Welcome to our small homestead. Our homestead is small and located in Ada, OK in the South East part of the state. Being a very small homestead we have to make good use of our property and plan our adventures. As of right now we have Chickens, Rabbits, Aussies, and 4 Pot Belly Pigs. Currently we sell baby chicks, Aussie puppies, and soon Temuk Rabbits.

Operating as usual

Here is Alice's litter. 10 baby Australian Shepherds. Looks like 6 Merle and 4 tri color. It was funny this morning. I let Alice in for a while and she got under the table where I was sitting. I heard some noise and looked down and her came the first puppy. I quickly moved her to a safe place.

We do have another litter but haven't got them yet. Our black Tri girl, Harper, had a litter under our neighbors trailer. As soon as we can figure out what end she is under we will get them.

We've got Bielefelder chicks on our small homestead. These are a great dual purpose chickens. Roosters grow up to 12 pounds and hens get up to 10 pounds. They lay between 240 and 280 eggs a year. Another plus is Bielefelders are very docile and easy to manage.

Our little girl is ready. She is breathing hard, her sacks are full and dripping, and her tummy is rock hard. She won't like it but it's time to confine her.

She is one of the few full blood Aussies with a big beautiful tail.

It's been a long time since we posted on this page. We've been busy working and taking care of things and the time slipped away. Now we are both home full time and can spend time doing things we want to do. Our newest adventure is Pot Belly Pigs. We are ready for them.

Open Feeding Honey Bees, 5 Mins. To 3 Hrs.

Put my open bee feeders out yesterday. It took about 3 hours for them to wake up and come in full force. This is a short video of their progress.

Shock finding: More than 75 percent of all ‘honey’ sold in grocery stores contains no honey at all, by definition - Complete Health and Happiness

No surprise here. If you've never had it you would be surprised at the difference in the flavor and sweetness of pure honey from a hive and store bought.

Almost 80% of the brands from major grocery stores and pharmacies tested by Food Safety News had no trace of pollen. Add 100% without pollen in those little packets of honey provided by airlines and restaurants According to FSN, the lack of pollen in most conventional “honey” products is due to ...

I got a couple pics of the baby goat. She's a cutie. Hopefully get some pics of all 3 tomorrow. My wife had a bit of trouble dealing with our 4 Aussies and 1 bulldog. Apparently they thought they were chase toys. But after asking "do you want a spanking" 3 of them apparently said yes. Now they're leaving them alone

The goats are going in their own area outback but they were delivered to our yard. From what I understand its a little difficult to catch a goat lol

"The Taranov Method" with Adam Novitt

Well live and learn. That is if you're open to learning.

I didn't like the Taranov method of spliting hives but had to investigate. After watching a few videos, especially those made by Universities I see its actually easier. It actually does mimic a swarm. The bees cluster on the edge of the sheet exactly like a swarm would cluster. I was also wrong in my assumption of what bees actually swarm. I thought it was the field bees that left with the queen and its not. Its the nurse bees that swarm. Since the nurse bees aren't ready to fly they stay on the sheet and march into the new box. The field bees who are oriented fly back into the hive now sitting exactly where the old hive was located. Its interesting and amazing to watch. It also looks so much easier and less time consuming. This might be the way I start doing splits.
Beekeeping is fun.
