Hens and Roosters a Wonderful Variety in my Backyard

My 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 hindrance, 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 at 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.

Remembering Traveling San Blas Islands In Panama

The San Blas Islands are in Panama. They are a true paradise!

A visit to the San Blas islands can be an incredible experience. You will love it just like I did when I visited there. I was so pleased that we risked the unknown!ย

What was there to do on these paradise islands? Other than swimming, snorkeling, walking their perimeter, and relaxing on the beachโ€ฆ not very much!ย What aย beautifully unfussy life!

No one is in a hurry or clutching a mobile phone. There is no TV or radio blaring. You can spend hours relaxing in a hammock suspended between two picture-perfect palm trees.

The locals are very friendly. I felt like there was a real sense of passion and pride amongst them. It was a real pleasure to meet them and talk to them.

Hurry Up the Lovely Cat Train is Leaving

If you love cats as much as I do, you definitely have to watch this short video!

I do almost the same thing with my cats, I just use 1 cat and 1 hard cardboard box at a time. But this is a fantastic idea, you know, to do it with all my beautiful cats at the same time using wheels so it’s easier to pull them.

I think I am going to be busy this coming weekend …. purrrrr
