it is early and the sun is not up yet.....smile! The roosters are doodling as I type. I don't have much time, but I wanted you to meet........
Miss Emma. She just came to the farm yesterday. She is so big, beautiful and very very sweet. In this picture she is sitting on my lap on a plastic bag. In the morning when we left for church.....I had no intentions of buying a "Girlie"......but I did! Right after church we went to the State Fair for just a bit......for one reason. To gather some feathers. I know......most people go to see the booths....eat.....and ride rides. Me......I go to see the chickens. They always have feathers that are on the floor, in the empty cages and along the side of the cages. I was gathering them with the help of my sweet man. He has a good eye! Then I was just about at the end and I saw her and a lot of others like her. Buff Orpingtons are the sweetest of hens. I noticed that some of her type were for sale! I was on a mission and nobody could stop me! Ha! I called the number and the lady was standing right by me. Emma was for sale for sure and I could buy her. I did and could come back and pick her up at 3:00. I did not have a box or a cage. You should have seen the people stare at her when I was walking back to the car. She sat on my lap all the way home. She is one big "Girl". It is the type that she is. I was so excited I didn't bother to ask, but I do have access to the ladies number and I will be buying a rooster from her! I will be keeping her separate from the others. I do have another Buff rooster......not of her kind....but I may put them together in a separate pen. Eeeekkk! I will get better pic's....because I am sure you must want to see. Right? I just love her......as I said it wasn't my intension to buy yesterday......but I am so glad I did. She will be so fun to show when the Lord brings who ever He wants to bring to the farm. She is so unique and so beautiful!! Can't wait until she has babies.
Oh one more thing. Yesterday I was thinking......."Lord it would be so neat if Miss Red would hatch another baby chick when the family comes." As soon as I got home I went to check if she had any eggs that either hatched or were ready. I jumped....she DID have a little peep hole in an egg and a little one was chopping away on the inside. I will tell you the rest of the story later.......it is totally amazing and it is so precious, because my God the creator of good things...... cared about my measly little desire. It blessed the little 2 year old boy and his Momma........just like I was thought it would. They are from the city for the most part! Can't wait to tell you!!!!
I will post later also about the dinner last night..... after I get home from the bakery! It was so so delightful. The Potter's Shed was so beautiful all lit up by the time evening came.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and SONday! We did......God was with us last night.....in a very real and precious way!
Hugs to you and may God bless you bunches today,
