My current home doesn't have a verandah but I'd like it to! A long porch surrounding the entire house. With a porch swing, potted blueberry plants, and a long strong dog laying at my feet. The sweet smell of lrosemary and freshly-turned soil wafting across my yard. The chickens clucking contentedly as they scratch for goodies in the fertile dirt. Knowing we have a full root cellar, trees in the orchard about to drop their bounty, and soup made all from hand-picked harvests bubbling in the crockpot. Heaven.

Please move with me over to my current blog, www.rosemary-ridge.blogspot.com ... thank you!

Silkie Chicken Wanted, and video of me singing

For those of you near where I live (near Denver) ... we're looking for a broody hen to sit on and hatch our quail and chicken eggs.

Silkie chickens are bantams (small chickens), who don't lay many eggs themselves. That's ok with us. But .. since they are known for being great mothers and hatchers, that's what we're looking for. Need a silkie hen, broodiness preferred, color doesn't matter.

Please contact me... vikkibooks aat yahoo dott com ... the sooner the better.

Thanks!

The below is a video I shot last week of me singing to my 3-week-old easter egger chick ... hoped to encourage her to grow! Yes, I know I forgot some of the words, and my pitch is off but still.... it's the intent, right?
