This morning was a sad day on the farm. We woke up to a sea of dead chickens across our yard. All our top hats and Maran chickens are dead. It was really quite sickening to see. From the looks of the fur we see caught on the fence, it was our dog that did it through the night.
There is so much to be thankful for though. We recently moved our Guinea and Easter Egg chickens out of that pen into a different area, so the devastation could have been much, much worse. We also, thankfully, were hatching some of the Maran eggs in our garage and currently have 9 chicks that have hatched. What a blessing that we will be able to replace our Maran population!
Needless to say, we don't have our dog anymore.
I guess it's part of life on a farm. An unfortunately part....
In other news, we have a potty trained girl!! She has gone (I guess a week now) with no accidents or even having to be told to go potty. She always goes on her own!! She hasn't been able to get through the night dry yet, but we will be working on that. She loves her new underwear from Nana. Thank you Nana!
We also celebrated our boys' 10th birthday. WOW! Double digits!! He's our farmer-in-the-making and loves the outdoors. He does such a great job taking care of the animals. He's also such a good big brother. Happy birthday to our boy! We love you!
