It was so much fun to meet you all last week! I will post some photos of cider pressing next week. Your teacher did a great job taking a picture of each class so I'm sure you'll be able to find yourself in one of the photos next week.
This week I want to introduce you to a few of the other animals that live at Welcome Home Farm.
|Here is Matt and his dog, Miles. |
His name is Miles because he has 'miles of smiles.'
He is always happy!
|Miles reminds us of Dug from the movie, "Up!" |
He loves everyone he meets,
and he has a big, black nose.
|Do you think they look alike?|
|Here are the chicks that were born on 15 September. |
They are starting to get their wing feathers. How many chicks do you see?
|Do you see the pile of feathers in the corner?|
The mama turkey is molting. That means she is shedding her summer feathers and getting warmer winter feathers. The chickens are doing the same thing.
|Look how big the turkey chicks are growing!|
They aren't very smart so we have to keep them in the stall so they don't hurt themselves.
Last week one of the turkey chicks jumped into a bucket of water and drowned.
|Can you see the hen inside this box? She is sitting on eggs and they are going to hatch soon!|
|One first grader asked if we have any sheep on our farm.|
We have one, and his name is Stew. He's very friendly and loves to follow me around when I'm in the barnyard!
