WINTER MIX-BOOKS I AM READING-MAMA AND THE KIDS

GREETINGS

We had a winter mix overnight.  Ice was clinging to the trees earlier in the morning.  It’s all cleared out now but still foggy.

 The temps have risen and all is well.  Willie has been under the weather and is going to the vets this afternoon.

BOOKS I AM READING-STILL LIFE WITH CHICKENS

I got this book on a trip to Florida at a Library book sale.   I read it then and am reading it again.  I like reading some books for a second or even a third time.  I seem to always get  more out of the book than when I read it the first time.  It’s about life changes and raising chickens.  I do love this book and highly recommend it.

MAMA AND THE CHICKS

It’s been hard to take pictures of them So now I let them out every day and its easier.  They are practicing their flying.

 They have grown so much but still want their Mama around.  I am surprised that she hasn’t gotten sick of them yet.  Peeps is a rooster , you can see by his bright red comb and Tweeter is a hen..

 They talk talk talk all day.

Some days I think I live in a magical world of funny chickens, crazy cats and renegade sheep.  Today is one of them.    I forgot to put the chain back on the gate last night and Carol K, Maude and Marley decided to help themselves to breakfast early.  While I was taking pictures of the chickens Tweeter flew back to the top of the cage and jumped in only realizing that Mama and Peeps were still walking around outside, the crying was pitiful, and Sammy was full of vim and vigor racing upstairs and downstairs, into the sink, playing with kindling and egg shells.  What a morning.  Hope you have a wonderful day.  Carole

Sounds like busy doings over there. Snow is slowly melting here, makes for easier getting around, except where there is mud!

Wood stove cranking! Rest of the week is supposed to be above freezing…we’ll see. You need one of those bird bath heaters for your chicken water. Stay warm!
