Couldn't Be Happier

I ordered this stepping stone back in the spring from a high school friend.  I told her what I wanted and she came up with a design.  I asked if she could put some cobalt blue in it and she did.  Without realizing it she put our Sunny in the center.  Looks just like her.

I picked it up yesterday and could not be more pleased!  I love and I can't wait to get it home to find the most perfect place for it.

And the other best thing is that we plan to have lunch the next time I'm in Huntington.  Should be fun!  Thanks, Connie!

I Have Eggs Coming Out Of My Ears!

So I needed to step away from the computer for awhile so I decided to go out to weed a bit.  And look what I found under the burning bush...a pretty good size egg.  I'm thinking one of my sweet girls didn't want to make a run for the cook during a downpour and just let one drop while she was taking cover under the bush.  A girl's gotta get rid of an egg when it is time!  Needless to say, this one is in the compost bin.

I gotta 'em, who needs 'em?

There Is Always Something....

...different about my girls.

One weekend when I was away Emmy was in charge of the animals.  She found this very small egg.

Then tonight I found this perfectly normal size egg in a nest of goat feed that somehow had gotten on the ground in the most perfect shape of a nest.

It has been raining for a few days.  Guess they don't like getting their feet wet!

Someone found the compost gathering bowl.  I am almost positive everyone will know about it within the hour.

Funny thing with no pic to prove it.  I went out to fill the goat buckets with feed.  I found an egg.  Seems like a few of Pappy's girls have been living with the goats for a few days.

I Just Shake My Head

Our friends were watching over the farm while we were sunning our buns in the sand.  Usually, before we leave, we make sure that everyone is taken care of.  This means that we clean out their 'living space', refresh the water, and make sure that all food containers are full.  I made sure the girls had plenty of shavings in their coop and nesting boxes.  I guess I put a little too one laid any eggs in the correct spot...

They laid them where they are supposed to sleep.  This is the egg drop from Wednesday until Saturday evening.  And seems that only two of them are roosting in the larger chicken house.  They all want to be together in the red coop which is only designed for 6-8 birds.  I can see that happening this winter when it is cold...but now when it is so stinkin' hot?

I just love a pretty basket of eggs!

and then I find these to yahoos checking out the inside of the rabbit hutch.  Guess I better start checking her for eggs too.

After The Rain

Guess Leona got tired of standing on the wet grass so she decided to sit in the chair and wait for me.

Now that is a BIG egg.

After The First Rain

Pappy's Girls were all out fluffing themselves dry on the goat playground.

It is a little soggy out there today.  And doesn't look like the evening will be much better.

Please Say It Isn't Going To Rain

By the looks of this huddle it might be going to rain.  Micahel says in about an hour it should hit.  I'm thinking the boys are telling me sooner by their body language.

Today, Another First

Sometimes the chickens like to have sleep-overs with the goats.  I figure if you fly in to be with your friends, surely you can fly back out to roost in your one coop.  Not these two.  Nope, not them.  I kept seeing a chicken in the goat bucket.  Sometimes they get in there and feast on goat food.  I figured that was what they were doing.  Guess I was wrong.

They Sure Can Be Silly

I'm trying again to get the chickens interested in music!  Looks like they may have some competition.
