*** New Arrivals ***

Sometimes accidents happen, because if we did it right, we wouldn’t call ourselves the Accidental Farmer, at all.
I wake up this morning and head out to feed our animals, and what do I see?  

A lovely new flock has appeared where there were none before. We now have fourteen new chicks to add to our collection. 

You see, we already have sixteen young adult layers complete with two roosters, that we keep in our back yard. Then we have the two pesky boys that we keep confined – because they love to pick on the lone survivor of our meat chickens from about three years ago, so we keep those two boys penned up. We have “The Waffle House” which is a retirement home for our oldest chickens to live  out their days in peace away from trouble of everyday life. There are about seven hens together with Waffles (the oldest rooster we have). Then we have two more roosters and about nine  or ten hens “free-ranging” around the rest of the yard.

Apparently one of the hens had snuck off and hatched out a clutch of chicks without us even knowing she was missing.

So here we have a whole new generational collection. LoL

*** We were lucky this time; the last time a hen disappeared, and then reappeared with chicks, we couldn’t capture her or her clutch and one by one those chicks disappeared never to be seen again, even though, the mama did return. This time, we were able to capture them all and put them away for safe keeping.
~ so ends day one. 😉

About Kenneth T.

My blog, My way Welcome to a little piece of my life. Here you will find things concerning my everyday experiences and or my thoughts on everyday happenings. For instance you may find thoughts of my Farmstead, which is as my wife calls it, our Accidental Farming life. Perhaps on a whim, I might just jump on a soap box about what's going on with my crazy family (the immediate one, that is).~You don't need to put a penny in the coin slot for any commentary there~ You may find, new additions to what I call "Hobby-time". Ahh yes, my hobby... I make pinback buttons (some call them badges). Sorry for the shameful plug ;-) *** And then there is the outside the box or "Offtrack" thinking, part of me. Which can be anything else from aliens to the zoology of the Loch Ness monster, but will probably be more mundane as health concerns, for instance, to vaccinate or not. Is the Earth Flat or is it Hollow? Is there a dome? Is any of it real? Do you really want to know? Police brutality and the continuing corruption of established government, Big Business, Big Oil, Big Brother. Can we survive? Should we survive? The coming montrary collapse. There is so much going on, more then we see outside our windows.
