A Bouquet of Newly Sharpened Pencils

First off, how do you like the new Chicken Scoop design?  I made the background myself!!  On to my day…

For a work day, yesterday was just jam packed!  I started my day off right…

I am a member of the rewards program at both Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks.  I can’t tell you how many free drinks I’ve gotten at Starbucks.  These are my first ones

Mama Hens

I mentioned the other day that we had some broody hens in our hen house who were trying to hatch eggs.  This means that they sit on the eggs all day only breaking to get up for food and water.  Every time we’ve gone in, they’ve been in the laying boxes.

I find it kind of funny that you can’t see any eggs under the

Weekend & 5K Report!

Will I ever get a completely free weekend?  No, I don’t think so either.  Ah well, at least it makes for interesting blogs.  I wish I had more time yesterday to blog so I could have split these up.  Anyway!

Prison Break! (Chicken Pictures)

Remember the little guys we hatched back in May?  We’ve had them outside with the big chickens but separated so they can “get to know” each other.  Well, Rob was out there filling up the watering cans and saw a mini chicken run by!  Apparently about 6 of them had dug their way out of their small pen and invaded the full pen.  See the

Vibram Review & My New Garden

This weekend was so much fun! Rob and I didn’t get to see each other really all week due to me working nights. Only 2 more weeks of that! So we were excited to see each other all weekend. Saturday, we headed out for breakfast and tried a new place. It was SO CUTE! And very country style. Loved it.

Then we headed

Happy Chicks

Video of the new babies.  The lighting is red because of the heat lamp and the camera’s light scares them.

Notice that I have 4 Turkins (chickens without feathers on their necks) when they are drinking out of the water.  They look like they have little toupees!

And watch how they learn to peck from my finger tapping.  At first, they peck my rings

This is what we woke up to this morning! My makeshift spotlight for trying to video the one that is getting close. Hehe! Spooky wants to know whats going on out in the hallway (we keep her blocked in two rooms with
