Tilly doesn’t feel good.  To begin with, she is not her typical self.  She has been broody for the last week and a half.  Even though she is eating and moving her bowel normally, she just seems so sad.  She is not giddy.  She is not running around telling everyone she is the boss.  Yet…

December 3, 2011 I love it when Tilly runs into the coop from the run when she hears me fiddling with the latch on the nesting boxes. Here she greets me as I open up the nesting boxes to check for freshly laid eggs. I am away for a few days spending time with my…

This morning around 9am I found Tilly sitting in the right nesting box. Sitting in the neighboring nesting boxes were Dolly and Feathers.  Dolly and Feathers are both broody.  I quickly checked beneath all of them for eggs.  There were none, so I went on my errands for the morning.Read moreTilly’s Feat

Robins return each year habitually to hatch eggs. Habits can be classified as good and bad.  I think that we all tend to have both.  Good habits can benefit us directly and some are even chore-like.  When I think of good habits, I think of brushing my teeth, setting a bed time, eating healthy (or…

The eyes are the window to the soul. ~traditional Proverb Today, I stole a quiet moment.  It had been long overdue.  The kids were playing so nicely and quietly together that I took time to sneak off into the gardens and brilliant sunshine where I have been working all week long.  I found a place…

June 2011 Tilly and Oyster Cracker were enjoying digging and scratching in the same hole.  When one would pick their head up, the other would put their head down.  Chicken Teamwork.

May 2011 While out free ranging this past Spring, Tilly found an oak branch and took it with her all over the gardens.  It was so funny to watch as she dragged it from place to place. We are away this week visiting Mickey! Feel free to leave comments and captions for this week’s photos.…

I’ve been waiting two years.  I’ve known that one day it would eventually happen late in the evening when we had settled in for the night.  It would wake me from a deep sleep.  I would immediately run to the coop with my heart racing and my throat tight.  Finally, it happened last night. At…
