Chicken coop, dogs, and life…

Today was the first nice day I had to be outside and work. The chicken house got a cleaning and I finished the new boxes for “the girls” (my Dad was helpful in this process as he had a lot of good ideas). “The Girls” ran around like crazy enjoying the bugs and other goodies that they could get now that the rain had … Read More Chicken coop, dogs, and life…

Chickens and the rain…

I was cleaning our house today when I saw a funny sight… The chickens running in the yard in the rain…but not just running they seemed to be trying to dodge the raindrops, but then would stop and look up like they had been defeated. They would then give up and act as if it wasn’t raining at all pecking the ground. For some of them this … Read More Chickens and the rain…

Dogs and chickens…

I am not really sure what our dogs first thought when the chickens were relocated to their yard home and were running around in the same space our pups spend time. Chase didn’t know if he should chase them, play with them, or run from them when they tried to peck him. Baxter on the other hand could care less he just wanted to … Read More Dogs and chickens…

A new coop…

I have been so busy since coming back from vacation. Today we spent most of the day building a new nesting place for our chickens (I’ll try to get a picture when we are done). Their old one is getting too small and since the new birds have started laying they need more room. We are extending their old coop to give them more … Read More A new coop…

There is no place like Home…

I am sure when we all hear these words we think of The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy, and the yellow brick road. Today I thought of how true these words are for me coming home from our recent trip to Nebraska. I missed our dogs, chickens, my bed, and just being in my own space. I think the best part of being in your own … Read More There is no place like Home…

Tuesday…

It was another long day. I had a training at work that started before I normally go in on a Tuesday. Then I worked my normal hours after that, for an 10 hour day total. It was nice to get off and come home to my husband and dad at the table waiting on the chinese food I was bringing, so they wouldn’t have to wait for … Read More Tuesday…

Monday…

What a day… I am ready for bed. Work was long. When I got home and after I put on the pot roast (see recipes section), my husband and I took the dogs on a long walk. For the first day in a long time it was nice weather, sunny, and NO WIND. The chickens who had been let out in the back yard, were … Read More Monday…
