Lazy

Lazy and not really something to write about.

Too much rain and too much work I can't do because of this.
But, and this is a happy but :-)
I found a farrier, finally, after I don't know how many calls and messages I've sent out.
Now I only need a vet to come here, so I can get a check on my horses, just in case. I know that they are healthy, but it's always good to have it on the papers as well.

Only 2 hatchlings so far, but the breeding machine is filled up again.
One man is waiting for some Brahma and I hope that I can call him soon with some good news.

Oh, and we worry about our cat Lovely, she is 15 now and she gets more and more skinny :-(
Special wet food, but all she wants is the jelly.
So we need a lot of crossed fingers, that she will stay hopefully longer with us!

Italy

Nothing important happened in the past 2 weeks.
I've lost some hatchlings, for sure some were taken by the seagulls or other hunters.
And many more are there, waiting to be sold.

Two days ago my son called and asked, if he can come with 4 men, they needed a place to sleep before they drive back home.
Of course I said yes and so I rushed into his old room to clean it up and put two beds into the room.
The other room was ready, just a second bed to be placed and I only wished, I had better beds to offer for a night.

They came yesterday evening and we had a short, but very nice time.
What this meant to me, not one of them could imagine **smile**
Not only that it was so nice to have some guests to talk with, but they were from Itlay.
I've been there twice (I don't count the first trip through Italy) and my thoughts are going around and around since 2018 to maybe move to Italy.

Thinking back the years, when I was 19, working in a restaurant, driven by a German man and his Italian wife.
People thought, that I was from Italy as well, funny, cause I had fire red hair at that time and couldn't say a single Italian word.
But I was able to sing every single song that was played in the restaurant :-) So the rumor was going around, that I was of course from Italy, just didn't wanted to say lol

Now, was this a little hint from the Universe? Sending me 4 men into my house, who could have been from any country, but Italy.
I really have to learn a bit more, preparing myself for maybe really moving to Italy.
I know, I have to wait some years, it's not the time yet!
But who knows, everything is possible and I'm open for a new experience :-)


7 chicken less on the farm

I took a hard decision but in the end, it was the only thing to do.
Today I sold my 7 Brahma hens and only the 2 Brahma roosters are left and I hope, I'll find some buyers for them as well.
So many hens, so many roosters, it was too much.

I will keep the small hens and roosters and will separate them by breed.
That will also minimize all the new coming chicken.
I have sold a lot in the last weeks, still some left to sell and still some eggs in the breeding machine to hatch.

Not really sure about it now, but maybe I'm going to sell all roosters next year.
Just keeping the hens for some breakfast eggs or eggs to sell. But this decision can wait, no hurry with it :-)

This way I will save for sure a lot of money and it also means less work for me to do.
Still trying to find some buyers for my mares, I don't care about the money I could get, but a good place for them.
So if the right person will show up I'm open for a discussion about the price.

Siblings

Today I got 2 cute hatchlings, one in yellow and the other with yellow and black.
The other two I kept from all hatchlings in the last weeks were outside in the garden, while the other two had to stay inside.
But it's so warm, I think they can stay in the garden as well tomorrow.

Now I took the older ones in and the biggest one decided, to visit the small ones :-)



Sad thing is, I have to sell the new ones and every following hatchling, cause I already have more than enough hens and roosters.

An invisible ostrich maybe?

Every day I go to the chicken coop to take out the eggs.
Some of my hens decided to sit on them and maybe, if we're lucky, some chicken will hatch.
And I put all other eggs in the breeding machine and this way I got already over 40 chicken :-)

Yesterday I went to the coop to collect the eggs and I was stunned!


Look closely at this one huge egg!
I found big eggs, of course, my Brahma hens and roosters are big, very big. But never before I found an egg this big.
Like all other eggs, I wrote the date on, so I know, when the time is there for the chicken to hatch.
I always wait some more days, before I take an egg out, just in case, it could be a late hatchling.

Please cross your fingers with me, that there will be a hatchling from this big egg.
I'm so exited to see, how it will look like :-)
