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..
I have tried before to tame my hens. It is hard to do unless they are handled a lot when they are baby chicks.
This is Lily. She comes running to me anytime I happen to open the back door..In fact she often stands at the door waiting... It is funny to see her come a running. The other 4 hens quickly follow but only Lily will wait for us to pick her up.. We stroke her feathers and gently release her to eat the treats.. I do love my chickens.. it is cold here dipping below 20 at night so I make sure to feed the "girls" warm treats before they retire to their coop. They really love warm noodles, rice and oatmeal.. I make sure they get the left overs. I have not had to put a heater in their coop..they seem to huddle together just fine.. Their water however is heated and inside the coop. Yeah, I think my "girls" are special and spoiled too...
