Because this is a farm.
This past week has been unbelievably beautiful. A solid week of nothing but sunshine and warm weather. Our second mini summer so to speak. It allowed me to get a lot of things done before winter comes. Is today the first day of fall or tomorrow? Doesn't matter, September first is the beginning of fall for me.
I haven't been to any auctions or much of anything regarding country life this year. I haven't really missed the animals, there were a few days I did but not many. Today I went to a small animal auction. My intention was to maybe pick up some rabbits or something. I feel a farm should have some kind of animal other than my old cat.
There were a few things I liked but they went really high in price so I stopped bidding. I mostly went because I love a good auction. Near the end of the sale, a box with three chicks came up and nobody was bidding. I could tell two were males and the other was not so clear, so I bought them.
Meet the new cast of characters. A box of chicks for a gay man.. Chick-fil-gay?
Unfortunately when I took them out of the box, I realized all three chicks were roosters. Anyway that doesn't matter, I just want them to look at, I only paid $1 for each of them. I got them because this is a farm and a farm should have something running around, people look at you funny when you tell them there are no animals here. At least now I can say yes. Once the garden is completely finished, I'm going to let them run around in there during the day. It's fenced so nothing can get to them.
I went in this evening to put some tools away in the barn, it was nice to heard some little noises instead of the deafening silence.
