Feather your Nest Friday, 30th April, 2021.
Can you believe April is almost over? May tomorrow! This makes me feel the year is flying by too fast.
I had a really good week! Looking back over it I see a week of increase!
Some of the ways we built up our home, garden and preparedness included:
I did some trading. Very often we have a broody hen. But I have no rooster and decided really this is silly as I could be breeding my own hens. I traded eggs and fig trees (that I dug up and potted) for a beautiful rooster. He is an Australorp. I have four hens this breed also. It was a day of adventure. I headed off to meet a lady I knew through a livestock buy, swap and sell group. We met and chatted and she is a wealth of knowledge so I loved talking with her. She handed me a big box and I wasn't game to open it so it wasn't until I got home I saw what I had! It was a trust trade!
Here is my beauty.
