Cockadoodle Doo!

Last week we upped the ante on this "farm" thing and bought 15 chickens and 1 turkey. They are about 3 weeks old now and will be moving out of the garage and into their coop (once it is built). The kids have a good time chasing them around the yard for now. We should start getting eggs around Halloween time so if any of your are interested we should have plenty (i.e. 6 dozen a week).
The apricots are finally ripe. The tree is still fairly small, but we got a bucket full.





We figured that we have enough girls so we thought we would try raising Grace as a boy for a while...actually, Grace cut her own hair, AGAIN. She doesn't seem to mind so I guess none of us should either.
