We have had some drama in the coop as the peeking order seems to be shifting. Last years chicks are now full grown ladies and they are not putting up with being bullied by the older woman. They used to have their spot on the lower roost, but they are making a move for higher rank in the flock and on the roosts.
We had a massive windstorm this week as well. It got a little scary, but luckily we sustain no real damage (and there was a lot of it around us.) We were also lucky as we had boiled our sap the day before the winds, so when our collection buckets went flying down the road, we didn't really lose anything!
So what made me smile this week?
I did my first poultry workshop! Here is everything set up and ready for the guests.
Fifi kept an eye on everything for me.
How cool is this!!!! She came just to she little ol me! I was ticked beyond belief.
Breakfast is ready!
This maple syrup better taste damn good, cause I'm limping something awful. I dropped a cinder block on my foot while tending the fire in the evaporator. Stupid sugaring season. But I love me some maple syrup!
So I finally made something with my new found crochet skills.... a mini blanket for Ms Ratty Rat!
She is unsure of this odd addition to her home.
Saw the best vanity plate! LOL
Betty and Mr Bill are out doing yard inspection.
Everyone is snuggled in for the night... together... on the top roost!?!?
Well except Cinder who sleeps by herself on a shelf.
This folks is what weeks of collecting and boiling are all about. Look at the color of that Maple syrup!
Remember to take time out of your busy day to find your own things to make you smile!
