Home Free

   Welcome everyone! So this week we finally built the chickens their new pen!

I am not sure if this is going to be their final pen, but it is a lot better than their first one.

We threw this little area together over the winter after... 

...their large pen collapsed. 
(You can read about that here!)

   The biggest change from last summer's pen is that we dropped the electric fence. I think I will be writing an updated review of that soon, but in short, we didn't like it.  

   We did bring back the ugly green netting. It is just so much easier to work with than chicken wire. 

   The chickens are so excited about their new pen! New bugs, new treat and even a little grass! (That last one probably won't last long, but it's good while it lasts!)

I love Sleepy in this picture!

   Well, I'll see you all right back here next week!

Another Man's Treasure

   Since I first got chickens, I started collecting chicken related stuff. I didn't do this on purpose... it just kind of happened. Now, all over my room is chicken stuff. Some of it was given to me, other pieces I bought myself.

   Today, I am going to show you some of what I have collected over the years... 

1. Tiny Chick Bowl

   I bought this adorable little bowl at a hardware store strangely enough. It was Easter and it was just too cute to resist!

2. Handmade Snow Globe

   A good friend of mine made me this chicken snow globe for me last Christmas. It was so thoughtful! 

3. Straw Hen

   I found this at a consignment shop. I have figured out that those stores are a great place to look for chicken related stuff. Everything in them is usually very unique, like this straw hen! 

4. Chicken Tape Dispenser

   I absolutely love this! It just looks so cute on my desk! I think I found it online at My Pet Chicken. I am not sure if they still sell this, but it can be found pretty easily online.

Update: As many of you have most likely noticed, I have not been posting as much as I used to. With the school year finishing up, I am kind of swamped with finals work. So, at least for a while now, I will be posting every other week. Once Summer starts and I have more time, I will probably go back to the old schedule. I really appreciate you staying with me! See you soon!
