2011: A Year in Review

December 28, 2011

Here I am sitting at the computer as I did last year. I am reminiscing about this past year with our chickens.  We had an amazing year filled with many surprises. This year, our flock said goodbye to Chocolate and Meesha and we added Dottie Speckles and Fifi.  Dolly hatched seven of our own eggs.  We experienced joy and sadness with sweet Percy Peepers.  We learned how to take care of chicken boo boos.  We troubleshooted in our coop.  We shared many Tour De Coops of fellow chicken keepers.  We even created the first ever Hug A Chicken Day on November 5th.  The highlight of the year was when our blog was discovered by Country Living Magazine and received a Blue Ribbon Blogger Award in New York City.  Yet, the best part is how many friends we have made by sharing this blog.

Here are my favorite top 5 blog posts of 2011 that I would like to share with you.

#5  Percy Peepers

#4  Sunshine Necklace

#3  Smiles from Chickens

#2  Tour de Coop~Mary Ann

#1 Country Living Magazine, Blue Ribbon Blogger Awards

I can’t wait to see what next year’s adventures bring for Tilly, the girls and my family.  Thank you for allowing us to share every step of our journey with you and I hope that you will be with us in 2012.

Cheers to 2012!
