My Sister In laws Graduation!


Yesterday was my sister in law's college graduation party at my house.  We had a great time with our new gril and everyone had a great time, even my chickens.  The girls were so excited to meet their new friends. Here are some pictures of them, taken by my good friend Beth.

Here is a picture of the graduate with my husband Randy.

My hens have a little pen now.

Last week my husband and my dad made my little darlings a pen.  This pen is just for during the day.  Their real coop will be finished the end of May.  Oh I can not wait for them to be outside.  Take a look!

My first blog post!

This is my first blog post. At the end of April, I bought 6 baby chicks from a local feed store in Walden, NY. 4 Rode Island Reds, and 2 Blue Andalusians. When growing up, my dad and I always had chickens. Raising chickens together has created such a strong bond with my dad, and it has made me who I am today. I care and respect for all animals, and I am a responsible member of society. I believe that raising any animal at such a young age is good for a child.
Right now my hens are still in my home, but my husband and father made them a little pen to go in during the day. They have been here for almost a month now and they are driving me crazy. There coop is in the process of being built and it will be completed by the end of this month.
