I want fluffy-butted feathery egg-laying hens running around my yard and laying eggs so I can have eggs to do stuff with (mostly just eat!)but alas, I do not have a yard. I have a balcony on the second floor apartment I live in and the chickens would have to share it with my two cats who love to watch the birds out there. So I’ll just enjoy your chickens, Suzanne! And the cow and sheep and dogs and cats and goats and all….. On May 2, 2010 at 7:30 am Log in to Reply Grace Reynolds says: What could it be? Has anyone guessed? No, don’t tell me. I love surprises!

Looking forward to the announcement and the excitement it will produce among us readers… or should that be “we readers”, I never know about such things. It drives me batty, can anyone tell me the correct word??? 😕 😕 😕 I bet Suzanne knows. On May 2, 2010 at 11:24 am Log in to Reply Jo says: Can hardly wait! I might actually stay up ’til midnight when your blog posts automagically so I can find out sooner!!! :happyfeet: :moo: I got my very first chicks (1 doz) about a week ago! Looking forward to the experience! I got them from the local farm store and they’re called “brown egg layers”, how’s that for original? 😆 I even asked the people that worked there, hoping to find out what they’re called (like a Buff Orpington or Rhode Island Red, etc…) and they all said, “They’re called brown egg layers, that’s all we know.” :shocked: On May 2, 2010 at 11:34 am Log in to Reply Shirley T says: I’m just wondering if you ever process any of those chickens for your family food?

We only have a small acreage, so we are very limited…BUT..we are starting. A kitchen garden building a clothesline building a chicken coop and a shed for a milk cow getting back to the old ways.. self sufficiency rules… I can’t wait to have Chickens in the yard. and it’s all YOUR FAULT!!! Thank you, Suzannah… [email protected] cottage On May 2, 2010 at 1:13 pm Log in to Reply Mary says: No one responded to Barbee’s question as of yet, so I’m going to take a stab. Regarding “excitement it will produce among us readers”.. us would be correct, not we readers. We wouldn’t say excitement among we. We would say excitement among us…object of the preposition “among”. I don’t have a great education, and I’m sure someone else could explain it better, but I’m sure “us readers” is correct… On May 2, 2010 at 1:27 pm Log in to Reply Yankee Gal says: :wave: I just love those fluffy chicken butts!

I think I will copy and paste it into a Notepad entry. I need to start a collection of tips to help me write. I appreciate your stepping up and taking a stab. I don’t think anyone could have done a better job. That is very nice of you. :happyflower: On May 2, 2010 at 4:26 pm Log in to Reply whaledancer says: Hmm, Little Red Hen mode… You’re going to ask who will help you to plant wheat, and harvest it, and thresh it, and take it to the mill, and bake bread. And those who say “I will!” to all of the above will get to help eat the bread. Right?
