First Egg!

We have our first egg!

The question is, who laid it?
3 of my chickens are 5 months this week and
2 are 4 1/2 months.
 I didn't see any nesting going on so I have no clue.
I finally have a hen!
Hubby had it timed just right…
he finished the nesting boxes last weekend!
Sweet little thing!

Have an egg~citing day!

Spouting Wheatgrass For The Chickens!

I am so excited that I spouted some wheatgrass for my chickens!
I know this will be great especially for winter.

I searched Pinterest and found several ways.
 I took pictures through the 8~9 day progress.
From soaking overnight to harvest.
The wheat starts to spout very fast!

Look at all those little roots!
~
I tasted the wheatgrass and it is very refreshing!
I will be making a batch for us to juice with.
The chickens LOVE it!
This is one of their favorite treats …
wheatgrass, corn, dried mealworms & oats!
I have made several batches since I took these first pictures.


Have a Great Day
Thanks Bunches for Visiting!

Pictures of My Booth at Market!


 This last Saturday I did a marketplace show in my hometown.

It was held at ROOSTER CREEK in Murrieta, CA.,
 under some beautiful big trees
and grass under our feet!
Heaven for a vendor.
Here are a few pictures.
Handmade magnets.
I have several on my "ice~box in my vintage trailer! 
My signature clipboards & journals!
My LAUNDRY SOAP was a big hit!
And so were the necklaces.
Got one sold right off my neck!
I will be making more to put in my Etsy shop!
Cutie pie notepads.
I have been selling gift tags for years and
they never let me down!
I have a printer that prints crystal clear. 
I actually have 3 of the same printer in case one breaks down!
Pretty lace curtains from our last home.
Customers wanted to buy them!
Oh, and see that sweet vintage quilt on my ironing board?

I won that at ROOSTER CREEK last month for being a customer! 
They have a drawing each month.

I LOVE it Vivian and Cricket! Thanks Bunches!
Lots of pincushions and crocheted dishcloths.

The Little Chicken Run!

The little chicken run is done!
Hubby did a great job on it.
They really do run in it too!
They start from the inside of the coop 
and come flying~running out.
A hoot to watch!

I could sit all day watching them and 
yes, that is a chicken swing!

We used a cleaned construction sand 
for both the run & coop.
We bought it at a local sand and rock business
and had it delivered.

Sooo easy to clean up the poop and 
keeps their feet clean and nails trimmed.  
We made this so predator proof
a lizard can't even get in the run or inside
 the fenced part of the coop!
Sealed tight like a jar.
All is safe day and night for them.

Myrtle, Daisy, Emily, Nellie & Kate 
are now 4 months old.
We have a little while yet for egg laying.

We will patiently wait for fresh eggs!
