On Thursdays I go grocery shopping. It is not a chore I like to do but the fun thing I do now that makes me so happy and excited about shopping is I buy my chickens great big bags of greens. In the bags it has spinach, turnip, collards, mustard greens. Sometimes I think about just taking a bag in the house and eating all by myself. They get such a kick out of it that I can't wait to take it out to them and I love watching them eat it because they do enjoy it so much. It has I think really increased my egg production. Yesterday I got eggs from every hen.
I was trying to get a shot of all of my hens. I have two Cuckoo Marans, Two Welsummers and some New Jersey Giants. I also have a couple of Plymouth Rocks. There are two Silkie roosters and three silkie hens and two Mlle Fleur hens. Oh and one Silver Wyandotte. Then the oldest hen I have is a cross breed Araucona because she lays green eggs. The oldest hen is 11 and one batch is six years old and the next 4 years old and then the roosters will be a year old along with two of the silkie hens.
I was thinking today I might like to buy an incubator and hatch my own chicks. I was thinking of ordering some fertilized eggs and doing it that way. Of course I am ready to have chicks and not a single broody hen.
Who knows, I just sit and think about chicks and hens and how nice it is to have them.
I finished school today so our spring break starts today!!!! I am so glad to have a whole week to do what ever I want. That is the plan. I made menus so all I had to do was remember to put it in the crock pot and I will be good to go. It feels so nice to think about a week break. I got some new wool and it is just lovely waiting to be turned into chicken rugs. There is so many possibilities.
Thanks for stopping by and being such an encouragement to me. Bless you all.
