If You Can't Say Anything Nice,,,,,

















Things have not been going too well here on the farm.  I hate to blog about my difficulties and would much rather have something funny to blog about.  Sadly, there hasn't been much of anything worth writing about.
Frustration can be funny but not at this time.  To start with, the eggs I have been incubating aren't hatching.  My success rate this year is less than 10% and I'm loosing many of the chicks that do hatch.  All of my pens are old and I have been busy repairing them.  The weather SUCKS.  And I am starting to feel my age more every second.

Okay the Pity Party is Over.

A few nice things have happened....




















5 weeks ago these little guys were born

















And today they look like proper little Flemish Giant bunnies.















My baby Rouen and Khaki Campbell ducks have grown.
















Old Mamma Muscovy duck successfully hatched four babies a few days ago.















Last week Wifey bought 2 goslings,


Date on photo is wrong.




















and I got this wonderful year old Flemish Giant buck.....


















and this adorable Mini-Dutch doe.



So it hasn't all been bad.  The garden will eventually get planted. The power yard and garden tools will get fixed. The fences and pens will get repaired. And life will go on.

Thanks Robin, I have been so busy lately that I haven't taken the time to post anything. I have got to start MAKING time.

What can I say, I like the big rabbits. Go ahead and give me another nick name, I've had many, and at least that one's printable.

I had never seen newborn bunnies before. Too cool. I can totally relate to feeling your age. It's still better than the alternative though although I mostly forget that part.
