our own little farm

Some people might think we collect children.  That's ridiculous.  After all, we only have four children.  Let me tell you what we do collect, though.  Pets! 

Currently, we have:

6 fish

1 snake (found in the backyard, surrounded by a circle of chickens)

7 chickens, and 1 rabbit who thinks he's a chicken (more on that later)


One of our chickens lives in the house.  I know.  You are so jealous.  After all, not just anyone gets to have a chicken in their house
(She has a broken leg, and will hopefully re-join the flock outdoors in the near future.)

Having your own little farm is educational, right?  And we homeschool.  So....that's my excuse, and I'm sticking to it.

Hello Kiara,
Boy, does that bring back memories. We have had it all as well--except the snake. We had a bull frog & lizards though. We have had so many pets and we have loved them all! What fun and it is great and educational for the kids. I think the one that amazed us the most, even though it was really brief was the gopher in a 10 gallon tank with dirt. Arlan Roest had a pet gopher for quite a while in a large narrow glass enclosure and they really liked seeing all the tunnels and how it lived. Very unique. Have fun & don't forget to make your zookeeper rounds. ;)
Tootles, Sandy

That's great, Sandy! I am laughing, imagining a pet gopher on top of all of this. What a cool thing to watch it tunnel!
This is enough for now, though.... We didn't even include the lizards and caterpillars they catch regularly, and the bullfrog that's probably still hibernating in the little pond Lucas keeps. :)

What?? And here I thought you DID collect children! My mistake.
Loving your farm so far--- but I think you might be missing a few childhood favorites; ducks, quail, turtles, a dog, hissing cockroaches.... I'll be sure to mention that to L soon. I'm sure his uncle Ian could hook him up. All in the name of animal rescue of course!

Love the photos and I am soooooooooooo jealous of the chickens. I'm working on the hubby for some myself :).

I can't wait to hear about the rabbit who thinks he's a chicken!! Love that picture!

I really want chickens, too, but it won't happen while we live in this house. After fighting to keep our pet potbellied pigs, we won but were specifically told not to get any ideas about keeping chickens or goats! lol (I'd love to get fainting goats, too!)

Your pond is so cute. Lucas really maintains it? I'd love to get one but don't want to end up doing all the work!
