Living on Cape Cod we have access to great seafood year round.  I have many ways I love to prepare fresh seafood.  I found a similar recipe on the internet years ago and adapted it to suit my family’s taste.  This is very easy, quick and delicious and I usually serve it with french fries.…

Epcot’s Flower and Garden Show 2010 There comes a time in every backyard chicken keeper’s life when you will take a vacation.  It might be just overnight or it might be for a week or longer.  Whatever the length, it can provoke some anxiety.  The first time I left my chickens with the chicken sitter,…

Silkie Bantams frequently go broody. Broody hens are quite interesting.  Dolly, one of our Silkie Bantams, seems to be broody about every 8 weeks.  Thus, we have developed a broody routine.  A couple times a day, I remove her from her nesting box and set her out into the run with the rest of her…

Today, the smell of Spring was in the air.  The sunshine was out and I could not resist letting the girls out on a lazy Sunday.  Happy as can be, they sprinted into action.  I like to take a seat on the ground and enjoy watching their adventures.  Today, Tilly stayed close to me instead…

It seems that every Spring, I purchase a new pair of boots.  A good pair of waterproof boots is essential for chicken keepers.  Whether I am in the garden or tending to the chickens, I love to slip on a pair of boots that keep my feet dry in any weather.  Come to think of…

Today I removed the hen saddle from Dolly.  Just as expected, it took three weeks for her wound to heal and new feathers to return.  Her feathers have grown back beautifully.  Truthfully, I was a bit sad to remove the hen saddle from her.  When it was on, she didn’t seem to mind it and…

A few weeks ago, we highlighted a few of our favorite Spring items from Hobby Hill Farm in our Spring Sponsor’s Shopping Guide.  One of the featured items was their embroidered Poultry in Motion baseball cap.  We were delighted this week, when Hobby Hill Farm asked us if we would help launch their new Poultry…

Oyster Cracker holds a seed in her beak. March certainly has come in just as always, like a lion.  The first few days of March have brought us colder temperatures, freezing rain and little sunshine.  Last night it dipped down to 19 degrees F.  I could not seem to warm up.  This morning, the air…

One of the biggest questions that I had prior starting out on my honey bee keeping journey had to do with how the chickens and the bees will coexist in my yard.  I was nervous because I knew nothing about keeping bees. Yet I knew a lot about keeping chickens.  I wondered to myself?  Will…

We all have our nighttime rituals.  Most of us wash our faces and brush our teeth.  Some fall asleep while watching TV.  Others find a final escape in a good book or pillow talk before drifting off to dreamland.  Chickens are no different.  They too have bedtime rituals. It all starts at dusk, with the…
