    Those flowers are gorgeous! I am so glad that chickens don't destroy all the flowers!

    Quote:The chickens are confined to the backyard. The flowers are mostly in the front yard or the garden lot. It's like Better Homes and Gardens in the front yard and Hobby Farms in the backyard.

    Quote:Yeah, we are definitely dry. We've had some showers that others in our area haven't so I won't complain too much but we do need some rain.

    Quote:We looked at some houses in Corryton when we were deciding how to combine households. I'm glad now that we didn't buy any of them. It was pre-chickens and the ones we were considering just didn't have the land I would want now.
