Warm and Comforting

What says warm and comforting better than a cozy fire and a big, fat casserole? We had a couple of nights to get down into the 20s here, so in preparation for that, we had to get some firewood delivered. We have started cutting our own firewood, but it’s still too green to use for…

Game Changer

    So I finally decided to jump on the Instant Pot bandwagon and man what an amazing appliance! I can’t believe it has taken me so long to get one. We ended up ordering the 8 quart size since my boys have some pretty serious appetites and they are only getting bigger. If you…

Frittata

As promised, a recipe to share with you. We obviously have an abundance of eggs around here, so you just know I would have an egg recipe to share, right? Start by heating some olive oil in the skillet, 1-2 tablespoons. When the oil is hot, add one diced onion, 2 teaspoons minced garlic, and…

The Chicken Farmer

Eggs and More Eggs!

Neither the black Australorp hen (Strider) and one Bantam (Benipe) have started showing signs of being ready to lay yet. One Bantam, Hope, laid her first egg today. Check out these eggs we’ve…

Eggcitement!

Hooray! We have at least two chickens laying eggs! We found our first egg yesterday afternoon. What an eggciting day for us! This rainy morning we found a second egg. It was actually still warm, so we must have just missed the girl. The two larger eggs are the ceramic eggs we placed in there…

Coop Diaries

Day 68 of our captivity. The tall two-legged noisy ones caused quite a raucous in our coop today. First, they attempted to shoo us all into the roost. We outsmarted them by running underneath the roost just out of their reach. Sadly, they possess something called bamboo sticks that are long enough to reach us…
