I hope you've had a great week.
Did you figure out what we use all the poo for? If you thought that we use it in the garden, you're right. We have so much poo that we share it with other families that want it for their garden's, too.
Would you like to meet some new animals?
I thought so!
|This is Storm.|

We don't usually name our chickens. Our friends are moving and so they gave us all their chickens because they can't take them to their new house. That's so sad!
These two chickens are really friendly! I love the fluffy feathers on their heads. They are Polish chickens. Chickens have different breeds just like dogs.
|Do you see the cage wall? It's about half-way back in the chicken coop.|
Chickens aren't very smart, either. Once the old chickens wake up with the new chickens in the back two or three times they think the new chickens are part of the same flock. Then the old chickens won't pick on or beat up the new chickens.
|We have new ducks, too!|
Can you see the difference between the two ducks? What things are the same, and what things are different?
|Annie was born 25 March 2010.|
Misty was born 26 March 2011.
River and Serenity were born 9 April 2016.
|Echo was born 10 February 2014.|
She had her first calf on 25 April 2016.
We like having animals because most children don't get to see what farm animals are like. Our neighbor children love to come over and visit the animals. Pre-schools, scouts, Activity Day girls, and families love to visit the farm, too. We love being able to share what we do with other people.
I have layers of winter clothing on so it doesn't hurt.
|Here's a fun picture of Stew!|
His coat is so thick that he doesn't mind being out in the snow.
