Our little "tetra tint" pullet, Lucky, disappeared this week. We got her from TSC this spring. She's some kind of leghorn mix that lays brown eggs. After a couple days MIA, she turned up! Broody! Behind all the hay in the loft.
First off, what bird goes broody in October. Secondly, what kind of leghorn goes broody at all?
Lucky is sitting on a clutch of 10 eggs now. I'm going to have to figure out how to get them all down from the loft when they hatch.
I finally got around to making some homemade English muffins. I've been meaning to try it forever. I love them, but they are so expensive at the store and we try to eat only homemade bread using freshly ground wheat. Wide mouth canning lids make the perfect forms, but it took a little practice to determine just how much dough needed to go in each one.
It's been cold here so I've cranked up the wood stove. The kitty cats are in heaven!
That black mass on the green rug is actually another cat.
Can anyone identify this creepy crawly? He was down in by the buck pen. Florescent green and about as big as my thumb.
