Deerfield Fair Day!

Fair time is here!! The absolutely awesome Deerfield Fair was held just a little over a week ago (click here if you want to see their Facebook page). Fair food, lots of farm animals, the Poultry Fancier’s barn… it just doesn’t get any better. For me and Mr. Henhouse, it is the highlight of the year and we make sure to spend one of our precious weekend days there. And after visiting the chicken barn, my favorite new chicken is the raptor-looking Shamo.

Since I want to share the joy, enjoy some pictures below BabsHenHouse and make sure you visit the ag fairs in your area. I could post 100 photos and it just wouldn’t be the same as being there.

The holiday season is coming! Click here to visit www.EggCartons.com and get the best gifts for your modern day dinos and the people who love them.

Got Pests?

I know it’s been awhile, but check out my new article on Community Chickens! It details my trials and tribulations of getting rid of a horrible field mice infestation in the coop.

And for your viewing pleasure, below is a picture of the chicken coop when it was new and fresh:

Winter Adventures with Guineas!

Click here to read the post. Short version — my guinea triplets are now guinea twins.

I also wanted to announce I am doing some writing for Community Chickens and am unable to manage two blogs. So, backyard flock stuff will be there and I’ll post links here. And I hope to have time to get back to some of the other types of posts I was putting up. Forgive me for the long hiatus — it has been hectic. And I’ve been doing lots of snow shoveling. LOTS of shoveling.

UPDATE 2/27/15: I corrected the link to the blog post. Again, my apologies!
