Goat cheese

Last week end I went out to see Vicky in Hansville. She now has a creamery that she sells her goats milk from. I have been wanting to make cheese for a while so I bought some of her goats milk. Once I got all the stuff together to make it, I thought it would be easy. Well I had to email Vicky a few times. My 1st problem was this morning there was no curds just milk. Vicky suggested that I add more rennet. Which worked. So after dinner I wrapped up my curds so they can drain for a few hours. Once that is done then I can put the cheese in a container and tomorrow morning I want to add some chives and garlic. I also hope to get pictures of the finished product and have some comments on how it tastes. So stay tuned as the cheese turns :D

Misshelaineous stuff

Rai and I went to my friend Jeannie's grandson Korbin's 1st birthday party on Saturday. As you can see she was very tired afterwards.

Here is a couple pictures of Dave and I when we went camping on the Elwah river for 3 days. It was suppose to rain the whole time but it only did it when we were hiking out to go home.

This is a fountain that my father in law made, it is pretty cool looking and I love the sound the water makes.

This is my white rock hen who has gone broody....she has 4 rhode island red eggs under her, I am hoping they will hatch.

Here is updates on how my silkies looking. I think that the black one may be a rooster so his name stays Fred and the white one is a hen so she is staying Ethel.

Our chickens

The white rocks have started laying. In one weeks time their eggs doubled in size from Pullet to huge brown eggs and soon the rhode island red bantam hen will be also.

Here is a few pictures of our chickens and my little helper Rai. She is just the right size to fit in the bantam coop.

I love special buttons and these are just so cute! Anyone else love buttons? I have white rock hens so this was about as close to the breed as I could get in buttons.

Silkie chicks

I picked up these cuties in Bremerton yesterday. I thought I was bringing home 2-4 week old buff's but ended up with 3-buffs and 1 white and black 6 week old chicks. They are funny looking right now but when the feather out they should be beautiful birds.

Thanks Jason for giving me the silkies!

rhode island red bantams

Here is pictures of my little rhode island red bantams. They are about 2 months old. Since I had some issues with cats in our yard. I keep them in a huge cage where they have plenty of room and during the day I have them in a pen so they get to get bugs and weeds.

Here is some things we have in our garden this year. Along with my bantam chicken lucky, she is lucky because she survived an attack on her cage mate 2 times. So she is going to be my only small chicken.

New Chicken coop

Dave had been putting up siding on our house and a new window this week end and we had enough to build
a new chicken coop that is now in the back yard. The old window is now the door to the coop and there is a back door to reach in to gather the eggs each day. It is in a very shady spot where there is plenty for them to eat besides their feed. I have 4 hens now and I am looking for a broody bantam hen so I can buy fertile eggs to hatch. So now all my pests oh I mean pets are in the back yard in their own homes.
Thank you hunny for making them a nice place to live!

Sweet Pea and Peter's kits

Our holland lop kits, they are 1 week old and will be opening their eyes real soon.

It looks like one is already taking after Peter as he had tried to jump from my hand into Julie's lap.

They look like they will be torts but not sure if the color will be blue like Peter is. Sweet Pea is a smoke pearl.

The rabbits have a home

This is my new rabbit home. It is under our cedar tree so there is shade and sun when the door is open. Plenty of ventalation during the summer and can be closed up more if needed in the winter.
