April 2012 Facebook Farm Statuses

  • We have ducklings!!! Well, duckling. I watched the last half of the hatching, which was cool. It’s surprising that it survived considering all of the fat ducks stepping on it. I think it’s time for the non-mother ducks to move to another coop for a few weeks…
  • I may still be working at nearly 9pm, and I’m due up at 6:30 for an OS telecom, but both of those things happen with a puppy in my lap. I call that an epic win!
  • A second duckling is hatching! I picked up the egg and it was moving and breaking out. On a related note, mother ducks *really* don’t like it when you pick up the hatching egg. I probably should do that less.
  • You know you’re a farmer when you have to move the cars around to get the tractor out…
  • We had two big projects planned for the four-day weekend and had them both done by 11am on day two. Our back-up project is almost done and we have two days left. At this rate I’ll be forced to do some projects in the house! That just won’t do…
  • I just put the toilet seat down like a gentleman. I killed a fly with it like a ninja. Yes, I am a Gentleman Ninja Famer!
  • Just picked up our second lamb from the butcher. Todd II, may you rest in peace… in my stomach.
  • Third snake since we’ve been here, and this one was much bigger. AND, my old farmer neighbour hasn’t had one!
  • Home-grown leg of goat with home-grown beer and then home-grown smores off of our home-made BBQ. There’s a theme here… 🙂
Not sure how he got in the freezer, but he was not happy about it.
