Life in the Slow Lane

We’ve been here for a little while now and thought it was time to install a few amenities…maybe a screened indoor pool would be nice…

….Mr. Fifty Shades thought it would be a good idea to add some chicks...

He always said he was a chick magnet…and, well…after a trip to the post office, he returned with proof!

Each of these little fuzzy little creatures needs to be taught to drink water first thing…

…and then they kind of figure things out from there…

Gathering at the water cooler


Ah…here’s where the food is!

The heat lamp is attached to a thermostat that is on its way to a temperature of 95 degrees, keeping these chicks at the warm and cozy temperature they need to thrive for their first few weeks.

In other news, our neighbor’s cow and her calf are grazing on a section of our property for a little while and they are always ready for a photo op…  

Until next time,

Fifty Shades of Green Acres Team

  1. Of course Farmer Fifty Shades is a chick magnet. How else could he have attracted Mrs. Fifty Shades?

  2. You are living the “piano” life. “Piano” is my Costa Rican friend’s favorite expression. In music it means ‘slowly and softly’ – a good way to live. Get to know the cow. Cows quietly ponder the goings-on around them, consider it, don’t comment, then go about their business. I wished I knew more cows!

    • I love that description. We, like you, have grown to appreciate the simplicity and pace of our lives. That sure does seem to be what the Mama Cow is doing. Thanks for staying in touch!

  3. Life in the Slow Lane looks like a whole lot of fun! Welcome to spring and spring chicks getting accustomed to a new world. Love and hugs to all.
