Land of Milk and Honey

Cooking with Honey by Laurie Dotson

Today, I walked out to the back of our property, to feed the girls (Chickens).  We love our girls.  We have 12 laying hens.

I have named them all, but I could not tell you from day to day who is who.  haha! They are all “Girlies!” to me.  Back in March, I had my husband, Peter, build me a portable chicken coop.  I wanted it for a couple of reasons.March 2013 Chicken coopTo Raise Chicken and to have a coop on wheels.

We wanted the girls to have a fresh salad everyday

Everyone is happy! 🙂

So, you can imagine how many eggs we can gather in a weeks time.
