Lizards & Chickens Oh my!

I am trying a new breed of chicken...wild I call them...they so far have outsmarted the coons and coyotes!

Also we have added some veiled chameleons for some natural bug killing! So cute!

  Oh yes and lets not forget about those scrumptious breaded red wattle pork chops we had for dinner a few nights back. Best pork I ever ate!
