poultry brevities




In poultry, as well as in butter and milk, the farmer's wife can establish a reputation for having the best. Let her see to it that eggs over a week old are never marketed, and when she kills and markets birds let them be in prime condition – well fattened and carefully dressed and cleaned. 

– Rickards Realty Review, 10 November 1909


Thank you Brenda for that wonderful pamphlet!

Do you have chickens? Do you love them?!


Over here tonight: a Japanese sewing pattern and red wine. (What could possibly go wrong.)

Wow, I’d love to see the pamphlet – totally tickles my fancy! Your evening sounds much nicer than my sad one. Hope nothing went wrong…

I’m so far behind. You’re selling eggs! You’ve moved? You’re renovating? I can’t work it out! You’re going to plant coffee!?!

Oh dude, I am so struggling with my life at the moment – feeling keenly all the compromises and fiscal shortfalls and while I desperately try to cling to the wonderful – a gorgeous day, growing funny boys, a well baked cake or a dinner loved by all I’m just finding it all so so hard.

You’re an inspiration, you really are.

Firstly – I am always so amazed at how often a blog I have been following shows up comments from other blogs I follow – eg: kim@all consuming and many others
Secondly – we have 3 chooks- and it is amazing how they communicate – we had to put them in the wire enclosure so we could go out to dinner without worrying about putting them away – the “concerned” chatter that went on was almost heartwrenching!
Thirdly we love our chickens

We’ve moved here, its lovely but I do miss my chooks so was sooo pleased to see lovely chooks free ranging across on the other side of the road from us, I could even hear them happily clucking and a few times even stood out at the letterbox just to see them. Looking forward to the next time their mobile chook run is parked out front Cheers KP
