How, you may ask, do you get four eggs in one day when you only have 3 chickens?
You bring home more chickens!
We brought 5 new hens home Saturday afternoon. 3 rhode island reds and 2 ameraucanas.
Things are a little tense right now between the old and new chicken tribes.
There have been a couple of confrontations, but so far no injuries, so I’m hopeful that with a little time things will settle out. (fingers crossed)
On the sheep front, I finally got Edgar and Chone tidied up-
And got a start on Felix, who is now a partially white sheep again!
He was actually being pretty cooperative and I probably could have finished his haircut Saturday, but we had to break off to go and collect the new chickens. Was nice to get a little quality time with Felix, because he’s kind of a shy guy. And such a sweet soft fleece!
In knitting news, Classic Oak cardigan is blocking now, and I hope to start assembling sometime this week.
So far, so good!
