Today I was noticing the birds on our little farm. Above are our Barred Rock mix chicks growing up and drinking water after I removed the ice. Below are the Araucana mix chicks that like to hang out in the donkey pen. Two of them are roosters which is unfortunate.
There was a GBH on a fencepost of the pigs’ pasture this morning. We have quite a few of these birds, but I have never seen one on an interior fencepost before. Here is a closeup (Sorry for the quality. I am still not allowed to bring my nice camera into the barnyard.)
We kept our “free rare exotic” chick from our last batch of roosters. He is finding his way in the flock now with the Welsummer rooster asserting his dominance.
And our peachicks are almost all grown up.
And a butt shot.
Looking at the birds distracted me from the frozen ground and water. We are all sick of the cold.
Except for not being able to ride, I prefer frozen ground to squishy mud!
I don’t mind the frozen mud, but the frozen water containers and frozen fingers are a drag.
