Farmgirl Friday # 51


Welcome to week 51of the Farmgirl/boy Friday Blog Hop!
Your favorite place to learn, grow and share with like-minded folks who don't mind a little dirt under their nails, a little chicken poo on their shoes, and bugs in their home grown salad greens! If you've got a hankerin' to brag some about a project or recipe well, you can do that here too!
Life with busy teens ( along with much cooler and wet weather ) has kept me out of the garden this week, but progress IS being made! It's been wonderful seeing all the new baby chicks  " peeping " up in blog posts everywhere! A true sign that spring is here to stay!

~ stay tuned ~
The second annual Hen House Hop is coming soon! That's where you get to link up and fluff your chicken keepin' feathers about your flocks and coops! 

Come visit me on the shorelines this weekend! I'm having a FLING with SPRING on the MJF BEACH FARMGIRL BLOG and you're invited!
I'm also featuring FARMGIRL Brenda's  ( Ladybug Dreams ) Gun Case Up-Do there too! 


I hope you're all having fun this week playing in the dirt! My girls sure are!

 Whats new in your farmgirl/boy world this week?  Tell us on the hop! 

1.) Write a post about your farmgirl lifestyle and brag a little about your farmgirl talents while your at it! Share what being a farmgirl means to you. Include lots of photos of your farm, crafts, animals, quilts, home decor projects and thrifty make overs, your backyard garden, chicken coop, recipes, studio or workshop. You get the idea!


2). Leave your entry in the Mr. Linky space to your Farmgirl Friday post.


3). Please include the Farmgirl Friday button ( or link back here ) in your post and remember to share this hop with all of your blogging friends!


Have a great week and don't forget to leave a note on the Hen House door today!

Me too Manuela! I'm thinking mid April will be a good time... Folks should have their baby chicks by then and coops ready!

I tried to get a linky on, guess I'm not to good at this. Have to wait until someone can show me what I'm doing wrong.

Happy Farmgirl Friday! I commented at the Beach Farmgirl post but I am not sure if it took or not. I hope it shows up for you because it was rather wordy and I will never remember exactly what I blabbered on about. But mostly it was a thank you for putting a picture of our gun case makeover on the post!

Hi- thanks for hosting this great linky. This week I posted 14 USES FOR ORANGE PEELS AND A RECIPE FOR ORANGE OIL, 40 INGENIOUS USES FOR SALT and a HOT CROSS BUNS RECIPE. I have also included your linky in NMN's directory.
I am looking for wonderful creative bloggers to come share their posts at Seasonal Celebration Sunday over at Natural Mothers Network. And, I really hope that some of you will put Seasonal Celebration on your list linky parties to visit and link to, every Sunday/Monday! Here’s the link: http://naturalmothersnetwork.com
Warmly,
Rebecca x PS_ 15 characters can be quite limiting for accurate title descriptions, it would be much easier at 30?

Hello Deborah-

My neighbor and I are in the process of learning about hens and would like to keep some girls in one of our yards. Is there a particular book or website that you recommend for info on starting up? What breeds are well suited for coastal northeast? We need hens that would ideally be very docile around children but good layers and cold hardy. We have a wooded area with some patches of grass for free range and will be building a coop. Any tips or advice you have for us would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hi Christine,
We've been keeping hens for 7 years in the coastal northeast. These breeds are cold hardy and good layers: Rhode Island Red, Buff Orpington, Easter Eggers/Americana/ Plymouth Barred Rock, Golden lace/ Silver Wyandotte, Silkies, and I'm sure there are more! Right now most of our flock are Easter Eggers. They are kind, mellow, wonderful layers and cold hardy too!

www.tillysnest.com ( a cape cod flock )
www.mcmurryhatchery.com

Check the Library for books on chicken keeping or Google amazon for the latest published books on the subject. There is a lot of info out there! Good luck to you ladies... Keep us posted on what kind you get!!!
