Spring!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry its been so long again.  We keep getting busier and busier as every day passes.  My Honey finally got two days off this week, but he is off to Boise for three days to check some “new” equipment.  Almost a month of 12 hour days was a bit much.  But we all shall survive.

Got chicks Tuesday afternoon.  Hooray.  They were suppose to be here mid May, but the feed store got some in earlier than they thought and I got the phone call.

I had originally ordered 25 black sex links.  They only got 20 in and another lady had ordered 5, so I let her take the 5 and we filled the rest of my order with golden sex links.  I’m not sure what a sex link is, but they are suppose to be good egg layers and tolerate the cold.  The temp here got down low last night and so did the temp in the chicken house.  The little fuzzie butts were all fine, huddled up under the heat lamp in the brooder.  Last night was suppose to be the chilliest night this week.  Fingers crossed.

When WyoNella and the boys came, they brought me 6 chicks from Wyoming.  Four of them have survived.  Had them in the house under a heat lamp.  They are about 3 weeks older than the new girls and we will have to separate them shortly.

These are Rhode Island Reds.  We shall see how they do.  Sure am looking forward to fresh eggs in the fall and chicken in the freezer.

Had a real flop with the coconut cake at Easter.  The whole side fell out.  LOL  Sure looked funny, but tasted good.  Oh well.

I found a great recipe for Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies I will share next time.  A great wasy to use up icky bananas other than banana bread.  Well, off to check the temp under the brooder.
