Our new rooster. His name? I think it's going to be Big Easy. I've never seen such an easy introduction of a rooster to hens. I wanted to name him Fabian because the girls love him but when I told Buddy how easy he is with the hens, he said we should call him Big Easy.

He's a Faverolle X Ameracauna but I don't see any Ameracauna in him.

Happy Trails...

Do you see it? It looks like snow in the field behind us. No, of course, it's not snow. It's just plowed up cotton. This farmer, like most around here, are collecting on the insurance because of the drought and having to plow it up. So sad.

Did ya hear? We're supposed to have a cold front coming in. It's supposed to be in the mid 90's instead of 113-117. I'll take it! It's been too hot to do anything! Still no rain...

Farm news update -

flies - the jar helped but we still had flies. Hopefully, the change in the weather will keep them down. They're everywhere we go.

Pong and his mama didn't make it. That coyote's hunger was stronger than his fear and he came right up to the house. I watched for him a few evenings since. He came up a couple times and just stared at us. Buddy shot over him both times and we've not seen him again. Plus the field behind us is now plowed up. I hope he's gone.

Happy Trails...
