FEEDING THE BIRDS                                                           

We are expecting a little snow today so I made sure the bird feeders are full. There are many sparrows which live and nest of the farm, Juncos’ , Chickadee’s, Blue Jay’s and a pair of Cardinals.  Sometimes during the winter I will see Finches and Grosbeak’s.   These birds earn their winter keep.  I rarely have mosquitos in the summer.

About 6 or 7 years ago I planted a Christmas type tree and some Holly near the feeders.  Its has been a successful planting as it gives the birds protection from the few cats which roam the neighborhood , shelter from storms and a safe place to eat their seeds.






As you can see in the picture Amelia’s feathers have really come out.  I finally found the right group of chickens for her.   She is happier now .  You can still see the purple of the Blue-Kote which I kept spraying on to protect  her.

The rest of the hens have now returned to laying.  Yesterday I got  5 eggs.  



Thank you so much for reading my blog.  I hope you have a wonderful day.                Carole
