Baby chicks

The third batch of baby chicks arrived on Monday morning. Now that Denver is allowing people to own some backyard chicks, I've been selling month old pullets like crazy. Could probably sell all I have except then that would defeat my purpose of keeping more laying hens for more eggs to sell.
However, I'm considering ordering one more batch of chicks for August. So if you live in the area and have been considering backyard chickens and would be interested in 4 or 5 let me know ASAP so I can order them. This late in the season the variety of breeds is not as large, however I should be able to get 2 or 3 different heavy heritage breed, brown egg layers.

Solar and Lunar eclipses

In ancient times solar or lunar eclipses and full moons were thought to be times of great power. Now days most of us don't even think twice about them except emergency rooms often prepare for extra people and veternarians prepare for more animal emergencies.
We've been hit with a triple dose this month. If you weren't keeping track there was a partial solar eclipse on June 1, a full lunar eclipse AND full moon on June 15 and this week another solar eclipse on July 1st. Have things been a bit off for you lately? It's been bazaar around here particularly with the goats.

Kids and kittens

Their names are Sapphire, Galena, Topaz and Ruby. They were born on April 24 and the mom, Midnight, brought them out from their nest under the tool box on Memorial Day weekend. There are two gray ones and two black ones, and I think a maleand a female of each color.
