By now you all know that I tend to forget things. Well, no surprise, it happened again. I buy my chicken from a local farmer here in Oregon. The chickens are raised outdoors in the open air, free to roam and do the things that chickens do. Once a month the farmer makes the 90 minute drive to various points around the Portland area where we can pick up our orders. The last drop was Tuesday...and I forgot.
I could have waited until next month, but I need the chicken and I thought it would be a fun field trip for Princess and me. We found that a lot of the sheep were pregnant (although I don't think they call it that) and learned that not all sheep need to be sheared. Some sheep just shed. Who knew?! We met some cows, chickens, ducks and saw some pigs off in the distance exploring the woods (a.k.a. digging in the mud). We really enjoyed our first visit to the farm.
I took my camera but guess what?! I totally forgot to take pictures of Princess with the animals and exploring the farm. I did remember as we were leaving, so I have the photo above.
We were invited to come back in the Spring and bring some friends and a picnic lunch. There should be a lot of baby animals born in Spring. Freckle? HerbiFaery? Are you up for a field trip? How about you Rooster X?
