Some of the Crew

Here are the ducks, there are 15 of them. Their job here is to supply us with fresh eggs...

They seem to be on strike lately..

Here are a few of the bantam chickens

At least they lay eggs.

Here are just a few of the larger chickens. These are Easter Eggers and their hens lay greenish colored eggs.
And this is Romeo. He is the baby of the house. There is a larger dog Dukey who is the ruler of outside the house but Roamy is the baby.

He is not exactly a real exciting dog but we love him.


  1. Thanks for the visit! I would love to have some chickens, but we are stuck living in the city for a few more years, and our 2 big dogs wouldn't share the tiny back yard well.

  2. Yeah well I am sure you know that there are a lot of ways of being self sufficient even in the city but chickens are definitely a nice thing to have. I make all sorts of recipes with 6 or 7 eggs and don't even think anything about it but if I was buying them, it would be different. Anyway, I am sure your grandma has taught you all sorts of self sufficient ways, even in the city :)
