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!

MANY CHICKENS GONE

We've put a lot of extra chickens for sale. As of last night, when another 10 left here, we have only two bantams left to be sold. And they don't eat a lot so if they stick around, that's ok.

Hubby is bringing home a freezer from his dad's place this weekend, so as soon as we get it cleaned up, plugged in and working, we'll take about 20 black australorp chickens to be processed for "freezer camp". Then, we'll have a manageable number of chickens for winter care. Including when (or if) I'm laid up with knee problems.

We made enough selling our chicks to pay for several bags of feed during the winter. That helps knowing we'll be able to care for them appropriately. Keep them happy and healthy.

Peace of mind.
