Remember the chickens?
I know, I know. I haven’t written about them in a while.
There are a few reasons why they haven’t made an appearance on ye olde blog lately, but it basically boils down to this: They are pretty boring.
It seems that the novelty of my miniature urban farming experiment has worn off and we’ve kind of settled into life here at The Little Hen House.… Read More

Yesterday was so much fun; I wanted to share a little of it with you:

- In preparation for the big parade, we decorated our wagon.

You aren’t seeing double. I accidentally posted this yesterday. Whoops! Let’s try this again…..
If you read Monday’s post, you know that our bossiest and neck-pecking hen Dagny escaped the confines of our backyard and was presumably roaming the streets of the urban metropolis we call home. To be honest with you, I wasn’t 100% upset about her disappearance.… Read More
