Rooster Round

Every evening right before the sunset the roosters and hens are aroused by the smell of jasmine in the air. They remind me of “West Side Story” they are either going to be lovers or fighters. These two want to tango…

Little Rooster That Could

I know you all know the story of the train that could, but the rooster belongs to us. Our little rooster is a bantam. That last couple of mornings he has crowed. Oh, it is so cute! Just this evening after my husband came home, he was telling me he saw the little rooster crow. Then my husband started crowing like a rooster. All the sudden the little guy stood on a rock, and took a deep breath, stretched out his neck and crowed in front of us. We laughed so hard because we could see how much he was pushing himself. Here is our rooster…

Growing Chicks

It has been a week since we purchased our chicks. I can’t believe how much they are growing. I check on them several times a day. Make sure they have fresh water, and they have fresh food. I really am not a bird person, but I really like the chickens. We will see how I fair once they try to fly around me. I want to show you how much they have grown.

Chickens Are Here

February 26th we bought 10 chickens. The next day I left for a trip to San Diego for a blogging conference. While I was gone, my family went out and purchased 10 more chickens for a total of 20 chickens. My husband confessed that he has some more on order…Baby chick

Coming Together

We have the three chick coops in place. The 26th is when our local farm stores will have some baby chicks. We have also ordered our worms for composting, the first batch baked. 😦 We also have bees that will be here soon. The bee box will be here first, and we have a little home for it. Since it needs the right combination of warmth and shade.

Chickens

Yep! This Saturday we are getting our first chicken coop. The kids are super excited about the chickens, and I am too. The chicken coop has a glass floor. What? A glass floor? So, I am learning so much about country life…Why would you want a glass food? Well, it is easier to clean out the chicken coop. The one we purchased in big enough to walk into with no problems, and I don’t even have to walk inside to get the eggs. There is a latched box that holds the eggs. Yeah! I am so glad I don’t have to go into the coop and try to take the eggs away from the chickens. I am not sure if I am frightened about them flying around trying to peck me for the eggs or what it is. Well, it will all be unfolding soon. Once we get it all set up, I will post some photos.
