Of Roosters, Hens, And A Day Off

We've been wanting to get a few chickens again, since we lost Lottie.
Cash is our rooster and Fiona is our new hen - a silky, who either came from Hospitality Lane to our friends who gave us to her, or she is one of the babies that hatched from a chicken given. Either way, she is a sweet little chicken.
We want to get more layers, but for now Lindsay has a start on her breeding program. She wants a few hens, separate from what will be our regular laying hens, who will live with Cash and hopefully hatch out babies.
We have some work on a bigger coop to get done, before we can get other chickens, though.
There is always something going on at the Cottage.
I must say I really enjoyed my labor free day. We didn't play any card games - I did offer - but I got some sleuthing in and am very close to closing the case! Nancy Drew and I have been companions since my girlhood. I love the computer games!
Today it is back to our normal routine, school and I will run Lindsay into the shoppe.
I will check my menu and see what meals are left on my two week list. That will make dinner easy.
Signs of Autumn are everywhere...I am excited about that!
