A Day With the Chickens

I'm back... again!! Once and for all, I have finally found out what it is I am allergic to. Soybeans (no dietary issues) and Asian Beetles. This is why I suffer so badly this time of year. The allergy clinic I am going to does a treatment to develop a resistance to allergens. Hopefully, by this time next year I won't harvesting today, so I should get some relief in air quality soon.

Sooooo... That's where I am at. In the mean time... we did have a good day with clear air, so I wasn't suffering and got to go spend some time with the chickens. They have started laying eggs! Yeay!! It is so exciting bringing in eggs each day.  We are finally getting enough that I will be checking with my former egg customer and see if they are ready for some eggs!

 Our little bantam rooster

 The Buff Orpington hens, are the most gentle and social chicken I have been around yet.

 No eggs from the American yet.
This lady is one of my favorites. Her personality and coloring reminds me so much of my first hens.

  The gang.

 ALWAYS keeping a watchful eye.

 Surprise! After leaving the coop and walking around seeing what all was going on, 
I found a few raspberries waiting to treat me!

Do you like the "filters" on the chicken photo's or do you prefer a more natural light?


  1. Beautiful chickens. I have no idea what Asian Beetles are though! Best wishes with the allergies. Cheers from Carole's Chatter

  2. I like the filters. And I like the natural light too. It is fun to play with the apps with the photos.
    I love all your chickens.

  3. So glad you found out what you're allergic to!

  4. Oops, I wasn't quite well done commenting :-) I love all your pictures I think the natural light is beautiful but I dig the filtering too. Not a lot of help there :-)
