I mentioned a couple of posts ago that our garden isn't so productive this year. But there are no complaints about how productive our chickies are! They are keeping us well supplied in eggs. We have twenty layers, as well as a few older birds that spend most of their time ridding the yard of ticks and other bugs.
I know. . .a true farmer would have 'harvested' those old girls and had some yummy chicken and dumplings. But by the time they are that old, we are 'old' friends and we are content to let them live out their days here on the place.
Our girls supply us with enough eggs for ourselves, as well as family and a few friends. I love those sweet chickens and look forward to seeing them throughout the day, as they make their way around the place. They are one of the reasons I love living in the country. Their sweet voices singing whenever they lay an egg, as well as all the 'talking' they do when they find a juicy worm or extra special bug. Do you have chickens?
Happy Chickie Thursday to all of you!
