Chickens

we finally got some chickens.... well over a month we did but yah I am really behind in my blogging!! anyways it is so great to finally have them here....now if they would only lay eggs!! hehe they were laying a few a day but this last week they have not laid a single egg!! ahhhh, oh well guess you cannot force these things.

I ended up staying at my job but negotiated 3 days a week and had a good talk with him about what is appropriate to say and what is not! I am in the process of hiring someone to job share with me now and hope by Christmas I will be down to p/t. All things considered I think I may get back some of my sanity...... more to come in a bit I have to run for now!

Chickens are cool. I hope they start laying eggs again soon.

I hope that will work out in the job situation and you find the right person to share your job with you.

Do you have a light in your coop? Chickens need a certain amount of light and heat to lay everyday. They usually don't lay so much in the winter unless to provide the artifical light and heat. Hope that helps!

I'm only in the office 3 days a week and I LOVE it. It makes such a difference to be home more days a week.
