Home Update - Chickens and family
Hi all! I hope everyone's weekends are going good. Things have been pretty uneventful here lately (thankfully). The chicken sanctuary is on it's way I believe. I have received 2 donations so far totaling $104.00. I'm thinking this is a great start. That money will go toward helping to get feed for the chickens which is costing me about $50 a week right now. It will also go to purchasing lumber for more coops as right now most every one is together, which can cause problems sometimes.
The last couple weeks I have gotten several new boarders, all of which are roosters.
Plus, with the chickens I have, I think I am up to about 47 now. I also have 6 more in the incubator that are due to hatch soon. I will be honest with ya'll here, when I incubate and get roos, we cull them and use them for food at about 6 months. The roos that come to live with me though will live out their days to the end. I hope that everyone understands why this is.

Any amount will help to make sure I can properly care for these fur babies that have been entrusted to me.
The grand baby is growing by leaps and bounds! She is 4 months old as of the 19th. I still can't believe how quickly she is growing though. I keep telling my daughter to take a lot of pictures because before you know it she will be 18.
This is her now:
We could not get her to smile for anything! She's all smiles all the time....right up til you pull out the camera...then nothing! She is just like her mother!
We had to let a couple of our chickens out of their pen to do some renovations to it and hubby got locked in! LOL
I told him if he wasn't nice to me I was going to leave him there.
We got the pool up finally too!
The water is around 90. Because I burn so easily, we usually go swimming after the sun has gone down, so having the water this warm is amazing! Probably wouldn't be so great during the day though.
Well I think that is about it for the last couple weeks here. I would love to hear how ya'll are doing. What are ways you beat the heat this summer?
Have a great day!
