Bella in the pool

I dont know if I have mentioned this, but I moved the small pool onto the front porch so Bella can play in it. She was having such a good time a couple days ago that I had to catch some photos. Here she is laughing because she has been splashing Mama and Card with water - she has just discovered splashing :)

Eggs and Chicks

Our big broody hen - Tess - has hatched out all she is going to hatch I believe. She had 12 eggs under her and hatched out 9 live ones, 1 died after hatching, and she has two left, but I think she is finished being broody! 9 out of 12 is great though! Here are some of the chicks and the proud (and VERY protective) Mama!

One of Tess's eggs in the hatching process.

Tess and 5 of her chicks.
No its not different daddies - it is actually different mamas........

Tess today - with 9 baby chicks. Try and get close and you will get a good pecking - just ask Card.

Farm Progress

Things are coming along nicely here!

The travel trailer in its final resting spot.

Will has cleared quite a bit of the side yard.

The septic still needs to be covered and leveled - I will post the "after" picture to this soon!
