Hello! I’m Back!

Hello all! Yeah I know I haven’t been a good blogger lately (OK, like for the last 8 months!) I have a goal to at least be committed to write a twice monthly blog about whatever is happening in my life. So here we start anew! (Again!!)

Since the last blog post, I have lost my last 2 original hens. Well, not lost, but they went onto the big chicken coop in the sky. I didn’t send them into the UCONN lab because I assumed they died from the same thing as my beloved Henny Penny. In May, I purchased 4 chickens from our local Agway. Turned out one was a rooster, so back to Agway it went. I now have 3 new hens: Peanut the top Red Sex Link hen, Taffy – hefty a Buff Orpington and Belle – a gorgeous Speckled Sussex. Peanut and Taffy are laying, not every day, but frequently. Belle, well she’s a freeloader. No eggs from her yet and she is skittish around me whereas the other two peck at my jacket and try to fly onto my back when I’m cleaning their coop. I’m sure she will come around, I try to gently catch her and pet her so she will get used to me. Lets hope these girls are with us for a while!!

Well, my New Years 2015 goal is to give a twice monthly update to life in our house: recipes, sewing, a really good Korean drama (they all are good!) chickens or family update. Oh and I love to homebrew. It’s my new passion which I think I’m pretty good at. I promise I will update my homebrew adventures coming up.
