Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop # 56


 Yahoo! It's Farmgirl Friday time again! 

This week is our 56th week of gathering together to share what's doin' on our farmsteads,  homesteads, backyards farmyards and urban landscapes! 
 Keeping backyard chickens is certainly a " farmgirl/guy" sort of thing and I want to thank everyone who linked up for the second annual Hen House Hop! We had 13 terrific entries this time around all of which I shared at Dandelion House Facebook . As promised I have a surprise gift for one lucky Hen House Hopper!  Becky of Thoughts from a Daughter of the King blog spot will receive 10 handmade note-cards courtesy of " The Cottage Hens" here at Dandelion House! 

 Here's a look at the images " the girls " chose for her! 

 
 









                             Now it's YOUR TURN  to flaunt your farmgirl/farmguy flair!

 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!



Dandelion Wishes,
Deb

I have had to be creative today to keep my girls cool. They have been incredibly hot the past two days. Tomorrow won't be much better, but at least they will be better prepared.

Love the photos!!!

Hi Deb,
I am a farmgirl, and I am so happy to have found your blog. I've been searching for just the right girls to learn a thing or two or a million things from, and I can see that I've come to the right place. I hope you can come visit me at french country northern charm, (I was born a Yankee like your hubby, but have had the opportunity to move around the country a bit, moving back to New England just a few years ago). Thank you for the blog hop, I love seeing all these family and farm/garden pictures!

Thanks for hosting Farm Girl Friday! Wow, its so nice to meet so many other farm girls. This farm girl is in the middle of Spring lambing and kidding. There's about 30 babies on the ground so farm and we are two weeks into the season. The blog post that I shared is about how to save a baby lamb or kid that you find limp and cold, almost lifeless. In a situation like this you only have minutes to save a life. There's no time to call a vet. In my post I give the steps necessary to warm the baby and get life saving calories into them, before its too late. I hope your readers feel empowered after reading it. At Joybilee Farm we've been raising sheep, angora goats, and dairy goats for 12 years. We've brought a few animals back from the edge over the years.
Thanks for the opportunity to share my experiences.
