The girls decide

Have to run – we are leaving for the Bantam Swap early so here are yesterdays pics.

What is wrong with those pictures?  Naughty opportunistic pigs taking advantage of high winds and broken gates. And combine without fuss. And as they will be ten months in three weeks and are quite big enough, according to my pig lady,  I have left well alone.


Terribly windy yesterday.

The chicks are the best off inside with their heated table.

I have put the incubator on the heat  up as I hope to find some fertile eggs at the bantam swap.


The winds were so high yesterday that they lifted the chicken shelter and threw it across the field.  It was still too windy to move it in the light yesterday so we will replace it later today. I hope there is nothing flattened under there.

Back soon.

  3. Manu might enjoy girls of similar stature this time. Glad the enterprise did not make contact with the barn wall. Looking forward to meeting the new miniature donkey tomorrow 🙂 Laura

  4. oh that sucks! we had that happen a month ago. Lost a bunch of our fancy chooks …. ug.

  5. I’m picturing chickens in that shelter as it was blown about. I’m picturing the tornado house in Wizard of Oz, but with Chickens.

  6. Lovely piggies.
    I can’t wait to see what you come home with today. I expect you are a little better prepared than my sister was, years ago, when she went to a similar sale to just check it out — and returned home with a pony in the back seat of a Volkswagen Beatle! Hope you’re having fun ~ Mame 🙂

    • Ack — I didn’t look back to see you’ve returned home already before I posted. So sad the weather isn’t cooperating. Ah well, there is always next year, I suppose, or maybe even other ‘swaps’ during the summer.

      • haha… not just any car, but a VW bug! lol…. (and just noticed my typo above… was a Beetle)

  7. Possibly good thing there was nothing to tempt you at the swap; you may be awash with piglets soon enough.
