What's the 100 acres like? Trees and grasses?

The front is open pasture, mixed grasses.

Back 3/4 is forest. There's a large pond in the back. The area is mostly shale rock with a foot of dirt on top (we have a few quarries around us and one right next door on 400 acres that isnt used because id bad access). Not good for planting at all.

Before covid my brother got me a gift certificate for a daith piercing. He got it and his migraines have been greatly reduced.

Then covid hit and I never got around to it.

Both my girls have mentioned wanting to get their ears pierced.

Friday my brother texts me that he's made us all appointments and paid for the girls as a birthday gift to them. He said make sure I have my gift certificate.

Even with the Emla numbing cream the girls said they felt it but both were Champs. They got beautiful pink studs.

I got the barbell type.

Woke up this morning. NO headache. Yay!!!

It was a fun day out, just us girls. Stopped by my parents. My dad is almost done his chemo. He looks awful right now. Very pale. His face is bruised from a fall he had. Seeing the girls made him happy. My mom happily showed off all of her gardens.

My other brother gave dd a massive bow since she loves archery.

When the girls and i got home we all went out fishing. DS caught his first largemouth bass and wh caught a nice size northern pike. I'll have to break out my rod and scum frog and show those boys how it's done lmao

Just dropped into this thread for the first time smile
We live in a small city and there are a few people in our suburb with chickens and we are allowed them here. I am thinking about it once I retire (or not work full time) in 5 years time. We have a back section they could live in which is our working part of the garden so not worried what they do there. So just in the planning, what are the types of chickens people have and how much space is fair per chicken? The back section would be approximately 160 square metres which roughly translates to 1722 square feet. We are re-doing the garden again so was thinking of incorporating some chicken planning. Would love to have bees as well.

If the birds are being kept in a coop/run they need around 10 square feet per bird. You can get away with less if they have time to free range.

Currently I have Wyandottes, Ameraucanas, copper marans, olive eggers and polish.

I am thinking about weather. We are under drought restrictions and my garden is going to have a tough time this summer. Trying to re arrange things and repot. Looking at areas and wondering if I should put down brick or stone. Yellowstone has flooded and roads are out so maybe our vacation just went poof.....we could scramble to get reservations somewhere else....I'm not a good last minute person I like to plan.

Thank you everyone for your wisdom and healing.

This is the only place I should post on a Friday night after fun drinking, I’m sad to find this on page 3.

What’s on my mind? Well on New Year’s Day I called a press conference and announced my retirement from whiskey and I’m good there, I’m not a drinker, but after a few beers and a dozen games of corn hole, I know better than to go anywhere else on SI 😀

See y’all tomorrow

Dare I ask what the game of corn hole involves??? laugh


On my mind....

Bulldogs snore loud!

Goats are assholes, especially bucks.

My six goats decided that the grass was greener on the other side of the ROAD. Despite electric fence, 6 foot tall fence and actual sheep/goat fence they could not be contained. So I locked them into the extended pig area! 6 foot plus fence topped with barbed wore. Giz, my younger buck managed to jump the gate so I got a bucket of grain to lead him back. I DID NOT bring my lunge whip. Big mistake. One second with my back turned and he rammed me so hard it knocked the wind out of me. None of the goats will get close when I have the whip.

Ugh! I hurt so bad!

This heat! So many, many days with over 100 degree plus temps. It really zaps energy to go outside for anything. And the wildfires! Everything is so dry. We definitely need some rain. Heck, I wouldn't mind a few inches of snow and sleet right now.

Ok that wasn't what I was thinking. Lmao

And I agree. The heat has been bad. Not as bad ad otjer places but for us Canadians so used to Elsa weather, the heat is to much.

Add to that rain and it's a muggy heat. We had brief rain storms yesterday that made everything so much more sticky.

We live in the Dallas area, it hit 109 a few days this week with a few short pop up showers. It cooled off for a second, then made it so humid 😩

Yes he is young and yes he's alive and well. Locked up with the other goats.

And yes he rammed me very hard. I'm still hurting. He got my lower back, pain shoots up and down. It's awful. I could barely walk. I'm better now but still very sore.

This is the same guy who rammed my legs when I caught him in the sunroom with his head in the can of feed.

Goats are really stupid! They will eat grain until their gut literally explodes!

This guy's dad is head of herd. Dad kicks his sons butt any time son goes near thr ladies so he's ummmm frustrated.

Still doesn't give him any right to beat on me!

Please note I do not hit the animals with the whip. They are trained to respect my space, the length of the whip simply by making it Crack. They don't like the sound.

No whip and Giz totally invaded my space.

Went from beyond hot and sunny yesterday to cloudy, but still muggy with thunderstorm warnings for today.

Dang goat! Hope youre a little less sore today.
I miss my chickens. We got wiped out when we went on our family vacation.
So we are going without birds until next spring. I would like to get one goat to protect them a bit more. We have had issues with Coyotes in our area the past 2 springs and they are hell on a flock of birds and will do whatever it takes to get at an easy food source.

Today is supposed to be our last day of extreme heat. While I love hot weather I am ready for a break.

I'm a but better today but last night OMG thr pain doen my leg was awful. I swear he hit a nerve.

My chickens are still inside thr house. My coop roof got ripped off on one side. I'm replacing with metal roofing this week. Then they will go out.

As for goats protecting against coyotes. My experience has said nope. Maybe against one but a pack or even just two coyotes will take down a goat easily. And it needs to be thr larger breed goat. Mine are pygmies. Small, expect expect the dad buck. He looks like a Sannan to me. Taller.

I love living in the country but .......... I literally HATE snakes. I don't care if they are 'good snakes' or bad snakes, I hate them all. A few weeks ago I thought I heard something in my upper kitchen cabinets. You know -- the cabinets that are empty because they are useless to people 5 foot tall. So I decided to go look and opened the cabinet door by the kitchen sink and there is a damn snake staring at me, wound all around my spices! I literally almost had a heart attack, couldn't breathe .. and I slammed the door and ran. Called my niece's husband to come over and he got that SOB out and he was 5 feet long!! Niece's husband says ...'it's a GOOD snake, a rat snake" and it kills bad snakes. I know this is true. I have a video of a very large rat snake killing a Copperhead in my front yard while my barn cats watched with interest!

Niece's H took the kitchen cabinet snake out to the edge of my property and freed it. A week later my neighbor across the road (the Hospice nurse) woke up and found that damn snake in her bedroom! He traveled across the road. Pictures were taken so I know it's the same snake. She isn't afraid of snakes so there she is out in her front yard, her sister taking pictures of her holding kitchen cabinet snake! She then took him/her to the back of her property where there is a small pond. I hope he drowns!

So this morning I went into my utility room closet to get the sweeper and what do I see??!! A snake skin that is well over 6 feet long. I have been having a 'feeling' there is a second snake inside. I was in that utility room closet a week ago and that dang snake skin was not in there.

At lease my niece's husband found the snake entry point -- around my dryer vent. Did I say how much I hate snakes?!! Saying it again! So now I have to watch out for the mate that I just KNOW is still in this house. My house is fairly large with three unused bedroom that I mainly keep the doors closed so this Asswipe could be anywhere in this house! I'm inviting some people over tonight to help me hunt it down. THIS time he/she will NOT get a free pass. I'm going to beat it with a baseball bat. Better the snake dies by baseball bat than me die of a heart attack! Everyone out this way are having issues with snakes - getting in their houses and cars, under vehicle hoods, etc. I have never had this problem with snakes before and would only occasionally see one when I'd be mowing or sitting outside. The barn cats do a great job of keeping them at bay away from the house. I know it's because it's so hot and snakes are seeking cool places. But I don't CARE.

I am terrified of snakes. I hope you find snake number two!!! That is just awful.

We had one in our garage a few years ago. My H won't kill them so instead he transports them a few miles away so they won't come back. I spotted it while getting out of my car. I ran out of the garage like I was running for my life yelling SNAKE!!!! rolleyes laugh
