3 Acres - 2 Free Range Chickens ~~~
This blog is all about every day stuff that goes on around here. We need more chickens! A new chicken coop! Hope all this happens in 2017.
The two very old hens are in the chicken coop now because of the coyotes and foxes. Sigh!

Sometimes, Morgan thinks she is a chicken. She loves chicken feed... scratch and lay pellets... doesn't matter what I give the chickens. If the chickens are eating it then she wants some too. Morgan snuck in some chicken scratch while I was trying to take pictures. Hope she doesn't get a tummy ache.
Of course, there really are "furry" chickens...The Silkie Breed. Click on the link to go to a BackYard Chickens page about them with lots of information and photos.
Fire! Must have fire to heat the house.
After the fire got going, I opened all the dampers.
and set the kitchen timer for fifteen minutes
so I would remember
to close the dampers so I don't burn up the wood and the house.
I love building and making a fire in the wood stove. I suppose that feeling might tap into some primeval fire homage as I give thanks for the fire wood finally catching and holding the flames. I did a happy dance when the fire finally got going after several fizzles. I had a lot of trouble getting the fire to catch today because the fire box was cold since we haven't needed a fire for a few days. It is getting cold again. It shouldn't snow according to the weather forecast, but it might. Stranger things have happened.
I just found this video and these could be our chickens.
Our chickens come running just like this from the forest to be first to get on the porch when I toss cabbage or other treats out for them to enjoy. I'll have to try and make a video of them this summer or at least get some photos. It all happens so fast it is hard to capture when I have 14 chickens coming at me from all directions. Must do some planning and enlist Kristine to help.
