Around the farm

First are our Californian Meat rabbits. These are Ray's "babies"

Here are our breeding bucks. On the top is John Henry and on the bottom is Lance.
Here are our breeding does. From left to right, top to bottom: Shear Mist, Babe, Val, Guin, Esme and Arabella

Here are our 6 laying hens. They are great girls and each of them gives us one egg a day.

Here is our future "hoop" green house. Ray made this out of an old trampoline that the former owners left here when they moved. Each end is half of the trampoline and the middle poles were the legs (doubled). We got the white plastic cheap. We are hoping that this will let us extend our growing season.

Here is the front view. Ray still needs to finish this side and make the raised beds. We will be planting in here as soon as it is done and hoping to have fresh veggies well into the fall. Then we will be able to start our garden crop much earlier next year too!

Last but not least is our 2 week old baby chicks. Ray made them a mini coop. AIN'T IT CUTE!? They are outside during the day and then come into my kitchen over night. I can't wait until they are old enough and big enough to stay out all the time! CHICKENS SMELL BAD!
