Well, Hurricane Delta came to town. Not much damage but another 2 days without electricity. Todat was a bee class day so not much going on at Farm except that we emptied the chicken coop! All birds outside all day! Everybody was relatively easy to wrangle back in but we have this one Production Red hen that wants to stay out all night.....and we finally found the clutch of eggs! 16 in all! What a boon!

And, of course a dose of Captain Spiderman.......who got a new Batman mask from Granna!

But, Cap had to eat his cookie from yesterday so he took the mask off......for a few minutes!

All in all.....a good day!

Miss @MuldrowHomeFarm,

Thanks for the pictures and the update. Yesterday I intended on asking how hurricane Delta affected you but forgot. I am glad to know you suffered no wind damage. I saw where it affected Mr. @Mike CHS, Miss @farmerjan, and Miss @Mini Horses, providing them with a good bit of rain.

All we got was 3 days of rainy, showery, drizzly weather out of Delta. Still misty drizzle today. Haven't checked the total rain yet. We were on the more northern end of it, as it was pushing as much east as it was north.... which is fine. Ground got a good drink of water; grass is as green as ever. Trees are all losing leaves fast, don't think there will be as much color as I originally thought if they keep falling so fast. Hoping to get a couple batches of them off the maple at the other house "swept up" for the chickens for the winter. Then the maple here.It is not losing leaves much at all yet. Possible 30's at night after the next real front comes through on Friday....

We had hoped that winter was here but we are back to high 80's during the day. Now granted, we will take that over 90's....or at least I will. DH LOVES to sweat and hates winter.
Today was pretty good. We burned a lot of limbs and clean out for the expansion of the Alpaca pen. We will start it on Thursday!
Will update with before and after pics!
But for now......Chickens!!

Also, replacement NuStock came.....same packaging but not crushed this time!
Here is a side by side comparison of Midnight's leg.
Top was Sept 14th. We didn't start NuStock until Sept 29th and honestly, it has been hit and miss to put it on her due to the crushed tubes. We have applied it 2 times 3 days apart, as directed. We should have applied more yesterday but will do it tomorrow.
I personally see improvement.......

Once again, we have dropped puppies at our gate. This is really getting old but my heart and DH's heart won't alliw us to do anything but vet them and start the exhausting search for good, safe homes. I hope anyone that every drops an animal goes straight to hell. I get that it is hard to take care of them but there are so many ways to get help before the animals get pregnant and many ways to get help after.
If I could, I would keep all these abandoned babies but I simply cannot. Here are the sweet faces from this dump. AND the update on the Alpaca Shed!

And this little Lady was with them.....so....3 babies about the same age....possible litter mates. 2 girls and one boy. Cooper, Bindi and Lady are currently being vetted and will hopefully find homes asap. Anyone want puppy or 3?!?!
