We've been busy - life has been overwhelming at times with all the stuff going on here at the farm. I've taken things to a new level and published a new web site www.littlerascalsfarm.com and have started posting there.

Melody gave birth to two doelings last week and everyone is doing fine! The babies are already running up and down the pasture causing havoc everywhere they go!!! The milk is all going to the babies right now, but I do manage to sneak in a cup or less sometimes so I can put it in my coffee...YUM!!

How do you turn a pile of eggs into laying chickens?
These are all mixed breed, we seem to have a name for taking chickens when no one else wants them - either because they realize they aren't as cool as they first thought, or they don't have time anymore, or the kids who swore they'd take care of them decided that they wouldn't and Mom decides to find a better home! We've got Black Ostralop (sp), Wyandott, WeilSummer, Buff Orpington, Americauna, some white ones I don't know the name of, some Egyptians, Morans. (they lay chocolate colored eggs)..and a few more!
