Sorry for the silence, everyone. It's not that I'm not thinking of you! It's making me crazy that I haven't been posting here enough. I've been dealing with an explosion of honey (lots of beekeeping), homework assignments for the writing courses I've been taking, barn chores, work and whatever else. I am starting to feel my age!
Anyway, we had a little party for the birthday chicken this weekend and my friend Ronna made this fantastic cake:
The chicken part was chocolate cake, the rest was red velvet. Fantastic!! Ronna did a blog post about it too.
I love this hen. She better live forever!
Blowing out the candles (and wow, looks that patch of grey!)
Charlotte even got presents, like these freeze-dried mealworms from our friends Pierre and Kathy.
And also a rubber chicken, a stuffed chicken, a hen house dip bowl, yogurt and a watermelon!
Charlotte and her babies LOVED the yogurt...
On top of everything else, she's started moulting!
And my friends' kids made a beautiful album all about Charlotte...
We are lucky to have such wonderful people in our lives!
And here's a video of the birthday girl and her kids, enjoying yogurt..
PS: Redford the barn cat is being sighted almost every day and is eating his nummies at his feeding station!
