We have new hens! The black one is a Black Copper Maran and lays dark brown eggs. I've already named her "Hershey". The Gold one in back is a Buff Orpington which lays a pinkish brown egg. The one in front is a Blue Laced Red Wyandotte which also lays a brown egg. They range from 2 and a half months to 5ish months old. They begin to lay at around 6 months. Aren't they cute? We stopped at a farm stand on the way home and got them a couple of ears of corn as a welcome home treat. So far they are still recovering from the excitement of the day and are resting.
Their feathers should grow out prettier, they look kind of rough right now.Getting to know their new home.
Who is the human with the camera?
On the way to meet the chicken seller in Sandy we passed a farm stand so on the way back we stopped and bought the corn, a cantaloupe, 3 zucchinis and these hallocks of fresh picked raspberries from the field behind the stand and some plump juicy Bing cherries. YUM!
YUMMY.. and so pretty!
A little bouquet of our own roses.
We got some rain today.. and boy last night we had a thunder and lightning storm.. hubby and I had the window open in the bay window behind our easy chairs and the room lit up like the 4th of July and BOOOOOOOOM CRASHHHHHH.... it sounded like a cannon went off in the room. It was the loudest crash of thunder I've heard in my long life. Quite a storm.And lo and behold, but last night I actually sold something in my Etsy store! LOL! Someone from New York bought one of my crocheted hearts. I've got it ready to send today. Do you like my new nail polish? I love the color.. I did it myself.
We got some birthday presents for our grandson Gabriel while we were out and we're heading to their house to celebrate. He's turning 8 years old! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
