Enjoying Farm Life

So... it's been a while.  We've definitely been busy!

In May, we moved to our new location.  A quaint and very rural piece of property just outside Nolensville, TN.  We've been busy adding buildings and chicken coops and are soon to add MORE CHICKENS!  I have 7 eggs in the incubator now (only 4 appear to be fully developed); they should hatch mid-week.  We will also be adding another large coop, the largest we've ever had... a 14' duplex coop made by Heritage Ways Farm in the next few days.  We'll also have our self-serve Egg Shack open in the next few days as well.  Just a few signs to put up and we're ready to go!

In the past few weeks our little farm has been added to the Local Hens website as well as Pick TN Products.  Getting approval from the Dept of Agriculture was certainly exciting!

On a more somber note, we said, "Goodbye" to Bud, our Lavender Orpington Rooster last week.  He laid his head down next to his favorite hen and went to sleep forever.  He was such a sweet gentleman; it was shocking and hard to see him pass, but I believe it was for the better in the long run. We suspect he had neurological problems from the time he was born.

So, here are a few pictures of the coops and the Swedish Flower Hen flock.  They'll be more to come as we get things moving along.
