Breaking News: Chicks!!

Breaking News at the Chicken Scoop!  One of the eggs that the broody hens have been sitting on has hatched!

  Bottom Right – doesn’t look like Mommy Hen because it might not actually be hers!  Communal eggs here, lol

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

Exercise While Jogging

FYI, blogging in the evenings has been difficult lately.  Too many distractions…

I really really wish I could break these posts up into smaller ones!  Then again, that would lead to several posts per day but at least they would be shorter.  Hm.  I need a new tactic somehow! Yesterday, I made the most wonderful thing.  I have made it before but fell out of the

Mama Hens

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

Farm, Chickens, Kittens & More!

I was really trying to think of a good title. Haha. Anyway! This weekend has been going well so far! Very relaxing! I really need to clean and do laundry at some point though. Perhaps tomorrow 🙂

Last night, Rob and I just wanted to hang out together so we headed over to Bonefish Grill (chain restaurant) for a glass of wine and appetizers.
