Joys of Living with Chickens   19 comments


Our chicken house(wing)

 

Building a 90%  up-cycled chicken house is simple and fun.

 

 

       Another view of the chicken house

The Flock Grew We soon realized the five hens originally ordered turned into a 16 count!

 

We built an other wing for them to have the proper living space.

 

 

Peeps! @ day old chicks

 

Teaching the little chicks how to drink and eat was a breeze. We dipped their tiny beaks to the water and they drank with enthusiasm. Tapping my finger on top of their food was all it took for an eating session.

 

First night at home

Say is that a chick on you head? Our chickens are a bit indulged and it is fine.

The weather is indecisive this time of year luckily we have cured oak for firewood.

Great flames with oak wood

As I watch the fire taking shape, a dragon appears in the fire’s silhouette.

A sunny afternoon is the perfect time for this little lizard to catch some rays.

After only a few photographs, Mr. Lizard tires with all the attention. He retreats to his rock house.

Fire Speak: Cold at Bay   18 comments


Seems that winter and spring have argued over which is in control. Winter wins the weekend!

 

The fire dance

 

Who does not enjoy the warmth and glow that a fireplace provides?

 

Cedar fire hole

 

I favor the photos taken without my flash. I rely on the light cast from the fire itself.
