Those Sneaky Chicks! Confessions From The Coop (TM)

Well, it finally happened. We finally had a chillier than normal (read: in the 60s F), which tells me that soon, the dang mosquitoes will go back in hiding for another 6 months. I started putting the finishing touches on the duckling coop (they’re WAY happier to be out of that tractor and near a…

Confessions from the Coop: Who’s Laying??

In this Confessions from the Coop series, I share a “behind the scenes” glimpse of life on the farm! Enjoy! This week, it’s been all about construction on the farm.
