Well we lost our first chicken today. One of our Ameracuanas. I can't tell my mom yet... My sister passed the night before last and this will be another blow for her. I just can't do it.

I found her in the coop making me think either one of the older ones pecked her to death or maybe she was trampled..
The other young one seems to be doing fine with the others so I think she'll be okay.

Jericho could tell I was wonky this morning. Had to work a bit to make him stand calmly for his morning food. He tried pushing me off he hay but I'm in no mood to be pushed.

The best teacher is always the horse.

I'm sorry. No matter how many chickens you have or for how long, losing one always hurts.

Looking for something new to try with your feathered friends?

Here's the chicks! They're a little more than a month old, since they got here 8-19-17. Goofy little things are still getting their feathers.

Video of feeding time:



And this is the only one that has their dad's feet feathers.


And...chick hawk!

No matter how much you think you know about horses, there will always be one that'll come along and teach you something new.

Babies turn 5 months this weekend and we're still pondering the question of whether Roofus is a girl or a boy- opinions?



If he's a girl, does that mean I have to rename him Roofie!?

Otherwise the babies are doing lots of exploring...including places they don't belong!


..and learning about big girl chicken things like sunbathing...

I haven't caught any of them in a nest box nor seen any obvious tiny first eggs, but a couple of them do look like they're ready.

And the big girls are also enjoying these warm fall days.


I never get tired of chicken sunbathing pictures!
