We basically dropped off the face of the blogging planet after our last post, SO sorry. Today we provide an update on what we have been up to in the past couple of months.
Things are slowing down here at The Wild Paduanos, but that doesn't mean we stop "working." Find out what we are up to during The Slow Season.
Our new chicks are quite the trouble makers and gave us a couple of days with some big adrenaline rushes. Just how did we manage these mischief makers on our backyard homestead? You'll have to read more to find out.
Integrating new chicks into an existing flock can be nerve wracking. It takes patience, and a little bribery of the older hens. This is our second year adding chicks, so we are still learning new things all the time.
We had a small loss in our backyard homestead this past week. Loss is always hard to deal with, but this one was a bit extra hard.
The Wild Paduanos are working towards a dream. It might be a crazy dream to some, but it's our dream. We've been working really hard lately on some new skills to achieve our homesteading dreams. Come see what it's all about.
To be a successful homesteader, there are certain skills needed. Read about what skills we are learning to acquire while homesteading our backyard!
