Oh No - she can Crow!!

Well I guess Auntie Lil will have to be called Uncle Lil....she started crowing....eeek!  Everybody told me that she was a he, since he towers over all the other chickens and bosses them around.  So we have a Rooster.  Rats.  We ordered all hens and they gave us a free one, guess which one! 

I still will call him a "hen-ster" and hopefully "he" will learn to behave!  You do not need a rooster for the hens to lay eggs by the way.  They will lay eggs anyway.  You only need a rooster if you want the eggs to be feritized and to hatch chickens.

Welcome Baby Keets!

Baby keets are little Guinea  fowl.  They were born on Tuesday …so here they are at 3 days old.  My friend Karen got some for her farm and gave us four.  We hear that they are good watch dogs for the farm and chickens; as they are loud and obnoxious.  They are so tiny compared to the baby chicks.  They are hard to tame and have a spaz fit every time we go near the brooder box.  We are handling them several times so they get used to us.  So far it is not helping!  They are so cute now….but just wait and see how funny they look when they grow up.

Turtle Creek Turtles

We spotted a couple of turtles today....they are late arrivals this year.  Normally see them around and about a month earlier.  They must have been busy.  They are Eastern Box turtles.  When we first bought the property 23 years ago we spotted several of them, some munching on the strawberries near the creeks.....that is how we named the place:  Turtle Creek Farm.
