Chicken Neck (Yucky picture to follow)

I finally got a picture of the lady who has the feather’s missing from her neck. I wanted to post them to see if anyone had any additional advice. We are keeping the purple spray and a lotion on her daily. I may have to isolate her though if it doesn’t get better soon, but I hate to as she loves being outside and … Read More Chicken Neck (Yucky picture to follow)

We lost one…

I know my blog is usually happy and I try to have a positive spin… but tonight I am sad as we just lost our first chicken. I am sure some of you remember last year I wrote about our girl who has “poopy butt”. With help from my blogging chicken neighbors I was able to nurse her back to health. Last week we … Read More We lost one…

Baby chicks… looking back

I thought I would share a photo I found of our “ladies” when they were just “chicks”… Hope you have a blessed week 🙂

Home Values and Love

The boys are trying to stay as cool as they can today. It tried to rain earlier, but that only made the humidity go up. I was out earlier this morning in the garden watering and checking on the plants. Things seem to be growing well. I wanted to water before it got too hot and caused all the water to evaporate. When I … Read More Home Values and Love

Feeling Hot Hot Hot…

Its HOT here today… a nice change from the cold wet weather.  I feel more motivated to get out and do things in nice weather and I am happy for my garden vegetables too as the warmer weather seems to make them grow tall. On our walk the other day through the battlefields I saw some really old pumps. I always see things like … Read More Feeling Hot Hot Hot…

Monday… Monday… So good to me…

It’s the start to a new week. I thought I would share this photo with you from our hike yesterday. The boys told me they wanted to go back today, but the weather is not cooperating. The sun came out briefly and the chickens were ready to use this to their full advantage. (Sorry I think the chicken tail pictures are funny and cute 😉 ) … Read More Monday… Monday… So good to me…

The very bland morning…

It’s a still and very bland day… you know one of those days where there is no color in the sky and the sun is nowhere to be seen. It isn’t raining, it isn’t windy, it is just still. The chickens don’t seem happy about this type of day. They are out, but seem more skittish, especially after Chase had to scare away a bird that was getting … Read More The very bland morning…

Sunny day… Chasing the clouds away

Today was another sunny day! We had to take advantage of it as Mr. Weatherman says it’s going to rain all day tomorrow. The chickens discovered today one of our fence posts had come loose and they showed us they know how to try to get out… that’s fixed now.             I was reading a post the other day … Read More Sunny day… Chasing the clouds away

The sun came out :)

The sun was out in full force today. It was such a beautiful day I was so eager to get home and into the yard. The dogs spent the day laying in the sun and playing. The chickens were all over the yard and sunning themselves.     Hubby spent time mowing the grass and weed eating. I spent time in the garden, cleaning … Read More The sun came out 🙂

Was the weather man right?

One of my favorite flowers is the Gerber daisy. I love the colors, the design, and how they grow. Now I enjoy daisy’s in general, but this has to be my favorite variety. It’s almost like a sunshine (which I also enjoy). Which brings me to today… my motto worked the sun came out and was out all day. Over the weekend the weather … Read More Was the weather man right?

Whats a girl to do?

The weather man says this rain is supposed to break tomorrow… thank goodness… it is WET here. The chickens have been kept in their run until this afternoon when it went from torrential down pour to light sprinkles. They are happy to be out.             Chase has a vet appointment today to get him a booster on his rabies since he … Read More Whats a girl to do?

Festival Day… if it doesn’t rain

Today the sun is trying hard to stay out from behind the clouds… The chickens are enjoying some grub in and out of the coop while they take turns laying. They use to all lay in on of the first boxes we built, but now only one or two lay there, and the others lay in the new back box we built in their new … Read More Festival Day… if it doesn’t rain
