it made mud puddles for the ducks. I will let 3 of them out to play a bit today......... I can watch them more careful. Thanking my Father for Saturday's and Sundays......makes my life a little sweeter!!!!!!!!
Outside the pen.............jumpin puddles together.
The black duck that I have down in the milk barn is doing quite well. The white duck that is in the big coop is still limping.........found out last night she is a she.......Miss Limpy is her name.........hope she will give me some babies.
Now for the new rooster. My farm girlfriend Gail......who lives down the road called and said she had a young rooster that I could have if I would like.........."sure" I said. A storm was rolling in across the horizon (looked promising), right before their family got to our farm. He was a beauty, more darker red than mine that was killed.
I put him by the side of the house where Miss Shelby lives in the night time. She flies up in a tree right outside our kitchen window, at dusk every night. This pic is from our kitchen window. I had to leave early in the morning and sure enough the new rooster was crowing and so was all the other guys on in the farmyard. Sweet sound. I needed a name for the new guy! So as some of you know I put up a fun name contest on my Prairie Flower Farm facebook. You ladies were so much fun!!!!!!!!!! I told you that I would give a little gift to the winner of the name.
When I got home after working at the college bakery I saw how the new rooster was not being very nice. He started to come at me.......I kept thinking........he can't really be doing this is he? Yup he was. My honey got pecked in the knee by him......and he got close to Miss Shelby and pecked off some of Miss Shelby's feathers that were "attached to her head" before he attacked her. I was one unhappy Miss Prairie Flower!
Tressy was grabbing those feathers as fast as she could for her headbands!!!!!!!! Heeeheee, she was not a nice girl..........."JUST KIDDING"! Well he almost became rooster and dumplings last night. I called Gail...........she thought that he was just a little confused, because when he was given to her he came with some other chickens that were his friends. It was really funny when they were getting ready to leave our farm. As we remembered he seemed to want to get in their truck as she was shutting the door. I asked her if she wanted him back.............. NOOOOO! She had to many roosters as is. Her honey said, "throw him in a pot". My thoughts exactly, smile! Gail thought to put him in the big coop with the other chickens. I will try and see how that works today.
So now for the name.........if he ends up in the pot at least he will go with a name. Heehee! I called my little 4 year old grandson to help me pick name and he said,
Karin Leslie said "Wr called ours "Woosta" which was the way 3yr olds say rooster.
Well I guess 4 year olds do also.
Love you all sweet ladies...........going to have a fun day on the farm today!!!!!! My granddaughter is coming to spend the night. We will have some memory making times tonight!
Please ladies pray for Josh and Tonya..........their protection as they travel, that their hearts and minds would stay on the faithfulness of their Heavenly Father.......they leave next week. They need the Lords help on this one! The battle is just beginning. Pray Truth over them. God is more powerful! We are asking for mountains to be moved and miracles to happen. Faith~ in those things we can not see.........because it is really all about Him anyway!
Welcome new followers.....you were noticed........by me!
