Baling the hay


I'm a bit behind on my video editing but I filmed this in mid July on the day our first hay crop was baled. We now have lots of feed for the sheep and goats to get us through the winter.

Keeping the lane clear


One of our lambs is still small enough to get under the gate to our sheep field. She then does a good job of keeping the vegetation down!

Moving the quail chicks


A few weeks ago, 11 quail chicks were hatched in the incubator. Earlier this week, we moved the 8 surviving chicks from the brooder box to the quail house, their new permanent home.

At last the hay crop is in


Our new hayfield produced 840 bales of hay. It took us 9 days to collect them in and build 7 haystacks but today, the job was finished!

Nesting ducks

 We have 3 broody ducks at the moment. I discovered this nest a few days ago. Below the duck is on the nest.

We have one duck that's set up her nest in a pot next to the quail house. And it seems we have another duck nest, this time in one of the henhouses. Hatching is expected in early July.
