The Girls

I can't call them chicks anymore, the girls are almost four months old and huge. This picture was taken in October and they have grown quite a bit since. Unfortunately egg production slows down in the winter so I probably won't see any eggs till the spring but in the meantime they are still very entertaining and really easy to take care of. They each have their own personality and are very sweet. I am still terrified of birds especially the hawk the visits my yard but I love my chickens. They even put up with the dogs.

Winter Blues...

I was very excited to get some garden catalogs in the mail over this past week. I sat down and read them and dogged eared all of the pages of plants I might order. By the time I was done I was completely depressed, I want to go outside and plant something!!!! I'm happy that Christmas is almost here and if it wasn't for all the baking, decorating, and crafting, I would probably lose my mind but it's just not the same. The only reason I have to get into the yard is to visit and feed the chickens (they are huge and I'll post some new pics soon). I guess Nichole's Garden is moving inside for the season!
