Elsa, our fearless tennis ball guardian dog. Livestock, what livestock?
Don't contact her unless you have a ball to share.
Three members of our mostly fearful flock of hens. We gave them all names of physically or creatively brave women to inspire them: Rosa, the partridge rock; Lucy, the gold comet; and Amelia, the speckled Sussex (Georgia and Nadine flew the coop early, so-to-speak). You figure out the historic women!
2016 update: we recently added three young Black Australorps and 2 Cuckoo Marans to the flock--looking for more inspirational names (and ways to tell them apart!). 2017 UPDATE: A dead-of-night visit by an evil weasel left us sad and hen-less for a few weeks, but we have fortified the coop and introduced four new ladies who have been keeping us well stocked with eggs. 2018 UPDATE: Weasel strikes again! No hens make the move to the coast with us.
2019 UPDATE: We renovated an old coop, put up a fenced run behind the greenhouse, and welcomed four new ladies, named, as before, for inspiring, creative, brave, and passionate women.
From left to right: Frida, Pearl, Willa, and Greta. Here's hoping they survive the overhead hawks to someday lay some eggs! That was quick: Willa literally 'flew the coop' to meet her coyote demise. So we learned how to trim wings pronto! We then added two lovely barnevelder hens: Joni and Toni, rounding out our flock of inspired ladies and adding some diversity to our egg color selection! Sisu Ranch's Eggcellent Eggs are occasionally available for sale--if you are on the pulse!
