Chickens In My Road~ Need Chick Advice

My Girls~
I received the most wonderful Easter basket from My Secret Pal at church Wednesday night. Inside were these adorable kitchen towels, the cutest To DO pad, sticky notes, chocolates in a cute Easter dish, and none other than a New Amish Cook Book. She knows the key to my heart. Secret Pal ~I have a feeling you are reading to know me so well~you have blessed me beyond measure~ you have just spoiled me so~THANK YOU!

In the bowel are today's farm fresh eggs that my girls blessed me with today~pretty as a picture! Who needs to color eggs when you have these beauties?
These are my farm fresh eggs I blew out so my Kindergartens could paint them with watercolors. We had such great fun learning all about chicks last week!

Spring is officially here~I am so excited! I am looking forward to bright long days, warm sunshine and getting my hands into some dirt. Frankly~ I am looking forward to getting outside and working in my garden. After being cooped up all winter~I am so excited to just get outdoors! Woo Hoo~

My chickens are looking a little worn and weary from this long hard winter. They have been getting out most of the day to free range. I have been giving them good chicken feed and oyster shells~along with many treats. For my chicken farmer friends~do you have any idea how to beautify them a bit? I think some have entered a moult time again. I was getting 12 eggs a day and now we are down to 6-8 eggs a day. If you have any ideas ~I would love to hear them.

They seem to love digging in my flower beds~so I was thinking maybe you~ my chicken farmer friends ~could clue me in to any flowers they don't like to eat! I noticed they leave certain flowers alone. Any ideas? I must say a city girl who loves my flowers might have lost her mind.

BUT~I am so excited to see them running around once again. They are always in search of the next treasure. Each one has a different personality. My Sami has became the most personable~imagine that. Her stay in the house completely transformed her into a very social character. For a chicken who has bathed in a whirl pool tub had to learn some social graces. She has become my favorite. With all the special treatment she received she is very capable and is thriving among her siblings~maybe even a bit to much!

If you would pay Farming On Faith a visit today you would see chickens in the road for sure. They seem to know that Momma Hen loves them and that they truly do rule the roost~all 10 acres!

Isaiah 41:10

10Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
