Great links to visit--hope I have time during this busy season.
Thanks for hosting!
I'd love to win the Chicken Feed! Our poor chickens are freezing and need some extra feed :)
Thanks, Kathy, for the chance to win some great prizes! Always appreciate the blog links and, of course, great chicken keeping info, as well. Now I'm off to read about keeping my ladies a healthy weight... :)
Happy Monday, Kathy!
Thanks for this lovely party, Kathy!Have a nice week!Hugs!!!
Kathy,Those photos of chickens in the snow would make an excellent chicken pin up calendar, um, if other people also wanted to pin up photos of chickens looking resplendent . . . perhaps I'm just weird!Today I'm linking up a monster recipe round up--65 other bloggers answered my calls and provided me with recipes in honor of my son's band fruit fundraiser. I collated/curated/whatever them into 13 categories and I share with you 156 Fall and Winter Fruit Recipes. I've got sweet recipes, savory recipes, gluten free recipes, vegan recipes--recipes from breakfast through dessert plus some to put up for later!Since I spent Saturday morning hauling cases of fruit hither and yon, I'm delighted to have such inspiration and to share it with you.One such round up-inspired recipe is (deep breath) Orange Teriyaki Slaw Stir Fry with Orange Ginger Sriracha Turkey Meatballs. This colorful dinner came together quickly and the whole family enjoyed it. I think I've successfully erased the red cabbage stigma after the unfortunate Grilled Radicchio incident of '08.Finally--a pizza! I made an Everything Bagel Focaccia, then set out our favorite bagel toppings and we enjoyed a(n evening) Brunch Bar with everyone topping their slices as they see fit.Thanks for hosting!
love looking at all the blogs and the neat ideas
cranberry sweet rolls , yummy, looks great now to try them out. Thanks for all the recipes. Please enter me in this give a way too, thanks and have a great day.

Thanks for the party, Kathy. Have a wonderful week!Kathy @ Melding Magic

this dummy could use a book about chickens.

Awesome giveaway (as usual!) -- thank you for all your info!
Thanks for hosting these great giveaways!
Thank you for the great giveaways. I could really use the advice when it comes to having a garden with free ranging chickies.
I would love to win that waterer!

Thanks for hosting Kathy. have great week.
Wow, loads of blog hop fun.
Thanks for the chance to win! I really enjoy all the information you provide.
I would love to have a chance to win this.
I learn so much from your blogs. I look forward to finding a few minutes of quiet time to read them. I've noticed I get double emails each time. Is there anyway you can send one, they are always both exactly the same! Thank you :-)
I don't know why that is happening Delia, I apologize for that, but have no idea how to fix that. Did you sign up with two emails and one is being forwarded to the one mailbox? I'm stumped.
Thank you for linking up, Cheryl and welcome to chicken-keeping!
I'm going to make those cranberry sweet rolls! please enter me for the giveaways!
No need to apologize, it's not a problem! I may have had errors logging in when I first signed up and that's probably what caused it. I'll work on it on my end. Please keep me on your email list and thank you for the quick reply! Have a good night :-)
I so appriciate the fact that you take time out of your day to help post much needed info for the rest of the back yard chicken keepers and then also have these great giveaways THANK YOU!!!
I have gotten so many good recipes and ideas and information from your blog hops! Takes me forever to get thru them all.
Fun, isn't it? :)
Thanks Kristina, happy to help. Good luck in the giveaway!
Made a temp water warmer by putting one of those hand warmers (like skiers use) inside a metal tin for tonight. Hoping the cold snap backs off for a few days so I can try to construct one with a bulb inside. Thanks for the tips on winter and chickens.
These blog hops are really good, so much information covering a broad range of topics and interest. Thanks for putting this together.
you have some very creative people following you, good crafts great recipes and lots of chicken info! love it all
Great blog hop!
Thank you for yet another great giveaway!

What an awesome blog! Thanks for sharing. :)
Love all the crafts! Thanks for all the information you share.
wow another giveaway love it!! thank you
I've been good Santa !
I am learning a lot from your FB posts as a newcomer to chicken keeping. Although I haven't tried this idea, I am keep thinking that a radiant heater for the coop made much like the cookie tin waterer heater using a tall tin and having a ceramic lamp fixture attached to the inside of the lid, using an appliance bulb, and attach a chain to hang securely from the ceiling/rafters like a swag lamp. It wouldn't give off light and only a minimal amount of heat. Seems like it would be workable if you need to raise the temp over the roost a few degrees on bitter nights.
thanks for the chance to be a winner and all the great information on your site!
SO many awesome blogs to read today! thanks :)
Really nice prizes! Thanks for the chance to win!
Soooooooooooooooooooo need this book! After finally finishing the fence around the back yard, was so excited to take them out of the small pen to let them finally stretch their wings. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh what they did to my gardens! Can't believe the destruction 6 little hens can do! Now, I fondly refer to them as my "Daughters of Destruction"! they have laid waste to the entire back yard.................and have a really good time doing it too! Got to love them! But, a few flowers would be nice..............or even a bush!
I love all the info Thanks
very nice. Love the giveaways, but u always have such great info.
Thank you! Stay wRm
I read this blog every day!
I really like the blog hop, lots of interesting ideas. Thanks again Cathy!
Thank you for your cold weather tips! I have been concerned for our girls in this cold weather. Also, thank you for another great giveaway.
Glad to see more companies make soy/corn free feed. It's been difficult to find a supplier here!Also..in the picture of the 3 chicks that people can click on to "follow" you..the one for Pinterest seems to be broken. Just FYI. Thanks for another great give away!
My girls would love for me to learn more. Either prize would be great!!!
Cool stuff =) Thanks for all of the great ideas and opportunity to win
I hope I win. I'd love to have a Christmas gift for our chickens.
Love the info you share. The giveaways a pretty sweet too!! ;-)
Keep up the great work, I always look forward to your posts!!
It would be great to win the chicken garden book or the food (the girls would prefer the food prize of course...) Please enter us!
After getting bunnies a few weeks ago and seeing how much I love having them hopping around, I think I am getting closer to being ready for chickens in the spring! Thanks for all of your tips!
Nice prize thanks for all info
Great info as always! Thank you.
Thank you ma'am!
Thanks for all the great suggestions, advice, giveaways, and photos. You have really inspired me in my chicken-keeping projects, and helped me avoid some real pitfalls. I have met several folks since starting this little hobby of mine who say they are thinking of getting some backyard chickens. First thing out of my mouth is, "What are you going to do to protect them from predators?" I inevitably have to give the hardware cloth vs. chicken wire talk...
Great giveaways! Would love to try that feed.
also thanks for your great giveaways and great blog!
My husband could use that book. Our girls manage to eat everything he's planted so far, much to his bemusement.
I'm hoping to win the book. I enjoy the facebook posts the most.
would love to win one of the prizes!
Next summer will be the first summer we will be gardening with fully free-range chickens ... I would love that book! I'm going to add it to my amazon wish list just in case!
Thank you for the chance to win!
both good giveaways, but we are 1st time dummies raising chickens
Thanks for the great blog!
Thanks for the drawings. You always provide things we can really use! =D
I love the copper Christmas tree. I don't think I would want to put it away after Christmas.
LOL! They're efficient!
I'd love to win a prize for my husband, who is the main caregiver for our little five hen flock. I get to change their water frequently, though in this frigid New England weather. Hope I can talk him into making a cookie tin water heater for this winter. Seems very simple, and I got the tin last winter.
I would live to win! We only adopted our lil companions this year and learning a lot!
What a great giveaway! Both would be welcome additions in our house or coop!
Would love to win something!!! Love your blog, and you fb page! Great info
Love that Organic feed is becoming more available especially now with that GMO corn is in so many animal feed brands. Thanks!

Would love the scratch. Been worried over the chicky babies all day their coop is protected from the elements but there is just so much snow I worry about them freezing because of the snow packed up around the coop. Husband and I might just have to bundle up and bring them in the house.
I enjoy all your posts and pictures of your many chick friends...they are too cute!
I love your dayly posts and information!

Thanks Cheryl. :)

Would love the GMO feed. Still working on getting local feed store to carry it!
I thought I entered this but can not find it. I might need the book for dummies but I really want the scratch and peck feed. Loved the comment below about her "daughters of destruction." Every Saturday I blow or rake pine straw back to the place it belongs. I can relate!
Love, love, love reading all your posts, blogs, captions, you name it!!
again, I am entering the contest for the book or the food. and again... the girls want me to win the food - they couldn't care less about the bood as it is not edible...
Much better, thank you for asking, Marsha. :)
He's great, Jan! Several pics of him on FB today. :)
