Four Egg Day

September 16, 2012 at 8:14 pm 6 comments

How, you may ask, do you get four eggs in one day when you only have 3 chickens?


You bring home more chickens!




We brought 5 new hens home Saturday afternoon. 3 rhode island reds and 2 ameraucanas.

Things are a little tense right now between the old and new chicken tribes.
There have been a couple of confrontations, but so far no injuries, so I’m hopeful that with a little time things will settle out. (fingers crossed)

On the sheep front, I finally got Edgar and Chone tidied up-



And got a start on Felix, who is now a partially white sheep again!


He was actually being pretty cooperative and I probably could have finished his haircut Saturday, but we had to break off to go and collect the new chickens. Was nice to get a little quality time with Felix, because he’s kind of a shy guy. And such a sweet soft fleece!

In knitting news, Classic Oak cardigan is blocking now, and I hope to start assembling sometime this week.


So far, so good!

    The chickens will settle down. There’s a pecking order that must be established and then everything will be OK.
    Love the sheep. They always look so content. Wish I had some.
    That sweater is beautiful. What an accomplishment!

    Beautiful work Denise.
    I can tell by your pictures that you are an organized and very tidy person!

      Thanks Jody. (The Man got a good chuckle out of your “organized and tidy” observation. Says I’ve got ya’ll fooled pretty good)

    Congrats on the new chickens. Can’t wait to see what the sweater looks like all put together.

      Thanks Keith. Yeah, I can’t wait to see the sweater done either. Getting pretty close now!
