Here is Mark showing them off
Mark also dug out his old recurve bow out of a storage about a week ago. We took it out today and practiced some target shooting. There is a lot of muscle memory involved. It has been about fifteen years since I had a bow of my own and did regular shooting with the 'same feel'... I had about two hours practice today and was able to get everything mostly on or very close to the target (a 2 foot by 2 foot piece of styrofoam on blocks). We will do more practice later. I was impressed how kneeling with the bow the memories came back of how to swing it over my neck to the side, how to counterbalance the quiver when I knelt and hold it to the side when walking etc etc... little things you don't even remember until you are in the same position again.
Father and daughter getting ready to check for more eggs.
A large brown one in the nesting box, and one more out in the yard.
That was two more eggs, and that makes six for six. They are happy chickens.
Esme, practicing at being a chicken whisperer. She talked to them for quite a bit. Then we all went and ran a new water pipe from the hydrant to the chicken coop fence, before dinner.
