My job is in the city so I commute about an hour in the morning and afternoon. Because of this, I miss a lot of the farm happenings. This past Saturday morning found my husband out hunting so it was left to me to let out the chickens out from the Chicken Wagon and to let the sheep out into the big field. I was up and out the door just as the sun was topping the trees to take care of them. On the way out, I grabbed some bread that was on the south end of fresh and the cattle stick in case our ram, Rambo, decided to have a go at me and walked down to the farm. It was a beautiful morning.
Having a whole flock of sheep that are happy to see you is a great way to start the day. We all made our way out to the big field where the Chicken Wagon is parked. I could see the chickens at the windows and were anxious to start their day. After scattering the bread around for them and the sheep, I opened the door and scooted around to the back of the chicken wagon so I would not get rooster attacked. Between the rooster and the ram, you really have to stay on your toes.
I love to hear happy chickens singing and clucking.
