Tuesday's Show & Tail - - Acorns Keep Falling on my HEAD!

I'm LATE, but I'm  joining in Tuesdays' Show & Tail at West Virginia Treasures.  Show & Tail is all about sharing your pet pictures, creature features, and anything animal you may have heard about or experienced!  To link in at Angela's blog and meet other animal lovers, click HERE!

Wind and rain storms were all over our area yesterday, and the power was OUT!  When you have critters, chores don't end when the electricity does, so I was out checking on the girls - - and they were NOT HAPPY!  There are a lot of oak trees in them there woods - and the girls were getting pelted at every whim of the wind!
The last picture above shows that it knocked the feathers right off of them!  Poor things!  And see below, the Darned Barnevelder hen on the left -  missing some of her tail feathers?  OUCH!  An UN-happy TAIL - for sure!  That's Lena, on the right - she's an Americauna hen, and seems she fared better than the other girl!
Today I'll be working on all the things I couldn't do yesterday - power wasn't restored until the wee hours of the morning.  Time to go collect eggs right now, for starters, and then phone to set up a time to pick up more hay on Friday....
Sassy reminded me that we're nearly OUT!  Leave it to those bossy Corgi dogs - always tellin ya where to go and what to do when ya git there!

I'm thinking that it's only the female corgi kids who are the bossy ones, what do you think?
Raining acorns on the girls...can imagine that they were a tad perturbed! Just began getting fresh eggs from an Old Order lady who brings them to the library. The yolks are so yellow, making every recipe look so much richer.

Sorry about the weather. I wish I lived closer to be able to buy fresh eggs from you. I love them to bake with. I especially like a pound cake make with fresh, farm eggs. Your dogs are so cute! Love & blessings from NC!
