Togetherness ~ Raking The Grass

Okay, So These Pictures Are From About A Fortnight Ago...
But These Two Make Such A Great Team,
 That I Couldn't Help But Share!

Dylan LOVES To Work!

Meg LOVES More A More "Supervisory" Approach!

Abigail's Avocado

One Day Last Week, We Enjoyed Tacos For Our Evening Meal...

Abigail Thought Meg's One Looked Especially Delicious!

"Hmm, Perhaps Some Chicken Instead?"

"If Only My Arms Were A Bit Longer!"

This Little Cutie Repeatedly Grabbed At The Food,
So I Loaded Up A Spoon With Mashed Avocado, 
And Let Her Have-At-It!

Such A Happy Girl!

Carpenter Dylan

Dylan has been VERY busy over the past couple of afternoons, making this lovely "double ramp".  There has been a LOT of drilling and sawing!  He is SO delighted with his creation, and was very pleased that I wanted to take some pictures of it, as you may tell. :)

 Such A Lovely, Hard-Working Boy!

Plenty Of Screws To Make It Sturdy

These Kiddos Are Getting Big...Fast!

Wrinkly Eggs And A Chicken Photoshoot!

In the last couple of weeks, we have had a few "wrinkly eggs".  They are so funny looking!  Even though our chickens have a prepared organic mix, as well all the grass and grubs they want, we still suspected that a calcium deficiency was the cause.  Particularly, since we have had a number of thinly shelled eggs.  The Prairie Homestead website, gave us the solution we needed: feeding baked (crushed) egg shells back to the chickens!  So we've been saving our shells for a little while now, and last night I baked and crushed them, ready to give to the "girls".  I'll let y'know how we get on! :)

Amy Took Some Lovely Photographs

 This Chicken Is Such a Pretty Colour

Dust-Baths Are A Favourite Afternoon Activity
