Of Calves and Chicks

We got some new chicks! Two dozen golden sex link pullets. They are quite the entertainment around here...

So much fluffy cuteness...

Oh... and did I mention I am a proud cow owner again? Thanks to a quickly and cheaply constructed pallet shelter (my husband hates it, but for a girl it was the best I could manage on my own with the materials available at the time), these 500 lb beef calves are quite comfortable in their deep bedding where they will stay for 1-2 months until the active grass growing season.

It is so neat to see our boys - not even 3 and 2 yet! - surrounded by dogs, chickens, cows, and already learning about caring for animals. I am so grateful to God for providing this wonderful life for my little family.
