Please Keep The Poop Off The Patio

We absolutely love our chickens. They run around the yard all day like little dinosaurs and scratch up our lawn looking for insects, leaving their wonderful fertiliser behind, we get delicious fresh eggs from them (and we know what they were fed) and we love the fact that Sydney is growing up around farm animals. I love the

I Built a Chicken Tractor!

I built a chicken tractor! I bet you are probably thinking: "What in the heck is chicken tractor?!". So before your mind starts wandering to visions of a chicken-sized farm vehicle and our chickens driving it around the property going about hilarious adventures, a "chicken tractor" is really just a portable, floorless chicken coop. I decided to build

Mascotas Nuevas – Peces!

By: | Tags: | Comments: 9

Before I moved to Puerto Rico I was into fish-keeping and had 3 fishtanks in my house. When we moved to Puerto Rico I figured it would be too hot in our un-air conditioned house to keep a fishtank from overheating and pretty much struck that hobby off of my list. Lately, we have been talking with several

Mas Gallinas! Salmon Faverolle’s and Ameraucanas

After building a chicken coop and buying 6 chickens from the local agro last year, we've really come to enjoy what the chickens bring to the table. They eat bugs, fertilize the lawn and produce tasty fresh eggs for us to eat. Unfortunately, the agro assured us that the 6 chicks we purchased were all female, but we

When we moved to Puerto Rico, I was super stoked to hear that there are "no sharks" here. After hearing that, I did a little bit of research and there are actually sharks in Puerto Rico, but there had never been a shark attack on record and you do not see them in the water when you are

Rincon Horses Like Banana’s and Palm Trees

I don't know if you remember how much work it was for us to maintain our property when we first moved to Rincon, but it was some major work. It is quite possibly just as hard now, but maybe we are just used to working in the yard and have gotten better at it. Also, we hired a

Conner and Dianne made a great Turkey Chili for dinner last night. Afterwards, Summer and I went to Marks house for his home poker game. Summer and placed 3rd and 4th respectively and came home around 11:00pm. I went to bed and Summer was hanging with the dogs. Around 2:30am the dogs started flipping out, so I got

Kuta Gets Naked

By: | Tags: | Comments: 4

Kuta has a pretty thick coat, which is no bueno in the heat of Puerto Rico. Before I left for San Diego, we tried to shave him, but our clippers were too dull. So, when we got back a month later, he was a stinky, wooly mammoth. I just got the new clipper blades in the mail, so
