|Jason's bee hive. The bees will arrive next week.|
He has promised that the hive will be in our tree line that runs

|The newest arrivals: 2 Peking ducks, 4 Mallard ducks,|
6 laying hens and 5 broilers.

|Dinner! Broilers will be ready for oven in 9 weeks or less.|
|The chicken coop made of salvaged wood pallets and recycled|
wood from our previous goat shelter.

|This is Snow Flake our mama cat. She just had kittens on April 11th. |
She won't let us get a good look at the kittens, so we don't know how many we have.
|This is poor love starved Holly. No one is scared of her as a watch dog.|
|Here's the girls!!! This is a side view into our chicken tractor.|
