Day to day goings on here at the farm. Everything from weather to horses and donkeys to chickens to cats and dogs and everything in between. Some blogs will be informative. While others will be I hope, just entertaining and keep you coming back. And of course there will be pictures.

I can see you!!!!
Thank you all for your kind words concerning Maggie's passing. Hugs to you all.
I had previously mentioned that one of the hens is eating the eggs. So, unless I actually sit out there and catch the culprit I have no idea who it is.
However, I remembered buying a video surveillance unit with sound when we first moved here. I am a worrier and wanted to keep an eye on the horses and donkeys in the evening while I was in the house.
After taking the stalls down I put the monitor in the barn since I couldn't use it anymore.
Can you guess where it is now? Yup, inside the chicken house.
I can now watch the girls while I am inside the house doing those awful mundane chores. And as soon as I hear the clucking and cackling I can see who laid the egg and either watch who steals it or just go out there and get it.
As soon as I catch the girl who is eating the eggs, well, she can't stay in the coop anymore and she will be a true free range gal.
Today I did buy some oyster shells as was suggested to maybe stop the thief.
