Eggs

Just look at all our little pullet eggs.  Ain’t they cute?  Notice the ameraucana one.  We were so happy to see it in the nest.  We have been busy here for the the last few days.  Thursday afternoon we went over the our pastors house to pick peaches.  I, of course, forgot my camera so no pictures of his beautiful trees.  They are all full of fruit.  Friday and today was spent working up the peaches we got.  We ended up with 15 qts canned, 3 qts frozen, and 10 1/2 gals of peach juice.  YEAH!  Such a blessing.

We have been HOT here.  Not as hot as some of you all but hot for us.  Upper 90’s for the actual temperature.  I’m not sure what it is with the humidity, feels like, at least, 110 degrees (to me).

Well, that’s about it for now.  I hope you all have a great evening and God bless.

They’re Here

We got the baby chicks yesterday afternoon.  Aren’t they cute?  We have 22 of them.  5 are Buff Orpingtons and the others are Rhode Island Reds.  They had sold out all the Buff’s but 5 when we got there.  We took the last of the Reds that they had.  The lady said they would get more in on Monday but didn’t know what breeds they would be.  The odd one is a Ameraucana.  I think they are also known as Easter Eggers as they lay colored eggs.   We are hoping this one is a hen.  The girls thought it would be fun to get something different.  Anyway, they spent the night in the kitchen next to the wood fire.  It was pretty cold here last night with rain, fog and wind so we thought they might be better off inside the house.  Today, we moved them to the coop with a heat lamp for warmth.  The house seems quiet without their chirping. 

The girls and I are off to Sam’s and Lifeway today.  I hope you all have a great day and God bless.
