I have been a little lazy with the recipe postings the past several days. But Mike has been feeling SO good this past week and a half, we have been tilling the garden, weaning our filly, and planting the kitchen garden. We have also got 7 more chicks which are Hampshire Red Pullets. Mike is searching CraigsList now for Bar Rocks. And an incubator.
Some bad news, one of my older Rhode Island Reds drowned in our horse trough last week and a month ago one just disappeared. I think an owl got her. But 7 out of my 8 hens are laying. One is a bantam hen, Booted and Bearded d’Uccle. She has feathers on her feet and is SUCH a diva! She is the smallest hen, about 22 ounces but she is the loudest and sounds like the original Jungle Fowl when she starts.
Stay turned for more recipes. Mike made a beer batter chicken fried vension steak a couple nights ago and it was excellent. I’ll post that recipe tomorrow as soon as I finish making some homemade Italian sausage.
Thanks again for reading!
