Happy New Year

Well 2008 is here all ready. I still haven't finished all the things I had planned to do in 2007. AArrrggghhh.

I had a wonderful time over the Christmas break, spending time with my family. I know that this time isn't just about gifts but.... I got some gooduns'. Jamie bought me 50m of 6' chicken wire! I can't even think of all the things that will enable me to do, oh and a bag trolley. I hadn't heard them called this before, I'm not sure what I would have called them but probably "You know, those things you use to lift and move fridges with a handle and two wheels!"

This will be so handy as I have to leave the big bags of layers pellets in the boot of my car where the bloke from the shop puts them cause they are to heavy for me to lift!

He also gave me a flash sharp kitchen knife with a note attached that said "Not to be used to cut soap or in the garden!" Which was probably a good thing as the first thought into my head was 'Wow just what I need to divide those clumps of perennials'

I wasn't the only one to get a gift here on Gobbler's Run. Paul and Kelly, my beautiful sheep had been really good this year so Santa (cunningly disguised as Shane from up the road) bought them a huge round bale of pea straw. Thanks Santa (and Shane!)

I just thought I would enter the new year with a bit of a run down of whats going on here at the minute.

I have 3 chickens ready to go to there new home.

3 chickens that aren't to far from being ready to leave home.

1 chook sitting on 6 sebright eggs.

2 Sebrights sitting on about 20 eggs together ( I've tried to get in and thin out the eggs but boy for little chooks they are angry so I haven't been able to get near!)

2 turkeys sitting on fertile turkey eggs and

1 turkey sitting on non-fertile eggs (I will take her eggs away today but she cries when I have to do this and it breaks my heart)
I haven't worked out my new years resolutions yet but I'll post them when I do !
