Well, time beat me yesterday, the cuckoo clock cuckooed before I had time to close out my diary so I’m starting today’s on the tail of yesterdays. We would like to welcome Quatre to the ranch. Quatre is a WOOFER who is here from Seattle and will be here to help and to get farming experience for a week.We are looking forward to sharing our life with her and hope that she goes home with happy memories of the time spent with us.
Quatre actually arrived in the middle of a crisis and within minutes was hard at work with Greg and other hardworking Jasper. Yesterday morning when we arrived at the ranch in the other chicken coop there was evidence of a very fresh and unfinished kill. We have netted the chicken roost and knew that the “shack” was too small for the eagle to make its dive kill and escape..but something had taken a chicken snack. We have recently been made aware of a very big owl who has taken up residence in our forest. Well…no.1 he wasn’t invited and no.2 no one offered free chicken dinners to an uninvited guest. Greg had scheduled the day to re housing the sumo chicks…as ever, the planned event was cancelled and turning the chicken shack into Alcatraz became yesterday’s priority.
Well, the kitchen has become hectic with people making breakfast and getting ready for the day. I’d better make room at the table. Take care, keep safe, M
