Quick Work

After a short day at work, I was able sneak home and out to the barn for a couple of quick things that still needed to be done. I hung the quail pens to have a place for the little quail chicks after they leave the brooder. The chickens have been using it for their roost so it needs a little cleaning first.

The newest addition to the mini farm is a new buck Flemish Giant. The last one committed suicide by jumping right into a cats mouth one night. Maybe this one will be a little smarter. His three girl friends are twice his size right now but I am sure he wont mind.

The outlook for work this weekend is not good. The wife said she wants to go out tonight and then tomorrow will be spent spending time with the mothers. We will see what happens.

  1. I just spent the past 2 hours of my employers money reading all of your posts after stumbling upon your site from the Pioneer Living website. And after reading every word, all I can say is I'm jealous. You, my friend, have found the peace and contentment I have been looking for. I am almost 42 yrs old, live on 5 acres w/ a pond and have not done one single thing I had planned. No chickens, no goats, nothing. And I have 3 boys that think life is all about video games and that hard work is picking up pine cones so I can mow grass. Please keep your updates coming. Your posts have really lit a fire under my butt. I can't wait to get home.
