And the pretty little hens. My husband named them "Salt and Pepa"! Haha! So, I got Mr. T and Salt and Pepa! We did have some excitement today though one of the guineas across the street was crossing the street into our property and didn't make it. We think a lot of hawks were driven out of the fire areas around us into our area. One got a guinea. Bummer dude. My chickens were hiding in the goat shed. Good Rooster!

Here is hopefully what I'm going to bring home this weekend, but the colors I'm getting will be a black cockeral (under one year) and two pullets (hen under a year) one black and one white. As long as someone else doesn't come along and buy them first. Hope my friend in San Luis gets there first. : )

So far this fall and winter before spring we need to get the irrigation to the pasture in, fence the area where the 2 acre garden will be, build a barn and a garage, put all the fencing in around the perimeter of the property, pasture fencing in, re-seed the pasture, build a chicken pen. Some of these things we need to get done before Thanksgiving. Hopefully it won't rain too much we need to definately have the garage in before Thanksgiving to put tools and equipment in. Lots to do! Lots of adventures!
Here is a view of the two gates on the front of the dog pen so we can easily get to the side of the house or air conditioner units if we need to. On the right is the deck from here where we will put a ramp from the deck. I'll take another picture tomorrow to give more of a visual. Then we will put a dog door in and another gate on the deck.
