I think this little Welsh Harlequin hen is a bit jealous of Big Red’s beard and wondering if she can grow one. I must admit, it is getting pretty long and fluffy and he seems to be quite proud of it. Sharing for #turkeysnoodsunday hosted by @5rfarmoregon

My current view. Just arrived in Houston and I’ll be here till Wednesday. I had so much stress this past week making sure everything on the farm was prepared for me to leave for 3 days. Anyone that has lots of animals knows that feeling. Especially with 5 pregnant cows that could calve at any time 🙄 Luckily I have my wonderful friend @farrah.rose feeding for me and making sure no one dies while I’m gone 😂 But also I had to find “city” clothes in my closet. I still wore cowboy boots though because I refuse to give those up 🤷🏼‍♀️ #farmher

We had an actual dinosaur sighting at the farm tonight.

This Wyandotte aggressively disapproves of me taking photographs of her.

Do y’all remember that giant goose egg? Well it turned out to be a double yolker, with two MASSIVE yolks and weighed in at a whopping 10.4 ounces. For reference, most of my goose eggs are around the 6 ounce mark. I had it scrambled with some reindeer sausage and it was delicious. And very, very filling as you can imagine 😂 Swipe left to see more pictures!

Blue is one of my favorite roosters, because of both personality and looks. He’s always on high alert for any signs of danger to his girls and will even teach my giant Black Jersey Giant rooster a lesson or two. I wish I had more porcelain cochins but sadly he’s my only one. For now 😉 sharing for #redwattlewednesday hosted by @rogerscreekfarm 💙

I’m starting to think I should get Violet a “Caution: Wide Load” sign 😂 Everyone thinks she’s having twins and I’m starting to get concerned that they’ve all cursed me to have a heifer that’ll have twins. But as long as everyone is safe and she takes them both I wouldn’t mind. The anticipation is starting to kill me though 😐

I feel like Jack is doing this on purpose. I had just gotten almost every burr off of him the day before and then he does this. Apparently the only nice places to eat in the 2.5 acre pasture are around the few cockle burr bushes. Now he won’t let me pull them out. Maybe he’s trying to go for some sort of fashion statement. Or he’s upset with me because I’ve separated him from his girls. I’ll never understand bulls 🤷🏼‍♀️

Lilac is the teeniest of tiniest bantams and therefore has the teeniest of tiniest mohawks. Sharing for #mohawkmonday hosted by @rustymoosefarm 🖤

My oldest goose decided to outdo herself today with this massive freaking egg. On the right (white egg) is a normal sized goose egg and the bottom (brown egg) is a normal sized chicken egg! This thing is massive! We were joking that we don’t want to see what her backside looks like 😂😩

Aaron (my fiancé) and Rosie (my cow) have a strange relationship. I think Rosie can’t decide if she loves him or not but I know I love him when I see him making an effort to bond with my cows, whom I would die/kill for. Also couldn’t pass up the opportunity to capture that sunset 😍

Daisy’s got those beautiful Charolais curls but I think hers are in need of a brushing 🤔

The sunsets lately have been jaw dropping

I was getting a lot of retro vibes from today’s eggs so naturally I had to photograph them on the ancient faux brick linoleum floors.

This pretty boy wanted to share his wattles for a last minute #redwattlewednesday hosted by Janice @rogerscreekfarm ❤️ He’s a full sized Buff Cochin cockerel and he’s a big giant blonde fluff ball! I can’t decide on a name for him so I’ve just been calling him Goldie 😂🤷🏼‍♀️ PS peep the creepy Welsummer in back left corner 😂😳
