Egg Basket Time



Its that time again.  Spring is in the air, the daylight hours are longer, the weather is warming (sort of), and the chickens are starting to lay more eggs.  It takes roughly 23-26 daylight hours to form an egg.  I have had a rare occurrence where a hen laid 2 eggs in one day, but it was also due to the timing from when the egg before that was made.

I'm pretty sure one of the new pullets we hatched is going to be an olive egger.  Her eggs seem a little more olive than blue or lighter green.  We'll see how that progresses.  I never take for granted the awesomeness of being able to walk into my back yard and collect delicious eggs from happy hens.

We had to cull another rooster and I also gave another rooster away with 5 hens this weekend.  We are now down to 47 chickens (40 hens and 7 roosters) and 2 ducks.  The next day the crew were all upset enough that they only laid about half the eggs they usually do.  There were a few more eggs today, so hopefully, they have settled back down.  If you don't already have chickens and you have the opportunity to do so, I highly recommend them!

Princess Time!



What's sweeter than a daughter and her daddy?  A daughter and her daddy at the Daddy Daughter Princess Ball!  Little Bug is still into everything princess so when I found out (almost too late!) about this year's Daddy Daughter Ball I signed them up.  They went for the first time last year and had a blast.  This year was no exception, they enjoyed it equally as well.

It's important for dads to show their daughters how they should be treated.  The early years are a good time to start building the foundation of what you would like your daughter to expect as God's princess.  God has a plan and purpose for each of our lives and in most cases, marriage is no exception.  What better role model than a godly man she calls daddy to show her not just how she should be treated but also how she should act and behave that is becoming a princess.

More precious memories for her memory book and another step closer to tomorrow.  The days go by quickly and it's nice to cherish the memories along the way.
