Good morning! I thought I would share some pics of the chickens, ducks, and geese this morning. They are all getting along fine . I let them out of the coop every evening for a couple hours and then just before dark make sure they are all back in safe and secure:) 635FF358-8EBF-4045-9203-E483914EFB9D.jpeg 63DC4A25-66BA-46D5-BC3A-A98DDAC682B9.jpeg

I know!!! And my little ducks are practically grown now.. another month and I will be gathering eggs!

I never thought I would do well with geese but I think now they are my favorite.. those babies are the MOST affectionate birds I have ever had!!

House Rehab Update - Project Butcherblock a success. We moved it this morning from our workshop over to the house & installed. Looks perfect. Another check ✅ on tasks completed.

I also installed a fancy new LED shoplight in the garage while wifey was changing out all of the old brassy/yellow door hardware with some good looking nickel/zinc knobs. All new light switch plates today too.

Brought my garden pitchfork today.....we plan to lift a few really gorgeous daffodils that we planted years ago. Gorgeous plants....so hopefully i can get a few.

Ta ta til later...

I hate 'em. It drives my blood pressure sky high.
Just did mine, I love it when they say "Donʻt move" like youʻre gonna run away with your flattened boob stuck in that horrid contraption. I can barely think never mind moving. Iʻm positive a man invented that thing - I believe an ultrasound would do the job just fine.

I so agree!

There again, my sister claims that the female reproductive system is proof that God is a man. No woman would ever have designed it the way it is 😂

Jayden is growing as fast as the chicks 🤣 and it looks like he's one of them. Or thinks so. Cute 🥰

I told the lady setting up my appointment to put it off as long as she could... and I was already a good 20 years late. She helped me out 😜😁

Good afternooning all. We have had heavy rain all day and it doesn’t look like ending any time soon.

Last night I scooped up another hedgehog with a leg injury and a couple of ticks and that one is safely at the rescue. This is the third :( The first one was put to sleep last week after it became clear that he wasn’t going to recover sufficiently to be released. The second had a broken back and was also put to sleep.

I don’t know the prognosis for this one. Send healing vibes because that’s what it needs.

I wish I knew where they were getting injured. It isn’t in my garden :( I think I shall be putting notes through neighbours doors asking them to check for hedgehog hazards.
I hope he's OK. At least he has a chance at the rescue.
Very strange that 3 have had injuries.
Do you think it could be something to do with the badgers?

They have certainly grown quickly!
The black one looks very comfortable with Jayden.

And then there's the whole "stiryps" thingy. I'm not flexible. I would flunk pilates & yoga classes.
