Our setting hen continues to diligently set on her eggs. Technically those eggs are due to hatch on Thursday, but I'm not entirely certain of her "official start date" so I could be off by a day or two. Chicken eggs take three weeks to hatch.
And we have another setting hen! This one is a Rhode Island Red and I believe she officially started setting about three days ago. Setting hens always seem to wedge themselves into the most inconvenient spots, but hey, whatever makes them comfortable I suppose. At least this lady is in the coop so I can shut her up safely at night.
Goodness, at this rate we're going to have chicks galore.
Here's one of our barn/shop cats, JJ, eating out of bowl Don made out of half a tankard.
It just struck me as funny, the kind of cat food bowls we have around here.
And oats cut. This is a neighbor's field.
Don says I should limit the "amber waves of grain" photos on this blog, but gosh darn it's so beautiful during the time of harvest. I just can't resist.
It just makes me grateful for the abundance of food in this land, courtesy of your local hard-working farmers. Say a little prayer of thanksgiving for these folks.
