More eggs!

So many eggs! I've given away one dozen to the neighbour, and we'll give another dozen to some friends tomorrow.. and there are another two dozen spare in the fridge. Notice the green eggs?? One of the araucana pullets has started laying, we call her Funky. Perhaps you'll see why in the next picture?

Funky is the black chook. :)

The feeder in the picture is something Marty and I made over a couple of weeks. It's designed to open only when the chooks stand on the platform. Hopefully, once the chooks get use to it, it'll help keep the mice and wild birds from eating all their food!

Otherwise, life has been quiet here. This winter had been fairly dry up until a couple of days ago. The Baker's Oven has been keeping us warm on the few nights that we've really needed it. Believe it or not, we've actually been camping a couple of times and didn't freeze to death!

Until next time!

  2. Oh, I couldn't do that! I got the idea and plans from:
