Spring is very quickly turning to summer here in the Pacific Northwest and the weather has been just beautiful! My husband is over the moon happy that the next few days are going to be clear blue skies with over 80 degree weather. I am not as happy about it as I am more comfortable in the low 70’s, but I suppose I shouldn’t complain. It’s so much better than rain!
Oh babies, why do you grow so fast? It always amazes me how quickly babies – both human and animal – grow. Every parent out there sighs when they see baby photos of their kiddos at a younger age and thinks “where did the time go”? I do all the time.
I am very thankful however that my son has not grown up as quickly as our chicks do! Then I would cry a whole lot more. 🙂
It’s that adorable time of year again, where so many of us either have broody chickens who are sitting on their eggs, or we are buying our spring chicks from a local farm store or chicken farmer.
Our chickens at Scarlett Homestead are the funniest little birds you ever did see. Rob and Judah drive up in the ‘old truck’ every day and as soon as they hear that engine coming up the hill and around the bend they start squawking and flapping their wings because they KNOW that their favorite people are on the way. With snacks most likely.
Back in April we got our first little batch of chickies for Scarlett Homestead. Many of you might chuckle and say “Who cares? Who hasn’t done that before?” Well, the answer there is me, friends.
