So about a week and a half ago, we lost another chicken, Muffin, to a predator.
Right after the incident, my family and I looked at the trail camera we have in our yard. On it, we found photos of a (beautiful!) black cat wandering around our yard. I'm 99% positive that is what got Muffin.
At the "Scene of the Crime", we found a huge pile of white feathers. We thought it was very strange, since Muffin had yellow-orange feathers. It turns out, Marshmallow, one of our other chickens, was seemingly snatched by the cat, and was able to escape. The cat then went after Muffin, likely an easy target because she was in shock of what she just happened with Marshmallow.
Last night, we looked at the newest batch of photos on the camera, and guess who we saw on it?
I'll get the photos on my computer, and I'll post them later.
Have a nice afternoon!
By the way, Marshmallow is recovering well from her little tussle with the cat. She's been taking it easy for the past week, and I'm confident she'll bounce back soon and become the loud, persistent chicken she is! <3

On August 6th, it will have been one year since I started up this blog. I haven't been very active on it for quite some time, but I hope to change that soon. I just want to say thanks to all of you out there who continue to read my blog. Have a wonderful day!
P.S., I'm going to the county fair tonight to see how my entries did this year. Wish me luck!

These two photos show the flooding that occurred on two of our trails during the flood on Wednesday. I'm happy to say that the water levels have gone down greatly here at my house, though many others have not been as lucky.
Have a great Friday!

HOLY COW! Where is Noah when ya need him?! Duluth has accumulated almost 9 inches of rain in the last 12 hours, and it's caused a flash flood throughout the city! Here's a couple pictures of the culvert down by my driveway that is flooding our woods. This culvert hasn't flown much at all in the last few years, but man is it flowing now! If I get more pictures, I'll add them asap! **Here's the link to my youtube video of the culvert! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-R7i2isk1Bg&feature=plcp

Good evening! This weekend has been absolutely beautiful weather-wise. The temperature has been up to 55 degrees! Naturally, I decided to have the chickens run around outside for a while while I enjoy the outdoors. They ate some grass for while and then went off to go take some dust-baths. The snow we got up here on Leap Day is melting fast! With temperatures like this, and no snow, we're certain to have a wonderful spring!
Have a great week!

Good afternoon! So who's excited for the Super Bowl? I AM! It's another excuse to lay on the couch and eat fattening foods! (Just kidding!) I enjoy watching the commercials. So, just a little while ago, we went out to check on the chickens, and we found this little guy! Isn't he CUTE? He's a star-nosed mole, not a shrew like we originally thought. Have fun watching the big game tonight!
