New Members of The Farm Family

Well, you all knew we can't wait too long to add another member or more to our farm family! So, we did it.

Check out these little guys:

These are Silkies, they are a type of fancy chicken. I have wanted some for a while and then they came to our local farm supply store, and we snagged a few! Aren't they adorable!?

Also, check these two out:

The kittens, anyways! Their names are Luke and Leia! Can you tell we are Star Wars fans??? We actually really appreciate the work of cats on our farm. They keep our barns free of mice... and for that, we are big fans! (Can you tell my boys are still a little worn out from fair?)

So hopefully this is it for a little while.... maybe. ;) 4H pics tomorrow!

I had silkies too if you remember. Both of mine were blue silkies. I bought them at auction and they were adorable. I bought them as unsexed knowing perfectly well what could happen. AND.....it did. They both turned out to be roosters and let me tell you, the cuteness goes away quick when your two are both boys. They are mean, vicious little birds. hahahahaha. They are cute though all frizzled up!

Cats are a must at our place...our mama kitty had 3 babies that are so cute we're having a hard time giving them away, so I think we'll just keep them all!

Thanks, Becky Jane
Raising kids can be a lot like weeding the rose bed...well worth it, but...OUCH!
