Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Cozy in completed Studio

We finished the Hen Studio Finally!
The girls have lived here a few months while we slowly finished the exterior .
It is ready and occupied by three happy hens. Later we will bring the 7 new girls to join them when they are ready.
Lucille is laying there in the nest (if you look closely.)
We found extra cedar siding behind the backyard fence and there was just enough to put on the studio. It matches our house perfectly. My husband did a fabulous job. (I helped and gave many Unsolisited suggestions , which did not go un-noticed through out the project. ) Today he is still on the helping end of the honeydo list, He transplanted a forcythia bush in the front yard. I have a few other things for him to do, but will be happy to assist him in his timeframe..... The list includes tilling the garden, getting aload of compost dirt so we can plant and I want some more shrubs planted, including the marion berries, and a fig tree.. I know he will be happy that I will be gone a few days so he can relax & do his own projects.. He has built 3 nesting boxes and put those around the property, We are hoping the Mallards that arrived last week on the pond, will settle in and raise a few ducklings. That will be cool.. I will be leaving to visit my Mom & sisters & my kids Sunday morning in Washington. We are having a surprise 80th Birthday party for Mom. We expect a large turnout of family & friends. My Husband will stay home this trip to tend to the chickens, ducks, & dogs, but to show my appreciation I did baked him some oatmeal cookies today. It was the least I could do don't ya think?
