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..

Saturday Morning treat


Its been awhile since I posted  about the "Girls"
They come running when they see me headed to the Garden shed where we store their feed..  They eat 
the meal worms right from my hand..but wait  There are a couple missing... I call them.. I check their coop... Yep! they are busy .. but will get their treat later..  They have been really good through out the cold winter.. laying 3-4 egg a day.. Our Black Australorp is the oldest and she has been slow to lay .. only a couple a week... She keeps the other girls in line.. and usually sits late afternoon.. I love my chickens.. they  are so entertaining and is first to come get her treat..
