I took photos of my breeding rooster and our first broody hen. He fathered these chicks and we hope to get another like him. He is fighting cock/Americana mix and the hen is an old English game hen. Both are alert to the flock and very protective birds to have on the farm.

A friend of ours called me Saturday morning to ask if we wanted to chop firewood. We can always use more firewood. So we loaded up our chainsaw, gas and gloves and headed to her house. Her son and brother were there to take us out into their woods to cut up some dry down trees. They also had a tractor with a splitter on it to split the wood up. We got a whole truck bed loaded and delivered to our house. Now our wood holder is full! We are all set if we have another cold snap.We had a lot of fun and learned a lot more about chainsaws. It is always best to have others with you in case of an accident.
