Warmer Days and Some Completed Projects

Posted by mrssmythe on May 19, 2019 in Chickens, Crafting, Critters, Garden, Seasons, Toys, Week in Review |

CPT A (who is usually the one to let the chickens out in the morning) happened onto an egg in the nesting box today. I took photos and was all set to write a blog about “the first egg”, when Ginger came in several hours later with another egg. Thrilling stuff! We suspect these were laid by our […]
