I have a day off, today, but just like everyone, we try to pack as many chores into our 'days off' as possible, to make our work-week smoother.
So, I'm travelling about 2 hours south, to the nearest city, to get some black pants that fit, and some chicken feed. One of these days, I'll add some chick pics. I don't know if I've told you before, but we (my bf and I) got 26 Brown Leghorn chicks at the end of April, and now, we've got 13 girls and 13 boys, and everyone's getting a little frisky. There's too many boys, so sometime in late August, we're going to have to make some life and death decisions, on who's going to live in our freezer. Sorry folks, but this is the way farms work. (at least ours, anyway).
At least one of the girls (aka pullets) is laying eggs. We got our first EVER farm-fresh egg just the other day. Got pics of that too.
Anyway, as you can tell, I'm procrastinating getting ready for the big trip into the city. The trunk on the car isn't opening (there's something in the keyhole); I've called up the dealership, but they haven't gotten back to me. So, in other words, I'm not really looking forward to loading 25kg (that's about 55 lbs) bags of feed through my back seat, into the trunk. Oh well, life is good otherwise. I've gotten a whole lot stronger since my last update. I'm totally loving working produce at the local grocery store. Nothing like getting a workout at work!
Take care. You know by now that I'll probably be back in about a month.
