This is one of the cats that live in the barn. He is one bad dude, has to be to survive living with racoons, and critters that come into the barn. From the looks of him I would say he can hold his own very well.
A wild turkey feather lying in the field tell of the passing of the group of wild turkeys that live on the farm. You can hear them calling in the morning and evening. They were in the cluster of trees close to the house but because of the dogs they have moved higher up the hill. I love hearing and seeing them.
Yesterday the tiller Deann got for her tractor was delivered and she hopped on and tilled the garden and part of the field that they are going to grow gourds in. So as soon as this winter spell of weather we are having has passed through we will plant some veggies in our garden that can grow in the cooler spring weather. I LOVE the green grass in this picture!
The goose has made a nest and has been sitting on it, still no eggs but I expect she will start laying soon. That means the Gander has gone on attack mode. He will launch an attach on anything that gets near her including cars, dogs, the neighbors and their kids. Its time for them to go to the goose pen for awhile.
Deann got an incubator for her birthday and last night we had our first baby chicks hatch out and this morning this is what we had. It was fun to watch them peck their way out of the shells. They had started peeping a couple of days ago while still in the shell and as they hatched out they really talked to each other. Farm life is fun!!!
