Eastside Farm Girls at Play!
I had to laugh when Tyner ran over to me, asking for more of her special food. I swear that girl eats a LOT! She had such fun running around.
I also couldn't help myself. I am (shhhh!!!) so in love with our rooster, Eric. I followed him around and took several pictures of him. I think this is the cutest one...
We are selling eggs now at 3 different Farmers' Markets and find ourselves running out before we are out of customers. We also heard that our favorite live chicken store had in a fresh shipment of chickens, so Farmer Jeff and I EACH bought 3 chickens that are due to start laying in 4-6 weeks.
We ended up with 2 Red Sex Links (they were bred with White Leghorns and Rhode Island Reds), that are red with white tail feathers and 4 Rhode Island Reds that are red with black tail feathers. You may recall the movie we had for the new nesting boxes where Ruby couldn't make up her mind which box was perfect. Ruby is a Rhode Island Red.
When the chickens are out of their pen, the dogs are either locked up in their pen or in the house. Let me tell you, it was not a perfect arrangement for them. To add insult to injury, Ginger has taken over one of their favorite sleeping spots.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I leave you with a picture of the new "Queen of the Dog Bed".
