Yes, you read well, fruit. Did you know that zucchini and squash are actually fruits and not vegetables?
THIS BEAUTY IS IN MY GARDEN
Since squash contains seeds and develops from the flower-producing part of a plant, it is botanically a fruit. Squash isn’t the only plant that gets confused for a vegetable. Other fruits frequently called veggies include tomatoes, eggplants, avocados, and cucumbers.
One of my babies taking a watermelon bath tab. The chichens had lot of fun eating this fruit afterwards!
Hens and Roosters
My dream flock would consist of one of probably every breed. I like chickens this much.
I am totally egg obsessed and trying to achieve the most colorful egg basket (and colorful chickens) in my suburban backyard. Seasonal availability and hatchery minimums are somewhat a hinderance, so I’m dependent on what my local feed store happens to carry or what I can produce myself using my incubators by mixing hens and roosters of different breeds, thus getting a variety of eggs.
My current laying birds include Easter Egger, Buff Orp and Blue Wyandotte. I am getting more chicks next week: Black Dominant Copper and an Olive Egger. I wanted to get a white or cream egg layer. The store is getting a new shipment the end of the month.
Can’t decide between White Leghorn, Sicilian Buttercup, Speckled Sussex or…. Columbian Wyandotte-just because I want a white chicken and they’re so beautiful even though they lay brown eggs.
