I think almost everyone liked the fresh apple cider. That makes me happy because we spend a lot of time picking all the apples, loading the truck to drive to school, setting up the press, and pressing the apples for you to taste the apple cider.
I thought you would like a video of the grinder at work so we took one the next day when we were helping our friends and neighbors make cider.
|This is what the inside of the grinder looks like.|
|Do you see all the feathers?|
Chickens don't lay very many eggs when they are molting. We used to get between 12-18 eggs a day. Now we are only collecting 6-8 eggs a day.
Here is a fun slow motion video of a mother hen and her chick drinking some old goat milk. Old milk is a favorite treat for our chickens. It also provides some extra protein for chickens to grow new feathers.

I thought you would like to see the Tom turkeys strutting around the yard. They puff out their feathers so they look bigger. The black turkeys are the ones that were born this spring. One of them likes to roost up in the tree at night. The tan turkey is their father.
|Ewwww, yuck! Eye boogers!|
I liked the part where Quin was climbing on top of the log pile!
