It was a Beautiful Day....

It was cold enough to break ice again this morning, and I had to bring the little henhouse waterers in to thaw them.... but it was so pretty out for late November. 

The chickens were all happy to be out in the brisk air.... big and little.... and I cut our Halloween/Thanksgiving pumpkin for them to have a treat.

The llamas were enjoying the crisp air...


Tony wandered over to see what I was doing...

Inca wanted to see what I was doing, but Aztec wanted to see what the chickens were doing in the pasture...


But he's still little enough that where Mom goes, he goes too...

We are still not sure what color Aztec is really going to be...maybe gray?  He has one tiny dot of white on his chest in the middle.

The "Little" chicks in the little henhouse are 3 months old now, though still small.  They are healthy and well, but don't go outside yet.  There is a light shining in there day and night, so they can get under it for warmth.  That's a slice of pumpkin behind them in the doorway, but they were not interested in it.  Several are frizzles, meaning their feathers are curly. The gray chick with his back to you is a cockerel.


A better view of some of the chicks... the grey with his little beak and the white on the right are cockerels.... and the others, pullets (girls).  The little black is the spitting image of what surely is her mama, my black cochin Lady. I have no idea what I am going to do with two more cockerels.


Farmdog Abby wore herself out...


As did Lilly Ann...

Along with Keith and Jenny...

All in all, a good day here at Calamity Acres.
