Our cat Mr. Meowgo is a hunter even as his food bowl sits full to the brim with tasty food.
He brings mice, voles, birds, lizards and sometimes cute little chipmunks to the front door for our approval.
A stone cold killer
I have tried unsuccessfully in the past to help the chipmunks escape his lethal grasp.
Today a chipmunk lives with minor injuries due to the quick action of my husband!
The photo below shows the only injury to poor Lucky.
I scoop Mr. Meowgo up and we go for a walk while Lucky makes plans for his retreat.
Enjoy your day!
In the past few weeks the hens have provided us with over two dozen eggs and counting. I have made egg salad and even pickled some eggs.
I had to take a picture of our first two eggs!
our first two eggs
Pullet eggs are great for pickling. I am going to try lots of recipes and create a few of my own.
The ladies and Big Bird watch me pull weeds from the garden for their midday salad. Big Bird demands attention with his loud crow along with the fifteen hens clucking at me.
The ladies are so very loving and loud when announcing the arrival of the newest egg addition. I know I am to blame for spoiling them but I care not. They feed us, amuse us, are great alarm systems, provide organic fertilizers, etc.
So for more entertaining photos…
Our trusted feline friend is not entirely pleased with our new feathered family. He is very curious and does watch over them.
Although there are eight different laying boxes, the hens only lay in the one box that I painted the word egg on…can they read? Or maybe it’s the classical music playing on NPR? As you can see, two Rhode Island Reds are already in the laying box and a line is forming.
Henny Penny must be in dire straits to crowd with two other hens in the same laying nest. I came back to find three eggs a little later in the day!
Big Bird loves his special treats of sunflower seeds and cooked brown rice. He loves to eat from my hand.
Enjoy your day!
