A Rainbow Over Our Farm Entrance
We live at the end of a winding drive on a ten acre farm near Waco TX. Shady oaks surround our home and grassy pastures. We enjoy spending time with our seven children, growing gardens, caring for our animals and sometimes making a project out in Dad's wood shop. The kids like to ride the ponies and romp with our four dogs. Picking beans or tomatoes, swinging on the rope swing, taking a spin on the "cowboy", or just a walk at sunset, we love life on our little farm.
Our New Chicken Coop
We have been working as a family, on the construction of a new chicken coop here on our farm. We are very excited about our new coop! We bought 12 Red Star laying hens and 26 Golden Laced Wyandotte chicks. We will be building a second run on the other side of the coop. We hope to eventually have meat birds on one side and laying hens on the other side. We put in large "stadium lights" on the backside of the coop to allow us to work in the garden at night to try to beat the Texas heat.
