcome to my homestead!
