Last night when I went to shut the chickens and goats up there was a sad lonely dead hen in the middle of the coop. A sad loss she was so pretty and not to old so who knows why she passed away? The life on a farm teaches us of life and death, it teaches us to care, to respect nature and to have a love for all of gods creatures as they all have a purpose, all the way Down to the small little house spider. At a time of loss you learn to not be sad but that’s the way nature is. I am thankful for this lesson and love this farm life. On another note the rest of the chickens are going strong we are up to 18 eggs a day! And now our only Battle is to keep the hens outta the cat food!
