Layers are laying eggs galore.
The incubator is FULL of eggs! Stay tuned--in a few weeks we'll have pictures of really cute chicks.

|It is soon becoming the time when snapping turtles lumber out of their hibernation in our bottom land and meander across the lower pasture to the large pond. A year ago this time, Sofie met her first snapper, up a bit too close and personal. The "snap" of the turtle left a scratch on her nose but she was otherwise unscathed and we moved her to another area while the turtle continued her walk to the pond. |
|This is not the snapper that got Sofie; it is a photo from a few days afterward showing how curious she still is about these large creatures appearing in what she considers her territory.|
