Well, here we are again, months after my last post! I really am the worst at keeping a blog, lol. In all fairness though, keeping up with four kids, two of them babies; a business, and a household leaves little time for sharing. The littlest one is now crawling around and just growing way too fast!
We've been working hard at building a new coop, we went with a very cute design by Fresh Eggs Daily: New England Cape Coop Plans. It looks very cute, the older girls are happily clucking around in it. We've got some new babies as you can see; our new Black Orp chicks in the picture above! They are happily chirping away in their brooder as I type this! We almost lost one at a week old, I had to feed it by hand for two days and it was completely listless. I noticed its crop wasn't changing and going down in fullness so we force fed it some grit just in case it wasn't taking in any on its own. The next day it was better and being the loud mouth of the group again. I don't know if it was the vitamin water for two days or the grit, but it worked! I am so thankful!!
It is also time for fall veggie planting! This weekend will be full of transplanting the broccoli, kale, mustard, cabbages and spinach. We will also be getting the carrots, garlic, beets, and lettuce direct sowed!
To celebrate our new chicks I thought I should host a give away! The newest stamp in my store is this chicken stamp! I will be using rafflecopter to host it, here's how you can get four entries:
