Adventures with Chickens

Wow!  Have we been busy.  I rolled out some new products that passed our testing:  Hair Mask for Light or Dark Hair and an AMAZING Chocolate Mint lip balm - yum!  But what really kept us hopping was the chickens!  They are about a third or more fledged and love to practice flying.  Some of our little ones are trying to escape the fish tank/brooder!

So far the chickens are named: Spaz (he is a VERY different chicken!), Zeke, Happy Feet 1 and 2, Beaker, Spike, Stripe, Goldie, Ginger, Marmalade, and Big Bird.  So far Spaz has tried jumping out 3 times!  All of the girls love to go outside.  Sunday they found (with Dad's help ;)) some yummy grub worms and earthworms.  They had a great time practicing to be big girls - scratching, exploring, and playing "Chicken Keep Away" with the treasures they found.  I will be posting a video in the next day or so.  It is HILARIOUS!

I am so happy that for the Downtown Farmers' Market I have produce:  Swiss chard, basil, peppermint, cilantro, parsley, serranos  cucumbers, and sage!  There are a lot of  tomatoes of all kinds on the vine and lots of spinach, turnip and collard greens, green beans, and lettuces coming in.  Most should be ready for next market.
