Has anyone read about Temple Grandin? I recently read her book and was impressed with her ability to connect with the animals. One cold day I went to get my five little chickens out of their cage so they could roam the yard and I had on gloves. I hadn't worn gloves before to take them out so they all freaked! You would've thought I threw a coon in their cage the way they acted. I took off my gloves and they settled down and came to the door so I could put them on the ground! Temple was right, even those tiny brained birds don't like change! Silly story but I thought it was interesting and wanted to share.
The 23 chickens I hatched are growing like crazy! 12 are pullets and 11 are cockerels! Three of the little guys have already started crowing.
I have the craziest story to share about my boy goat. I have a video to upload and then I will share it. It was a long day thats for sure!!! The goat barn is useable and we built a hay manger this weekend that will keep them from wasting so much I will take pictures soon!
I harvested two pie pumpkins and even though my pumpkin vine died from the last frost the pumpkins are turning orange still ☺ My fall garden is looking great and so far we are harvesting lettuce and I hope we get a couple of tomatoes soon! I also harvested a big bag of pecans, I need to start cracking them for Thanksgiving pie!
I also made goats milk soap with a new recipe, I have tried a bar and it's heaven to the skin but doesn't last long, maybe I didn't let it cure long enough, I don't know!
|The middle bars are oatmeal, I haven't tried it yet!|
Have a good day everyone!
