The beginnings of our little homestead!

I've always loved animals (maybe a little too much). Ever since I was little I have wanted a ton of critters roaming around but growing up I didn't live on a farm or have the money to expand into the animal world too much. Finally and thankfully, my husband and I moved to Illinois to be closer to his family and we are renting a small little old farm house with a bit of land and a barn. The tenants who lived here before us apparently had mini-horses and a flock of chickens. I was so excited when my husband agreed to let us have chickens. I couldn't expand my tiny farm... read more

Tevye's Illustrated Guide to Hygiene

This is a repost from a thread, but I think it probably works better as an article.   Tevye, as the official Spokesduck of the flock, will now give a lesson in basic hygiene:   The first step is to decide to clean up.  Choose a time when there are no scary rivals in your pool...     Next you puff up your feathers.  This will release the dirt and grime trapped there as well as let more water in to deep clean your plumage...     Then you beat the tar out of your feathers...     I mean it!  Don't be afraid to go crazy!  Dirt, insects, leftover food... read more

It helps the embryo exchange gases and deal with liquid waste Chorio-allantoic membrane: The chorion and allantois fuse to become this. It is critical in exchanging gases between the embryo and the outside air,... read more

Joy in the Journey (A Little Chicken Ownership Memoir)

"Hey, Kathy, I'm in the feed store - can you hear them in the background? Here, listen..... they just got a shipment of chicks! They're so cute!" "No. No, we are not getting chickens." "We still have the coop - it probably just needs cleaned up and repaired a little." "No! When would we possibly have time for them? Especially when they're little - no one is ever home!" "There are these really fun looking ones that - -" "No. Sorry babe, I just can't do it." There was a time when I rarely saw my house while it was daylight. The rat race of a job that probably... read more
