I've been busy...

So...what with the new babies, the dog, the older chickens, and finishing up the school year...I've been pretty busy...BUT! Finally a chance to blog....I got some more pictures of the new chicks, but now the pictures are a few days outdated...haha

Here we have what my cookbook calls "Double Apple Fantans" I rehydrated some chopped apples for this, instead of using fresh, ooooh yum, these are SO GOOD! We (family of 5) polished off the whole dozen that evening....yummm!
This is "Cream", I think at this point she was saying in her own way,"where did everyone go!?"

Here we have Cream and Marigold, mom's new duck.

And here is the back view of Cookie following Marigold and Cream, now, I'm really afraid that Cookie will have to go to a new home, as "she" is showing characteristics of a rooster, fast growing comb, large tail feathers....yeah....I'm gonna give it another week or so....but I'm pretty sure I've got a little boy...:(

Anyways, nothing really exciting has happened lately, today had a nice visit with some out of town homeschooling friends, but it was a very short visit, as they had a previous engagement with someone else.

Here they are!

Meet my new babies...both bantams and as of yet unnamed.

Hopefully I havent got a rooster, and I still dunno what type of bantams they are, it was a mixed bunch and they didnt know what they had or didnt have. But I do know for sure that they are not silkies, which is fine, I love them as they are...hehe...

Frog Prince?

This Handsome fella was found relaxing in the garden today, and while passing by I heard him say something real low...sounded like "Kiss Me"
So of course, I bent down low....and sure enough!
Kiss him indeed!....That my dear as close as my lips got to him...and even then I was fighting back laughter....
Here was right before I burst out laughing...can you imagine what the neighbors must have thought...seeing me "kiss" that poor toad?

And yes, I am back from my lovely vacation....I will probably post some pictures soon of the wonderful time I had..but for now, you should be happy with my Frog(toad) Prince....
