something for everyone

Sonrisa is constantly curled up outside.

Champ is happier than a pig in sh--.

Lelu found a nap.
Peaches and Champ wore themselves out.
Pookie and her grandkids would love to run the lot... soon.

Daisy is just happy with all the grazing.

Under the cloak of darkness...

We piled all 22 hens into the back of the car. They woke up in their familiar coop. Later that day a crew helped us set up the chicken run and they were back to their dust baths and scratching in no time. No break in egg production!!!

Poor Copper had free rein roam the quarter acre a couple of nights on his own, clearing the garden greens left behind. He was our very last load and our farewell to Portland Street!

Annie Oakley's first freshening

And one short month later...

Annie Oakley gave us her first set of twins, both boys! The white and tan one is "Harley" and has been sponsored to stay with our herd. His gorgeous outlaw brother is "Buffalo Bill".

Earlier this spring...

The Wish We Had Acres herd gave us our first girls!! Born in the ides of March...
