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!

Clucking in the Coop

The flock has been so enjoying their fall free-ranging (after being cooped up all summer) and they’ve fallen a bit behind in their musings. They’ve asked me to extend their apologies. And I have to apologize for waiting until the Thanksgiving break to put their thoughts to digital paper. It’s been a bit hectic.
