Things are getting back to normal since I returned from Germany. It’s a cold and blustery day here. Bernie and I bundled up and went outside to get the heater bases set up for the chicken and turkey waterers. I actually remembered to take my camera and get a few pictures to share with you.
Mirrie and Georgia were happy to see us. They are getting so big.
We’re finally fairly convinced we did indeed end up with one tom and two hens – even if the tom ended up being one we thought was a hen, and the hen ended up being one we thought was a tom. As a result, two of them got renamed. Jake is on the left (he used to be called Tanya) and on the right is Loretta (she used to be called Hank).
That’s Loretta on the left, Jake in the middle, and Sarah on the right:
It’s hard to believe how much they’ve grown. You may be able to get a good idea from this picture with Bernie’s legs in it:
This is Pretty Boy Floyd – the cockerel I kept from the hatch in May:
My poor hens are finally starting to come out of their molt. These two are the last of the molters, and just starting to get feathers in again:
This is one of the pullets from the May hatch – I love her coloring:
Bernie got a nice fire going in our new wood burner this afternoon.
Elvis kept warm by laying in the sun, across from the wood burner.
And Priscilla staked out her favorite hiding place on top of the curio.
And Diesel enjoyed relaxing in the warmth of his bed.
Dolly has always enjoyed chilling in my chair, but since my trip to Germany I think she’s gotten just a little too comfortable in it.
It’s nice to be home and back with Bernie and all the critters. I missed them.
