Friday, May 18

Hello,

We got our 60 or so chicks yesterday. They are mostly layers but there's some white rock. We've heard it's supposed to rain tonight and maybe hail. Today we did a whole bunch of different things, fixed the door between the goats and the rest of the barn, made the grain container on the milk stand better, cleaned up around the house, weeded some of the garden, and in the afernoon David and I went for a boat ride on the lake. We saw someone working on the lake shore of our neighbor's cabin area with a bobcat. Mom and Andrew went to town this afternoon and got a whole bunch of groceries. We have one of our new chicks that doesn't look real good. One leg is bent out from under it.

Just an update,

Peter

Hi Peter

Maybe your blog will accept my comments. Here goes.

Thanks for your update.

I don't remember any cabin on your lake. Is that the neighbor next to you on the road? Could they be making a swimming area?

Keep your animals warm and give them plenty of room to roam.

Maybe you need more shelters before you get any more livestock/birds etc. Sounds like you have started an interesting forest with all those different kind of trees and bushes.

Have a good week.

Nice cane Peter.

How much do you have to pay the beaver? He must have been an old one, needing a cane.

Hello,

The beaver doesn't care about the price as long as I don't bother his dam (then he doesn't like me).

The cabin on the lake is our new neighbor Cory Lund. He is making a small shack on the lake shore to live in.

Thank you for the comments,

Peter
