At the Window Again

 There's nothing better than a warm breakfast on a cold rainy day...

Except maybe a daily visit from your favorite bantam hen.

Giving Thanks

We gathered for our first Thanksgiving on the new Homestead yesterday.  Family and good food all eaten on our new table was a success!  Wishing you a great rest of your weekend.

A Chicken in the Window

Nothing like having a drink and finding a chicken outside the window.

Our welsummer bantam - known around these parts as Flying Unicorn - loves to visit the bird feeder (and to keep an eye on those humans eating their breakfast).

Digging Holes

Today we dug holes for the chicken run fence posts. Despite the cold it was a group activity.  There was a bit of digging and plenty of curious onlookers.

Luckily when you can't find a tape measure, you can use the kids.  The littlest is exactly 3 feet - I call that a moveable yard stick.

It was a cold one out there and raw with the wind, but there is something about the sun setting and a full moon rising that makes evening chores much more enjoyable.
