Unpleasantry is putting it nicely. I must say that the pleasantries outweigh the unpleasantries but there is one unpleasantry that is not something that I wanted to deal with, but was forced to this morning. I started out with 4 laying hens. And as they became familiar with their new home they started roosting in the lower branches of the trees Continue reading
I have my own hens now. My sister gave me 4 of her hens. White ones – specifically Leghorns or to me “the ladies” or “whities”. Now that I know what type of hen they are I can find out more about them. Anyways, it’s been interesting learning about their habits. They were trained to go in the coop by themselves at dusk.

There’s also 3 cats and a dog, but they stick more to the house.
Here is a little video of what you find on our little mini farm!
I think I will enjoy living here and taking care of all the animals (the days I don’t have class). Although, I do need to invest in a good pair of rubber boots or something instead of wearing my Sister’s every time I go out to the mini farm.
I didn’t see any eggs on the counter when I cam home today, so I better go check and see if there are any out there!
