Chicks and kittens

 Mama chicken Sweetie and her 3 chicks are now enjoying the outside in their own little coop and pen until they can be let out with the big girls in a few weeks. They are getting so big at 2 weeks and 2 days old. And their mama don't want any one or any thing near them, I am hoping they all turn out to be hens.    

 Over the past weekend 2 kittens came inside to learn to be inside house cats. We ended up keeping the black kitten and not the 1 we first picked out. Every time we went out to the shed to water & feed mama kitty & the kittens the black one was first to greet us and follow us around. I think he picked us. The little gray girl is going to live with a friend in a few weeks, until then she will be hanging out with her brother and us. It has been interesting with kittens in the house, they are into everything and learn they are not aloud to climb up our legs. Little claws are sharp. Ouch !!!

A little of & a little of that.

The kittens are getting bigger and are playing more now that their eyes are open. I am hoping to find a home for the mama and last 2 kittens. We are keeping a male kitten and a friend is taking 1.
This is our little boy now at almost 4 weeks.

Mama watching over them as they play and check things out.

This little girl is the 1 a friend is taking.

These 2 still are looking for a home.

For Mother's day I got a Touch Kindle reader and I am loving it.  Thank you my sweetie's T., Pippi and Mike.

And 2 very sweet friends gave me a set of lamps and a set of creamer and sugar bowl.   Thank you Danny & Karen, Mrs Carolyn & Paul.

   I also got a surprise this morning my mama hen hatched out 3 chicks from the 4 eggs she had under her. She left the nest this afternoon so I am guessing the last egg is bad. I think her and I are very happy with 3 chicks. My flock now has 27 chickens. And that is more then enough for me.

 I have picked the peas and carrots from our garden and they have been dried and put up for winter stews.  And I got a few more pints of chicken stock canned and got 3 pints of jam from my strawberry bed so far and I think I may have enough in the freezer now to make more jam.



We have been really busy the past month here working on the garden and keeping our yard mowed. The teenage hens got moved in with the big girls now and I am hoping they will soon start laying eggs. All these babies have been keeping me on my toes. I am loving every minute of it. I think when my head hits the pillow at night I'm a sleep before I even close my eyes.  Thank you God I love my life and your many Blessing each day.


 I hope you all are having a great spring and a wonderful summer full of love laughter and many blessings.
