We had more snow and ice today. Not a lot, but enough to make the girls go back in after they were just enjoying their first day out out of the enclosed coop run in over a week due to the snow, bitter cold, and wind.

Been a busy week around our place. Chickens are happy and hopefully laying more on a more regular basis. The dogs and cat are happy with more sun than rain. Flowers were enjoying the rain and are blooming like crazy now in the sun. Got a fun comment on my last post from the UK, its neat to learn about other areas of the … Read More Flowers and Fun

The baby’s are officially out with the big girls all the time. They are still in their own area of the coop and protected by a fence.
