It's that time of year again.
Time for lots of little fluff balls to
be running around the farm.
These pictures were taken last year
when we ordered 63 chicks from
Most were Buff Orpingtons but we also
had 9 Black Australorp
and one freebie thrown in
by the hatchery.
HE turned out to be a silver Leghorn.
It's been a big day and everyone is a little sleepy
This year we are going to do things differently.
We have two Buff's who are 'broody'
and we are going to let them 'set'
on some eggs.
We tried this once before but it was chilly out
and Mamma hen didn't take very good
care of them so unfortunately
they didn't make it.
So when hubby get's a few minutes
from working on the bathroom renovation
we'll put these two ladies into their own
pen in the coop and see what happens.
Do you mind turning the light out!
Who'd have thought a totally black chicken
could come from this little fluff ball above.
Looking forward to seeing
cute little fluff balls under
their Mamma's wings.
We're in the middle of a bathroom
renovation. What a mess!
This is my office/craft room!
What we thought would be a fairly
quick renovation is taking a lot longer
than first thought.
If you've ever lived in an old house before
and tackled a renovation you know all about
walls that are not straight and hidden surprises.
Well...our project is no exception.
Here's a little peek at where we are now.
The bathroom sink/vanity is out...
and I'm getting a little tired of washing
and brushing my teeth in the kitchen sink!
Oh well...it will all be worth it in the end.
I hope you have a WONDERFUL week
