New Baby's here at Ravenswood.  My eggs did not hatch AGAIN !
Non fertile, so alas will go to plan B and try again with better stock management. But hat said I got 6 chic's from my feed and grain this weekend  so the little peeps are chirping away.

Please have a safe and happy weekend.....


The sun shines bright, burning hot
as we watch from this tarmac.

In boonie hats and digital cams
straight and tall, brave young men.

No tears of joy will fall today,
As you march off into harm's way.

On bended knee we stop and pray,
for a safe return to this tarmac.
In digital cams, with boonie in hand.

Well Long time but i am trying to recover...

Hi to all, Its been a while. I am pushing hard to get back on track .. My apologies... for such a long lapse..

 Well spring is here, and many changes "But" as always spring chores are top priority here @ Ravens Wood .. Bee's little cottage is buzzing with bees this year. We had a mild winter, and the hives did well.. Gardens are in the works, and LOTS of planting this year. I joined a neighborhood farm stand.. "Sweet Pea Farm". I also am hatching out chicks again this year.  French Copper Marans,  the chocolate egg layer... just trying for a few ... but it will be nice as I lost 3 of my sweet hearts this last year..
