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.

10 Reasons I LOVE chickens

A day for the birds…

Today is sunny and bright… the flowers survived the winds and the chickens are out in the yard looking for food. The only problem is we were under a freeze warning last night and it is COLD today… Hopefully it will warm up so the dogs will go out and play. It would be a nice day to bundle up and go for a … Read More A day for the birds…
