Thank Heaven for Week Eleven...

  "Who's a good little feather baby?"    Sara really loves these chickens just a little too much.

"Who's a good little feather baby?"    Sara really loves these chickens just a little too much.

About Camillias:  Our flock of 46 Gold Star hens is also know as the Camillias, because I decided instead of trying to name each one, that they'd all get the name Camilla - the chicken girlfriend of Gonzo in the Muppets.  They are such a joyful group of ladies!  They have a safe, indoor part of their house in a lower barn, where they get their organic grain feed, they lay their eggs, and they go in to sleep at night.  They also have an outdoor paddock (fenced in barn yard) to roam, eat bugs, clean their feathers in the dirt, and where we feed them all manor of vegetable scraps.  They go crazy for the lettuce and the tomatoes!  And I once saw a fight break out over a golden beet!  These feather babies have been a great addition to our farm and our lives this year.

Enjoy your veggies and have a great week!
Love from your farmers,
Paul & Sara
