Here I am sorting the fish and creatures of the pond out of the muck and putting them in fresh water to take to the big pond. You can see mud doesn't bother me. Can't wait til our child gets to play in the mud. Hehe!
Here is my dad releasing the fish, pollywogs, and crawdads into the big pond. It's amazing how big that pond is. I think Sig was trying to help too. We rescued about 180 fish, including bass and some blue gill and probably about 100 pollywogs and maybe 10-15 crawdads. What a success. When we initially released them some of the fish were in shock or we thought were dead, but when we came back in a couple hours they were all gone so I figure they all survived and swam away. Now the pond is very muddy because of all the rain we had. Between rains we try to feed them when it isn't too muddy and now that it has rained so much the other pond has filled up and over flowed atleast once. During the summer the little pond will be full of fish again so we might have to do this again next year.

Free Roosters to Good Homes. I just have too many. They are Blue Standard Cochins. Very sweet boys. They wouldn't hurt a fly (ok, maybe a fly), but are very docile towards humans. If you know anyone let me know, if you need hens I can sell a couple of them also. I have blue hens that can go with them.
This is Honeydew who is due in late February. She is already huge. She had a big barrel to start out with, but now that she is pregnant she is huge. Were thinking atleast 3 if not 4. She had 3 last time she was bred. If I can get close enough to Krystal I will try to take a picture of her too. She is getting pretty big and is due right after Honey is.
