Susan reminded me…
Pony is going to be 10 on Saturday. I’ve promised her her very own latte…..:-)))))
I love that this is in the Dining and Wine section of the New York Times! Thanks Susan for sharing.

Chickens remind me of my grandmother… She had laying chickens and eatin’ chickens, but she also had Bantams. The flock would follow her around as she went about her day.
These pix are from this year.
Charlie and his hens made the eggs from which popped the tiny yellow chicks. Charlie’s hens didn’t want to sit on the eggs so we plucked them out and put them under that black hen who sat on them for 21 days and now thinks they are (as they ARE except genetically) hers….
As requested, chicken photos from Susan…
Susan, the latest issue of Organic Gardening magazine, featured chickens on the cover.
Mentioned in the article were ‘easter egg’ chickens. The eggs in your hand look like easter eggs. Pretty!
Does you coop look like this?
Susan asks for feedback... Questions maybe for the blog? Has to do with collars. A trainer came for a 90 minute session today and had several suggestions for me. She wanted me to keep the dog door closed when I am home rather than giving the dogs quite so much full control over their environment. Also she wanted me to keep collars on them all the time, and suggested rolled leather collars as being the least problematic with their long coats. I'd be interested in any feedback. Susan I'm curious myself. My house dogs wear collars, complete with i.d. tags. The kennel dogs don't wear collars. I was taught that was bad animal husbandry, as the collars might catch on fencing. All my dogs are micro- chipped. Thoughts from the rest of you??
