More on travel and babies soon but just had to share our Clara sharing about her chickens…
When Mike suggested we have chickens at our small barn a few years ago I thought, “gross”.
Then he bought 6 little chicks. Awwww, they were SO CUTE!
The kids and their friends had the greatest time bonding with their chicks by name and cuddling them daily.
The first batch were so tame our 1 yr old Clara would catch them constantly. Barnyard FUN!
Now I am amazed that our chickens even look downright picturesque as they peck away bugs around our barn!
Mike can’t wait to use them to keep the bugs away from the brand new orchard trees we planted last fall.
Best part of a chicken? They are the lowest maintenance animal, ok, well, bird, and the MOST PRODUCTIVE! They lay an egg EVERY DAY! How COOL is THAT?
No more eggs from the store, now we enjoy farm fresh, free-range, organic chicken eggs daily! I can’t help but ‘CHEEP’ about that!
So HURRAY for nature’s miracles! Look around and notice some of those small, but awesome miracles of life in your world today!
And while you’re thinkin’ here’s a view of Clara catching chickens! Enjoy!
