It’s been awhile since my last post. The reason was we went to New Orleans to volunteer ourselves to assist friends and relatives whose homes were devastated by the “man made disaster” that contributed to the flooding after Hurricane Katrina. I will post soon about our experience there.
We just got home today and are settling in. Sadly, on arriving home this morning, we found our bantam hen, Peggotty, had passed away in her sleep last night. We had known for about a week or so that her time here on the homestead was short. We shall miss her.
Our flock is slowly shrinking due to old age. We’ll have to decide come Spring if we want to bring in some new baby chicks. Right now we aren’t quite sure if we will still be living here – there’s only so much one can do (and take) in this urban environment. We shall see, taking it one step at a time.
