soaring eagle & queenington.

soaring eagle & queenington are getting pecked on by the turkeys. queenington is okay, but we had to put soaring eagle in the chick tractor! her neck has a bald spot, but she will be okay. we are making a about 100 by 100 pasture for them, so they should not do it for much longer.

hummus and radish.

instructions 

Drain chickpeas over a bowl to reserve the liquid. set them and the reserved liquid aside.

Add lemon juice, tahini, sunny paris, and drained chickpeas. process for 1-2 min and Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add reserved chickpea liquid, 1 tablespoon at a time, through the opening in the funnel and process until the mixture is smooth. The more liquid you add, the thinner the mixture will be.

put on a plate and cut up radish.

TO STORE

turkeys!

the tukeys live in the coop now! we also put them in the chicken tractor, so they are getting along with the chickens. the to Bresse roosters are pecking at them along with Astra, our Astra white chicken (you can see why we named her that!).

honey!

we will be able to gather honey from our bees very soon! our bees have already made honey, but we will have to wait before we can harvest the honey, because we want the bees to have some honey to eat. but we have a little honey comb though it smells like smoke and tastes plane.

breese chickens!

a couple months ago, we got breese chickens! now, they are laying eggs that are fertilized! breese chickens are meat-eaters. we got too roosters(boys), and 4 hens(girls). we also got rode island reds. my mom and dad think they are both hens, but i think they are a rooster and a hen.

rooster crowing!

today, our rooster crowed! we also put the bees in our hives! but the rooster crowing was the most exiting thing! the first time, he said “cocadoodl” without the “doo”. but putting the bees in the hives was still very fun!
