Surprise It’s Fall!

I blinked and it is already fall. I don’t know what it is… being so busy, this virus throwing things a little wonky, or just the fact that every year seems to go by faster and faster… but a friend of mine texted me today to say Happy First Day of Fall and I was like “whoa it is already fall”! How did that … Read More Surprise It’s Fall!

Growing and Learning

I said in my last post I would post about our chicken run we built for the baby chicks to be outside in, yet safe from predators like hawks. And it works we have had a hawk try to get them in here without success. We have also used it to separate chickens as needed like when they are minor sick or injured. Keeps them outside … Read More Growing and Learning

Late Summer Update

Our little piece of God’s earth is trying to keep up with the change in weather from bouts of rain to dry humid heat. The grass is good when we get some rain and the chickens love all the bugs… The birds are still having babies and one mom has taken over our smaller birdhouse… Inside I am trying to keep up with the … Read More Late Summer Update

Summer grass

I am so glad that the summer grass has come in and the chickens have plenty of fresh, green, healthy, grass to forage in. Happy chickens=healthy chickens=good eggs 😉

Happy Happy Chickens!

The grass is back, the tress are coming out, the flowers are blooming, and the chickens are happy. Yet its either hot and humid or were having thunder storms and tornado warnings… I am not sure what season to call this, its not spring, or summer… I think I will just call it crazy!

Back to business…

The snow is starting to melt and the girls are enjoying getting back out to forage They are enjoying being out in the parts of the yard that are free from snow And finding bugs that are coming out now that the snow is melting I am happier because I am getting more eggs They are much happier now that they can be out … Read More Back to business…

First Day of Spring… I think NOT

So “they” say yesterday was the first official day of spring. Well at our place yesterday and today looked something like this… Not that I am complaining as it was the only good snow we actually got this whole winter. Hubby and I were both home, no thanks to my county job. They were too cheap to let us off in a foot of snow … Read More First Day of Spring… I think NOT

Sad News

It’s official… we have a fox 😦 We have been pretty lucky here that predators usually stay away because the dogs are in with the chickens off and on all day and until bed time). The smell of the dogs and us usually keep them out of the fenced in area we have for the dogs and chickens. But not this fox… Sunday night we … Read More Sad News

Flowers and Fun

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
