We have chickens:
Homeschooling/Canadian Organic Growers (COG) friends brought them as a housewarming gift. We cleaned out the hen house and spread some hay on the floor. We’ve been feeding them in one of our camping plates, which has a bit of an edge to it. And one of them laid an egg the first day she was here. On the floor. Hurray!
Today they got to hang out in the barnyard and had a great time. The cats are not at all sure about them.
We also have pigs:
They are living in the old dog pen with an indoor place to sleep. They seem to like it. There are clearly tasty things buried there. Things that are way more interesting that whatever we put in their trough. Which is fine with me.
They are about the size of a beagle. 3 months old. Large Black is the breed. Very cute.
They were out in the barnyard, too. They are very good diggers. I can’t wait to get them onto the field with the vegetable garden to dig up the areas we want to expand into.
