Chicken feed…..it ain’t chicken feed.

Been awhile since I’ve had time to write. Life on the little farm has been HECTIC and busy with building housing for all the little creatures we’ve collected so far. I know, I know….you are supposed to build the pens and fences FIRST, and then buy the animals. What can I say, we did it […]

The Last Task of the Day…

Are these little guys cute or WHAT? The books I have read […]
