The Reality of Life on the Homestead

  1. Such a sweet story! We have been homesteading for a few years now and just set up our blog. I was so happy to read this. Our first time mama geese just hatched a boy and a girl about three days ago and we had a close call with the boy. We knew the very real possibility of losing him and were thankful he pulled through, too. It doesn’t always work that way, so we were ecstatic. Thank you so much for sharing.

    1. Thank you so much for taking the time to read our story I think what makes homesteading so addictive is that there is no script and no roadmap you can do it your own way it’s a struggle and sad sometimes but I will take that over a mundane life of malls and movie theaters

  2. This was a great post! It is definitely hard when animals are not doing well, especially the young ones. Good on you all for having the patience and dedication to nurse your “little foot.” I hope everything keeps progressing in a positive way.

  3. I’m glad it turned out well for you. We had an unexpectedly broody hen who was so desperate to hatch her own chicks that she refused to do anything else and started to preen her feathers away from stress. We eventually got her some fertilized eggs to sit on and 3 of them successfully hatched (the others were probably unfertile). She was so happy to see her babies! I hope yours are happy too!

    1. It is funny how their instincts take over. They really have a mind of their own. We have a broody hen right now hoping for a few more chicks . And you can’t even tell that that little guy had a leg problem now have a great summer
