But still. It's difficult for me! As I flipped through the pictures, I found some of the first animals to visit the knob. I had already been keeping chickens for about a year when I came up with this great idea. I of course couldn't just buy new chicks, I wanted to hatch and raise my own. So, I built an isolated breeding pen for each species and set up pure breeding pairs. Eggs, brooding hens and voila, I hatched my own chicks.

Soon after the sheep of Windy Knob arrived in 2009. A dual purpose sheep, they lived up to be everything I had expected. A lot of lessons learned, lots of lambs born and a lot of late nights later, I wouldn't trade it for the world. It's just funny looking back, as I even find myself going "wait you then did what? Ulicny what were you thinking?"
