Mystery Seed

My son likes to take the seeds he finds in his fruit and plant them in the potted plants that are around the house...I always thought it was funny until I saw this....

Sometimes introductions are a little tense

Conway met the girls today, the girls were scared and as far as Conway is concerned, she just wanted to play with them. She would sit and watch, but when the hens started running so did Conway. I'm pretty sure my puppy was just being a puppy and only wanted to play, but visitations will be supervised for now!

Meet Conway

Meet the newest addition to our family....Conway! She is a 10 week old golden doodle (half golden retriever half poodle) and is supposed to be hypoallergenic, which is great because I am allergic to dogs. We just picked her up today. Hope she plays nice with the chickens!

It may not feel like winter

It may not feel like winter, but it still looks like obvious signs of spring yet

A good day for some yard work

It was another beautiful February just sounds strange! The weather was in the 40's and sunny so I was able to do a few chores!

I let the girls roam the garden in winter, but they do create a bit of a mess while scratching around for bugs. The back and left edge of the garden is mulched and the girls managed to throw a lot of the mulch out onto the stone so I spent some time cleaning it up.

I also did some grading work around the coop. I still need to bring in some more soil, the plan is to create beds around the front of the coop, plant some shrubs and flowers, the rest will be grass.

The girls just can't resist freshly turned over dirt.

Remembering an old friend

Remembering an old friend...dogs truly are one of man's and woman's best friends. This was our dog Houston, she was a large part of our lives for over 11 years. Sadly, she passed away a little over a year ago. She is still missed and we think about her often....

Just a little weather

What I originally thought was going to be 6-12 inches of snow is turning out to be more like 1/2 an inch or so, but the girls and my neighbors horse don't seem to mind the mild weather

A sunny day

It was pretty nice out today so I decided to clean out the chicken coop. While I was cleaning the girls decided to do a little sunbathing on the deck...
