One of Many Chicks

One of Many Chicks

Our mini farm has been the perfect place to be during the lockdown.  We have plenty of fresh eggs, vegetables from the garden and the company of all our animals.  Even though our older chickens are still producing plenty of eggs, over time they slow down production and we keep them as pets.  Every so often we order chicks from McMurry Hatchery which arrive in a box full of very cute and loud peepers.

Otherwise, the sheep were shorn and their wool is growing back.  Poppy, our foundling kitten is growing like a weed.

My oldest daughter and her two classmates who lived with us during the lockdown, are going back to Georgia Tech and will take most classes online.  They will be missed.  My youngest daughter is starting her freshman year at Berkley from home and my son will be going to middle school one day a week in person and the rest from home. It is a strange year 2020, lets hope 2021 is a bit more normal.
