Saturday Farm Report ):

| | Comments (6) | TrackBacks (0)
Today was a difficult day.  Our sweet Little Girl, the Empress of Argghhh!, left her sunbeam and John and I today.  She was a wonderful, beautiful feline family member.  Up until last week, she could still jump onto our bed at night and snuggle up with John, unless he was sleeping too restlessly, and then she would come over to my side of the bed and let all other cats know that they had lost thier place because She had arrived to take her place.

Little Girl bossed the dogs around, even big huge dogs knew better than to mess with her! 

I will miss her. 

Now, to the farm report - one dozen eggs today!!!  And, the hens are starting to lay in the new nestboxes in the new chicken house!!!

I have decided to start feeding them just the scratch grains, as the price of layer feed is out of site for 60 to 70 birds (including my guineas).  Because they free range, they eat a lot of grass and weeds, and because John and I are on diets, they get most leftovers every day. (except chicken.  I cannot feed them chicken, it's just wrong).  I found they love ground beef, turkey dressing (baked outside the bird) and carrot casserole.

I did stop in to Kansas Country Store to pick up the scratch grains, and I spoke to Major briefly about the roofing for the chicken house.  I think he's feeling guilty, and as soon as we have a decent day, he and his brother will come out and put the roofing stuff on the roof.

Sad news. Pets just don’t live long enough to avoid this kind of pain.

But I think the fun can still be worth it.

I’m so sorry, Beth. ((hugs))

She was a great cat and she lived a wonderful life with her fabulous family. Sending hugs your way as I know this is tough for you & John.

Sorry to hear the sad news :(

hug

Oh no! I’m so sorry, but I know she had a wonderful life. I hope she went quietly and easily.

:(

So sorry.
