Olly visiting the garden shed.
He hears the chicks inside
The other day we finally had sunshine...it was a good day to get outside and do some work around the farm. I cleaned the chicken coop and raked some of the soil around the outside to get ready for when we throw down some grass seed. I will be SO happy to finally have grass and not dirt all around the house. You can just imagine what a mess 3 dogs (one HUGE pup included) can make running and playing in dirt and then coming onto the back porch! In between chores I went in and got my camera and spent time with some of the animals...the cats and chickens were enjoying the sunshine and warm temperature and the dogs were spending time watching the chickens and the cats. I know the dogs wanted to do more than just lay in the sunshine...they were waiting for one of the chickens to fly over the fence or for one of the cats to wander over so they could have some fun! Unfortunately for them everyone was feeling rather lazy and just wanted to lay around and enjoy the sunshine.
