The Barnyard

The barnyard is full again this year. Lots of rabbits to butcher for the freezer and jars. 

Some roosters from the neighboring farm that they did not want to deal with. Destined for jars.

Mama and chicks. A friend brought me these eggs and I have no idea what cross they are. I have always pretty well raised Buff Orphingtons and it seems strange to have a bunch of little black chicks pecking around. 

The puppies aren't puppies anymore! Seems like just yesterday we were bottle feeding these guys.

The young turkeys are growing like bad weeds.

These young buff hens are really pretty though. They will make great additions to my egg production.

And Moxie's favorite place to sneak to on a late summer day.

Not quite a year old yet and still quite the hand full.

She's come a long way!

  1. What a nice barnyard of animals. Hope you had a wonderful day of rest yesterday.

    We have two Golden Retrievers that turn three tomorrow. Gracee and Lody are our "at home" children (LOL).

  2. Ah, you have so many animals to tend. I won't groan at my 2 cats' demands as much. The dogs sure have become big!

  3. I loved all the photos - thanks for sharing.

  4. CQ,

    Beautiful barnyard. The puppies sure grew fast, I remember when they were first babes.

    I see plenty of birds and bunnies for the freezer this year.

  5. Your puppies sure have grown!

  6. Not a single dust bunny under that table!!!!How do you do all that you do! Seems like you do everything. You sure do inspire me. Will be back here at your wonderful post again tomorrow.
