Chickens & Fords

Our chickens finally arrived, and they are super funny. We are really enjoying having them around.

26 total: Buff orphingtons, Speckled Sussex, Cuckoo Maran, Red-laced blue Wynadottes, Aracaunas, and the exotic Partridge Cochin who has fluffy legs – who we think is one of the roosters already but it’s hard to tell.


Garden is in and ready to go. We lucked out at this part of our property – this is the runoff area from the hill above, so the dirt is excellent and dark. It’s about 50 x 30 in size.

We’re still going to add a fence around it, then eventually a chicken tunnel from the coop into the garden. But we have a long time before the chickens will be big enough to hangout in the garden.

Corn, Beans, Tomatoes, Peppers, Red Onions, Potatoes, and more. Will have watermelon  off to the side in it’s own corral and squash varieties in the back.

I have spinach too, but it says to plant in the fall,  so we will wait on that.



The Ford projects are coming along, full engine rebuild kit for the Ford 4000 arrived and the Ford 2000 has the engine pulled and being cleaned to see what we can do there.

Some photos of the Fords below in the shop, Blue is 2000, yellow is 4000.
