PICTORAL UPDATE

I thought I would upload some photos of our small farm to give you an idea of where we live.

Our home, we are really blessed.

We are very blessed to have a lovely home.  We have grass planted around our home that is green all summer if we water it.  We have a bore so water is no issue, another blessing.

This is the cubby house that dad built the younger two last year.  It is great and in the summer when the tree has leaves you can’t see the cubby at all and they can hide away.  They want their dad to build them a bridge to another tree but we aren’t sure Health and Safety would be ok with this.

Ducks

We started with about 6 Appleyard ducklings and 2 Mallards and then some friends gave us some other ducks.  I’m not quite sure what they all are but there is some Runner Duck in them.  We have 19 ducks at the moment.  I wanted to butcher some to eat but they all hang out together and seem to talk to each other so I am hesitant to break up the family.

Chickens

Some of our chickens that love getting out and roaming around the paddocks.  The white chickens are a White Leghorn x New Hampshire breed.  The black ones are ones from eggs that we gave my friend to incubate for us.  She is definitely the chook whisperer and gets almost 90% each time.  At the moment we get nearly 2 dozen eggs a day and are nearly ready to sell them out the front of the house.

This is just a small snap shot into our lives and where we live, we really enjoy it here and every morning we wake up here is a blessing.
