I am so envious of many of our forum members as they have chook houses with chickens. I have wanted chickens for the longest of time and they are next on my "to do list" along with a productive vegetable garden. Our forum member ~Mands! recently had the joy of baby chickies and posted of her experience in our forum. Quite a few of her eggs hatched although there was one that exploded under the heat lamp, which resulted in a not so charming air freshener I am told ;]
There has also been talk of double yolkers - such fun for children to discover the joy of a double yolker. There is nothing quite like fresh free range eggs from your own backyard for your baking hey! Have attached some piccies of ~Mands! beautiful mother hen and her cute babes. To read more about our forum members and their chickens just log into our websites friendly forum and say hi
*Todays tip: To determine whether an egg is fresh or not, immerse it in a pan of cool, salted water. If it sinks, it is fresh. If it rises to the surface, throw it away.
First step, take a deep breath
You don’t need a reason why
You can, you can take, take time
You can, you can walk, run, dive
Close call, you think you might fall
But all you gotta do is try
Even angels, even angels learn… to fly~!
I would fly you to the moon and back if you'll be . . . if you'll be my baby ~Savage Garden~
If I was a fairy I would be named Hex Icefly
She is a bone chilling bringer of justice for the vulnerable.
She lives in places hexed and tainted by black magic.
She is only seen at midday under a quiet, cloudless sky.
She wears black feathers and rose petals. She has icy blue butterfly wings.
