My new additions to the flock. Bought them at the 4-H sale in September. Started laying the day I got them and have not let up since. I got Blu the rooster from a friend. The girls love him to death. One of them stays by his side constantly. The new ones are Buff Orpingtons.

WHAT THE........

You know if we can put men on the moon, why can't we put decent internet in every county?
Getting good internet service is nearly impossible if you live outside the city limits, in the "country".
There are plenty of companies out there that will lie to you and assure you that you will get great reception and no down time.   LIARS!!!

It is hard to keep a blog, Facebook account or anything else up to date. I really don't know why I keep trying. It just keeps me angry.

I will try and post here more often. I will just have to go to town and use the Library internet access.
Sorry to rant but I have had it up to my......

More intelligent information to come.

I can hardly wait to get the vegetables in the ground. I have way too many but my ambitions  were bigger than the space I had when planting the seeds. I guess friends and family will have to take some of them.
I am growing most of my vegetable from Heirloom and Organic seed.

I am trying to get the GMO crap out of our food. If you don't know what GMOs are you should really research it. It is genetically modified organisms. They are in the seed that have had DNA from other plants, animals and bacteria inserted in to them, to make them withstand the chemical glysophate used in Roundup. This kills the weeds, good bugs, honey bees, butterflies, birds and anything else that comes in contact with it. The weeds are becoming resistant to roundup and so they have to spray the crops several times. This goes into the ground and kills everything good in the soil and it runs off into our streams, rivers and eventually the ocean, killing everything in its path.

Organic farmers do not use ANY pesticide or herbicide when growing their crops. Money is NOT their bottom line. It is about growing healthy food for people and keeping us strong and healthy. If you have space for even a pot, grow something edible in it. most everything can be grown in pots or small spaces. It's your life, why not make it a long and healthy one?

These babies say Spring is here.

These agree.
They eat the sunflower seeds under the bird feeder.

I just love the Cardinal.

Unwelcome guests

Showed up and ate all the sunflower seeds meant for the smaller birds.

Talk about turkeys....these 4 boys are very large and very hungry.

The girls second venture outside the run. They are loving the worms and grass.

The other three girls.

This is Bossy. She is clogging like her "momma".

Bossy again with a "basic step."

My girls. I now have laying hens on the farm. Four to be exact. They give me 3-4 eggs every day. They have not stopped all winter. This is their first day out of the run. They were loving the worms and green grasses. They talked and kicked dirt and scratched all over the place. It was fun to watch them.
We are as organic as we can get. Organic feed, organic scratch, organic kale, organic sunflower seeds, organic oats, and organic raisins. I am loving these funny little birds.
