Yes, we're still alive and 'clucking' out back in the woods - it's been a while since my last post.  Winter was milder than we first thought it would be - not much snow to speak of - and the spring/summer weather has been something to CROW about! (Click on photos to enlarge!)

I did get several new peeps in March - - 30 of them!  At this point in time I am down to 8 pullets, 5 of which will be going to their new home July 1st.  3 will be staying here with us.  I must say this new flock is the bravest of any I have had to 'wrangle' so far.  Their enclosure is a 6ft tall chain link fence.  Every morning I would have to open the gate and chase between 1 and 3 pullets back inside their pen.  Curious, I went out at night to capture this roosting scene -

And no WONDER!  Just look at them - CAUGHT by CAMERA!  The guilty little snots!  Guess it will be time for wing clipping soon enough!  They prefer this height to the roost bar hubby installed for them.  The highest point is the safest point to roost - they are not DUMMIES, you know!
.....Well, time to hit the roads for the day - have to put vittles on the table for the girls!

Good Morning Sweetie...
Oh so happy to see you post, and what a beautiful green yard you have. It is gorgeous.

Love that chair hanging on the outside wall with the plant in the middle. Now how cute is that. your little work table with the plant as well. Everything is gorgeous Monica, just gorgeous. I love it.

I didn't know you had horses as well. Such character they have. I love all the green trees in the background, so beautiful.

Well just look at all those beauties roosting right on top of that fence. Yep, I would say it is about time to clip, or they will be wandering off or something will get them.

Oh welcome back sweetie. I have missed you immensely. Thanks for sharing this morning. Just beautiful about your place.

Many hugs and so much love, Sherry
