Snow Dogs

Our boys love the snow. Especially Chase… Chase would stay out in the snow with us as long as we would let him. But usually we make him go in every so often as his poor paws gets caked with snow so we make him go in to warm up. In the 3 feet of snow we had a couple weeks ago it was a … Read More Snow Dogs

Helpers

When it is snowy, icy, or windy we check on the chickens a lot as they are usually inside their run. We are making sure they have food, water, and their laying boxes are clean. We also collect the eggs. So when we go outside we have a couple of helpers who go with us. Chase is our biggest helper. He is always up … Read More Helpers

Chickens in the Snow

I had a comment about chickens in the snow on my last post that inspired me to share about my snow dare devils. I know most chickens will avoid the snow and not even think about going out in it. I have a couple of chickens who take the risks even in the 3 feet of snow they had to get out… And take a … Read More Chickens in the Snow

Snow Chickens

Yesterday it snowed quite a bit and today the ice and icy rain is making everything a slick mess. The dogs were slipping and sliding all around like they were on a ice rink. It made me feel bad they were slipping, but it was cute to see them try to stay upright. The chickens are staying in their coop/run again today. They have a … Read More Snow Chickens

More Snow?

Weather man said we may get more snow tonight and tomorrow… we still have snow from the last 3 feet. I know that’s not a lot compared to what some other Midwest states and other places get, but it’s a lot for us. Anyways, the new snow forecast reminded me I promised to share more snow pictures with you from the last snow so … Read More More Snow?

After and Between…

It’s a couple days after Christmas and a few days until the new year. In our house that is recoup time between the holidays. Our Christmas was nice and the kitten had a great but tiring first Christmas and is currently fast asleep… Chase on the other hand humored me earlier today and put on the ‘Grinch who stole Christmas’ antlers and looks just … Read More After and Between…

Happy Belated Thanksgiving!

I have been avoiding my blog for a couple weeks because I had a happy surprise and I couldn’t post about yet. Why you may ask?? Because my mom reads my blog and I hadn’t told her yet and I wanted it to be a surprise for her and my step dad as well. So my thankful post this year starts with this… WE … Read More Happy Belated Thanksgiving!

Growing and Laying

Our baby chicks aren’t so babyish anymore… sad face 😦 Two of our Columbian Rock Crosses have started laying (but not the one pictured below)… And maybe even one of my New Hampshire…. Their eggs have been so little and cute 🙂 No yokes in them at first, but now they are getting a little bigger so we’ll see when I crack open a … Read More Growing and Laying

Beauty Filled Day

Our little piece of God’s land had some nice weather today and earlier this week. It was nice enough that the dogs laid in the yard and not in the shade of the porch. Baxter kept trying not to look at me when I was walking around checking on the chickens and snapping shots of him. He used to pose for me, but anymore … Read More Beauty Filled Day
