Introducing the newest addition to the homestead: Miss Gretta Skye
We adopted her into our family on a whim last week and now she is a part of our family.
It is nice to have another female in the house,
- and also fun to finally use this girl name which we never got to use.
This week we said goodbye to our current layers,
we passed them on to some other folks in town as we are getting ready to move our new batch of layers into the coop. We will be buying eggs for a couple of months until our new batch starts to lay, but we are saving a little bit of work in terms of chores. Currently our chicks (now pullets) are sharing space with our meet birds which are growing at a rapid pace and are set to be 'turned into meat' the last week of October. Moving the new chicks to our chicken coop that has connection to electricity, will help tremendously when freezing temperatures arrive because we have a heated water warmer.
Other animal news - Checker our fiber bunny has moved into my kindergarten classroom. He is now a kinder-bunny for the winter and is well loved - and entertained each day by the kiddos I share my days with.
