Thoughts from my garden in the sagebrush ocean of Central Oregon

She's Doing It Again
Two years ago I was a novice. Nervous. Excited. Well-read but with no actual hands-on experience. The Six Chix Mix took me by storm through cuteness. There was peckage, coop-building, and eventually, egg-laying. I became enchanted by chickens. Fell in love with their dinosaurean legs and feet, their beady eyes, their dorky walk and constant busyness.
Last year was a flock reshuffle and expansion of quarters. Coop tourists. Health dramas.
This year so far has seen flock reduction and the beginnings of what will be an invigorated egg-laying contingent.
So far we have 2 wee peeps, with another 2 slated to arrive a week later.
One Rhode Island Red (amazingly, wing feathers already, at the advanced age of 3 days old)
