Storm Fronts and Chickens

Yesterday I went out to gather eggs before the storm hit.  I got this picture of the front moving in.  We ended up getting 1" yesterday afternoon and 2" last night (along with some hail).  Is this rain ever going to end?  The ground is completely saturated at this point.  Please sun, come out and stay for awhile!

  I also took a few pictures of our meat birds.  We only have about a week to go before they go to get processed.  We have a few in particular that are huge, so it will be interesting to see how they all dress out.  We are disappointed that we have lost almost half of these birds after all the work we have put into them, but we hope to raise another batch soon. 


  1. Sorry to hear about the demise of your chickens. Hope things work out better for you on your next trip. Now what will you do with 37 chickens? Please share your recipes.

  2. We've had one chicken so far, just roasted it in the oven. I'll share some recipes when I come across some good ones! I'm thinking fried chicken should be on our menu soon!
