While we were away…

We traveled last week…

For this big day…

…but, wait…impossible – she is only 10 years old – she could not be graduating from high school.  Well – ok – maybe.

However…

while we were away…

this happened…

…and this…

…and there was also a development with our chickens.

The hens were busy while we were away and laid about 15 eggs.  We only collected 5 when we got home.

The reason?

Can you see these two ladies?

Maybe you need a close up view.

Our other ten eggs are under these gals, who have decided to go broody.  This means that they want to hatch their eggs and raise chicks.  Each hen has about five eggs upon which she is setting. This has happened before and we have discouraged it by removing the hen from the nest and extracting the eggs.  This time, Mr. Fifty Shades thinks it will be fun to let them hatch out some chicks.  Mr. Fifty Shades is channeling his inner Scarlet O’Hara and thinking…I shall never go eggless again!  

Until next time,
