A Week in Farm Photos - Jan 6th - 12th

Winter in Virginia is in full swing...which basically means lots of brown grass, dirt and mud.  Not a picturesque New England snowy landscape by any stretch of the imagination, we look forward to spring, which fortunately arrives here much earlier than it does up north! 












Join us on Facebook for more great shots all week long!

  5. Lisa,
    Enjoy this beautiful VA weather!! Will you be riding your horse(s) today? It's perfect for it. Your Lavender Orpington is lovely (so uplifting to look at a picture of a Lavender Orp that is in one piece - LOL!). HUGS -

    1. So sorry Leigh. I read your post about yours. How heartbreaking. They are beautiful hens and mine is wanting to be broody so in the spring she might make a wonderful mother.

      I am embarrassed to admit we don't ride them! Who has time for that kind of leisure pursuit ;0) They are spoiled like the rest of our animals.

    2. Broody hens are the BEST incubators in the world! Will you be hatching some eggs under her? I so look forward to pictures of chicks running about your beautiful farm!

      Yes - my LO hen was a sad loss. She was a beautiful girl. I got her at the Gilmanor swap (near Richmond) in the fall. I have one more I got at the same time that is doing well (knock on wood). Will you be going to the Gilmanor spring swap (May 4th)?? It would be a lot of fun to get to meet you!

    3. If you send me the info I just might go. I would love to meet you. I am hoping one of my girls will cooperate and be broody to coincide with when I'm ready to hatch!

  6. The address is:
    12187 Chewning Rd,
    Glen Allen, VA 23059

    Hundreds of people come to each swap. There is usually a spring and fall swap each year, and it is certainly the largest poultry event in VA. (It really is too bad we don't have more fairs and shows around here.) It's an amazing opportunity to meet folks from all over. I live 4 hours away, but I car pool (truck pool) with a friend and all the chickens we're taking.

  7. I would love to have some chickens! Those eggs look so yummy. I go through so many eggs, it would make perfect sense for me to be raising my own chicks, but we live right in the middle of town. :-(

    Cute ducks too. My son keeps asking me for a duck.
