chicken tour, happy easter, bb

we have had chickens at our country n now for 10 years
we still learn things when we do a chicken tour or see
someone elses chicken coop

some of the coops were in the keep austin weird section
of austin
one guy took an old tv and removed the tube and use the tv
as a nesting box for his chicken so you can watch the chickens
set on the eggs

most of the coops were discreetly tucked into their back yards
you would never know they had chickens
most ate the eggs or sold them or gave them away
they use the chicken waste as compost and later fertilizer
in their garden

one man said he had no roosters only hens
one of his chickens is called one eye as
a rooster pecked one eye out on the chicken
the rooster now rests in his freezer
dont have to have a rooster to raise eggs

for a novice the tour gives you ideas and allows you to
see how simple it is to raise chickens

highly recommend it

happy easter everyone
hope your kids have a great easter egg hunt today

one of my facebook friends and former patient raises fresh eggs
she and kids decorated some farm fresh eggs for the easter egg
bet theyll break them over each others head and eat the nutritious
just like the old days huh
no candy or confetti there

our kids are gone now but we still have an egg hunt
but it happens every day as we wonder where those chickens
lad those eggs
behind the water dish, the old broken pot, the tree stump, in the
barn where the old feeding bin is, and who knows where
sometimes we find a big pile of them
our chickens are true free range chickens
putting the eggs in those nice laying bins we got at canton is just
too much to ask sometimes

we probably would be good at an egg hunt huh

dang mavs gonna be a long road now for yall
bulls lost pacers win
spurs lost the bears bit them good
thunder marched on
more games today
celtics need to win to rest those old bones
lakers just need to get it done so they can rest
hawks magic could change up everyones original predictions
including mine
fab three of heat marches on

  1. We have the most wonderfully ghetto chicken coop: we fenced in the bottom of the girls' playscape and put a door on the side. It even has twinkling Christmas lights surrounding it to deter the neighborhood possum!
