Doe and Fawn

This Doe and Fawn have been showing up on our son’s property each afternoon or evening. If you just go about your business and don’t make sudden moves they are content to graze with us in the distance.

If you look carefully through the chicken coop you can see them. The fawn is watching me and the doe is busy grazing. That black and white speckled cock a doodle doer is destined for the cook pot soon! In the meantime we are eating lots of eggs!

  1. I think many deer in the Northwest have realized that the safest way to avoid hunters with rifles is to stay close to human habitation. Here in the area between North Bend and Snoqualmie we have a herd of elk we love to see.

  2. Roger said this morning that he thinks he’d like to get some hens! I told him make sure they’re colorful – the white ones aren’t as good for the blog 😉

  3. Sweet sight! That rooster is sure pretty, but I know how they can be after a while. The hens will still lay eggs without him! They just won’t be fertile.

  4. I hope that the deer are not munching on the garden. My goodness, what a handsome fellow to be heading for the cookpot. Don’t let him know…
