On Friday morning, I managed to get a photo of a hummingbird at the feeder with my phone.

But when I went to the barn I saw this.

Two of the peachicks were standing on their mother.

It was really cute.

On Saturday morning, Summer is looking cuter and cuter, particularly as she gets fuzzier.

The pumpkins the pigs planted and fertilized are doing quite well.

And the younger poults that we got from Eliz are doing OK outside of the pen.  I was worrying about them, particularly the first evening when they did seem to know how to roost.  But they are figuring things out.

And the young Freedom Ranger roosters are starting to crow.  This is the lowest toned crow I have ever heard.


Not a young’un, but I thought this hen looked striking in the flowers.

The peachicks continue to do well with their mother’s care.

They have these singing sounds unlike other types of chicks.

And today, the grandkids arrived for a visit.  More on this later.

But we have plenty of young’uns on the farm now.

    Very nice pictures! The peachicks are really cute, and so is Summer! I hope and pray that the peachicks will survive! The picture of the hen in the flowers is really pretty! And you’re right – that’s a very “low crow!” I had to chuckle when I heard it. I was puzzled though, when I listened to the peachicks “song” – wondering what the clacking sound was. It has a metallic sound. Thanks for sharing!
