Chickens Stories from Our Nest

Rainy Days, Mucky Runs and Back-Up Plans

We are due for rain this entire week!  As we have the mini-chickens now living outside, I actually dragged out the plastic cover for the run that I used this past Winter to cover it from snow.  With the cover, I figured I could keep the run dry and provide the girls with lots of leg room instead of being confined to the coop.  It should also prevent the run from becoming too mucky and muddy. 

I also would like to let you know that Tilly’s Nest is still affected by the recent Blogger outage.  Please bear with me as I try to restore the deleted items and “Past Family Member” page to our site. I cannot tell you how upset I am with all of the work that went into creating those missing items.  You see, I never write down anything prior to sitting at the computer.  I blog from my heart and my head.   So, yesterday, I took a big step.  I decided to “Slurp” my blog into a book. 

Did you know that with the touch of a button, you can give the website, Blurb, permission to import all of your blog content into a book? They have many book options and you can choose from various sizes and number of pages.  I had been feeling so frustrated.  Now, my blog and my memories will be bound together printed on paper.  It is going to take sometime, but in the end, I know it is going to be worth it!

Hello friends, welcome! Follow along on our chicken, beekeeping, gardening, crafting and cooking adventures from Cape Cod.

  • We've been having the same rainy, mucky weather up here in my area, too. I'm finding out that chicken keeping is a 24/7, 4 season job!

    Re: recent Blogger outage…I just discovered a missing comment on one of my blog posts. I guess that I should check to see if anything else is missing 🙁

    Thank you for the tip about Blurb–never heard of it, but I will check it out.
