Went to the coop this morning..........this picture always greats me. It is one of my favorites! We have a picture of a precious sister in love of her holding a chicken. I will have to find it in Grandma Jo's pic's. Whenever I see this one it reminds me of Linda (not me my sisser in love).
Good Morning.........sweet ladies!
It is Saturday....did you notice? I slept in just a little bit this Saturday morning........the sun was peeking through our bedroom window.......beautimous is all I can say! It is going to be a warmer day today than usual. Yesterday it was in the 70's.....our bones thawed out a bit. It felt so good leaving work.........on a Friday no less........to a beautiful sunny day........and very warm. When I got Home I went out to go check on one of my sick roosters. Talk about chicken problems on Prairie Flower Farm. I sure have had them this year. I read up on when your "chicken act drunk". He and another rooster (he died) were staggering all over. Some said they needed
electrolytes.......sooooooo.......I am trying it. I have removed him from the coop and he is snug as a bug in a rabbit hutch that was given to us. I gave him some more gatoraid. It is working great. I hope he will make it. The warm weather yesterday and today might help him. If you have any other ideas let me know please. I am learning!
I moved another nester in the coop for the girls. I counted the nest boxes this morning and I have 16 nests for them, thought I had less.......so I am so excited. I hope that might help them. So far the girls have not eaten any more eggs. I think the gathering them faster has helped a ton. Thank you to all the sweet ladies that left me helpful comments the other day. I did everything you told me to do............ except I don't think I will have to put in the golf balls!
Thought you might like to hear my roosters. Love it.........music to my ears!
If you have had a hard week I just want to encourage you to press on. Issues always seem to come up in our lives don't they. Some are very scary and they come like a rushing wind to knock us off our feet. It is so important to keep the Lord before us......stay in the Word.........trusting that He will bring us through. The enemy always wants destruction, that is what he does best. I know a lot of you precious ladies and families have huge situations in your lives. I pray for you that our Almighty God will bring you through. Life is hard here on earth........but He says He won't leave us. I am so grateful to know that. Our family does see that the hard times can be used for our good............ no matter how hard it is. It gives us opportunities to continue to love and forgive and not do harm. We don't want to find ourselves at the end of the day that we have not pleased the Lord........ in the best way we can. I have a precious prayer again from Praying God's Word by Beth Moore. I hope this will bring you comfort..........it has us.
You, O Lord, love me (us) with an everlasting love; You have drawn me (us) with loving-kindness. You will build me (us) up again and I (we) will be rebuilt. I (we) will take up my (our) tambourine and go out to dance with the joyful! Jer. 31:3-4.
Ladies if you are having tough times..............don't give up. Just keep doing good and try your best to do acts of kindness. We do have a Father that is watching ......... it does make a difference how we live! We can trust HIM!
Ladies this is the most most beautiful breakfast bar we have had in a long time. It is now our favorite. I found it on the internet and it is so so so nummy. It is a must try. I just sent it to my farm girl friend Gail and she is going to make it up. She is going to love it. You will also. I wish I could send you each a piece in the mail.
Thank you so much for praying for our Vitaliy...........we sent out our package........can't wait for him to open it! Our Tonya is such a precious Momma to him!
Love you and hope you have a wonderful day! We have a friend Rachel, who is coming today to the farm and she has only been to one farm before. She will get to go to the coop and gather eggs. Well she is now in our Home and she said "nooooooo I am not going to get eggs". So she is going to miss out....city girl!!!! heehee She said she will ride a horse instead. Now I will get pic's of that. We will try to make a farm girl out of her! Smile. Hi Rach! She reads my blog.
WELCOME NEW FOLLOWERS!!!!!! YOU ARE SO NOTICED...........BY ME!
Hugs from our Farm and asking the Lord to bless your day,
