Some news...

Some good and some not good.

First the bad news.  We lost a chicken last Wednesday.  She hadn't been feeling good and wasn't eating or drinking much and had taken to sleeping all day in the coop.  We were concerned as she seemed to be going downhill fast.  Since she seemed to be cold, we brought her out in the sunshine for some warmth and talked and petted her.  Lucy passed just a few minutes after we had gone inside.  We buried her beside Molly underneath the butterfly bush.  She was the most tame and my hubby's favorite.  She was three years old and actually we weren't as upset as we thought we would be about her death.  She had a good life.  We'll miss her but this is farming...

RIP Lucy 

Now for some good news...cause life goes on.

We made the final payment for our little cabin.  Emanuel was putting on the roof this week and wanted to get the windows and doors in too that day.  Looks like he might be finished next week.  We'll need to go look at it and call the guy to move it.  We finished cutting up the limbs and stacked the wood last week and got the pad for the cabin all leveled out.  Next up, saving money for the well...and then the stove and then......well you get the idea ;)


  1. It REALLY does hurt when they go. All I have left now are Laverne, Shirley, Lucy, Ethel and Charlie, the rooster. Too cold now to add a new flock - that will have to wait until Spring. Your cabin looks like it is going to lovely!

  2. Funny how you can get attached to them isn't it? We have a Laverne and Shirley too! Can't have a rooster since we are in a subdivision but hope our next batch of chickens will be heritage ones and have a rooster too so we can have our own chicks. Can't wait to get the cabin move in ready. Thanks for commenting!

  3. I'm sorry to hear about Lucy. Being a pet owner myself, I know how hard it is to say goodbye. We recently had to bid a sad farewell to my sister's dear dog, Albert. Glad you had some good news with the cabin!


I love to hear from all the readers of this blog but have decided to close comments to anonymous users, sorry.
