Follow our adventures

Follow our adventures as we raise a tiny flock of chickens in suburban Bexley, Ohio.
Our chicken bloggers include Tami Taylor, a Welsummer, and Tyra, a Jersey Giant.
RIP, Betty, Joan, Sally & Peggy.

Long time no post

It's been months since I posted on the blog but we have a good excuse. In November we were joined by baby Lolly. I'm so excited to share the chickens with her once she's old enough to care. I think chickens are a perfect project for kids.

Shortly after Lolly was born, we lost Peggy. She died in the coop of natural causes. Though we think that it was probably lingering trauma from the raccoon attack. Poor Peggy. Tyra and Tami Taylor were giving her a wide berth. I think they knew she wasn't well. I'm glad she could die at home, and hopefully she wasn't in too much pain.

The longer days mean we're finally getting eggs from Tyra and Tami Taylor. I am so looking forward to spring. I think they are too. They're not too excited about going out in the snow.

In other news, earlier this month we were interviewed by a woman who is writing for Edible Columbus. They're doing a story on urban chickens. I'm sure all of that like everything else in edible Columbus it will be a lovely story. We are looking forward to reading the spring edition.
