Getting shut down by the city. 

garden

Hey all just wanted to let you all know my chickens will be leaving. They are heading to a new home of which I’m not sure yet… I received a letter saying that someone complained I have “more than 6 chickens”. I’ve only had 2 chickens the whole time… On top of that they say that my chickens aren’t registered. 

She says she has a date planned to come through the backyard. I don’t think it works with my schedule. She said she’ll take pictures over my fence, or from a neighbors deck into my yard. 

She said if the coops is there or the feed, she will issue a ticket. I’m getting rid of the birds but I believe it’s not illegal to have garden art.

I don’t know who would state such untrue statements. I don’t want to make my neighbors upset. I just wish whoever complained would’ve confronted me. I would get rid of them promptly. I just want to know the real reason. I would never want my neighbors upset… 

Pictured above is a pumpkin!!!


Say goodbye to my birds. I will get sculptures of chickens to replace them. That structure isn’t going anywhere, it’s garden art and functional art I plan to store tools inside:) 

Stay tuned and stay happy

Collecting scraps for chickens to eat

chicken coop, Winter 2015

Hey all one thing I do at my farm is I reach out to friends and family to collect scraps for my birds. Everything counts and of its rotten I’ll just throw it in my compost. It’s easy once they get a bucket to fill up for you. Or maybe they grab it from work. I’ve brought home scraps from plenty of restaurants! Hears a little bit of a treat for my chickens, cucumber and celery scraps! Mmmmm!!!

   

   
This is a nice touch to a normally boring diet.

reward your hard work with a egg scramble!

Winter 2015

When working hard keeping chickens it’s important to reward yourself with a couple eggs! I love not having to shop for eggs and have them come home broke. All I do it clean poop, an feed and water, put the poop in my compost pile. Let the cycle keep going:) 

all so did was wisk 2 eggs and season with garlic pepper and garlic salt! And of course a touch of ketchup!

Birds are laying a little less now but I’d say with the 2 hens I’m getting about 1 egg a day. It’s currently about 30 degrees F at night

   
   
Why don’t you go out back and look for eggs?

Thanks
