  9. I'm a subscriber of your very informative blog... many thanks for sharing such great info with us!. Trying to enter the contest for the cutesy and wonderful Henbags, but confused about which blog to post on. :) :) I read the blog and left a message on Community Chickens... wow, very nice examples of egg irregularities there. My hens have produced some of those odd eggs on occassion... so glad to know they are not the only ones and that other's do as well. :) If I am blessed enough to win one of those awesome Henbags, please email me at aussiedogs4@aol.com (this is the same email addy I receive your blog). Peace and blessings for a wonderfully blessed day.

  16. Love all the pictures and articles about chickens. My Grandparents had a farm and I have such sweet memories of collecting eggs out of the coops, and feeding the chickens. Although I don't have any chickens now, I have friends that do and I'm alwayd forwarding your emails to them. I enjoy reading your blog. I would love to win the chicken handbag, it would be my fall handbag.

    I forgot how cute baby chicks are. I have not been raising chickens for three years now but this site could help me with all the problems I had several years ago. The chickens did not like our 110 plus temperatures at our new home. Thanks for the pictures, information and now I need to convince my husband to let me get back into the chicken business.
