We’re now running Chickens!

Jan has long been an inspiration… for a good number of reasons — but namely, us getting our very own place and raising chickens. Brett bought a dozen Rhode Island Red Langhorne cross chickens and after a couple week delay (weather and cabin builds) got the chicken palace completed. It has automatic waterers, feeders, and is both rat and snake proof. While the chickens are yet to lay an egg… they are eating lots of food, pooping everywhere, and settling in quite nicely.

Another treasured contribution from Jen & Willie…

We have a good number of friends who support us with help, give aways, and Herc. Jen and Wille have been so generous and helpful with their renovation — we’ve had some great new plants and pavers from their front yard. Nick and I hired a truck to move the weighty pavers and Jeff brought out some Dracena plants (a.k.a. Dragon Trees in Greek). They are now planted and the pavers are waiting further placement — while we recover from the exhausting task. MANY THANKS Jen and Willie!
