Around the farm

We have been so busy since the snow melted, it's amazing how full a day can be. Truckin' Man has been trying to divide his time between trucking, farming, and the "honey do" list. Poor guy...  So much work, so little time. We hired an amazingly ambitious 15 year old young man to help out around the farm, and it is soooo nice having his help. We are making a little headway.

First project up for this year was a new chicken coop.  
Truckin' Man didn't want to buy a pre-built one, all though he says next time he will!

My dad even stopped to supervise for a little while.

Instead of picking out chicks at the local farm supply store, this year we ordered them from a hatchery. They arrived in the mail on May 20th. Best mail I have ever received!

Here we are at about three weeks old.

 We have 14 little ones. A variety of breeds.

 I am so excited to see everyone of them grow!


  1. They are so cute. I just love photo 5!! So cute walking down. :-)

  2. Oh my goodness!!!!! I wish you could have heard the squeals of delight when my girls saw these pics!!!!! Love them!!!! Busy girl :)
