November light




Poor Tess (one of my hens) is molting in a big way...she is literally half the hen she once was. There are feathers everywhere! and no eggs....it was dark at 4 PM today and the girls had put them selves to roost for the night by 4 :15. I know it's normal and the lack of light this time of year makes me tired as well, but I've been missing my sunny side up's for breakfast. Time to get creative with the oatmeal :)
Hope you have a lovely weekend!

  3. Belinda...I think the honey idea is right on!

    Barbara- molting is normal-albeit weird right before it's getting quite cold...and chickens are up and down with the sun...less sun = less eggs, not to mention my featherless friend needs to put her energy into making new ones so the eggs get the back burner for awhile (bummer for me)

  5. maybe you could crochet her a little jumper so her bum doesn't get cold while she waits for her new feathers to come?

  6. I love these photographs together! The light, colors, pattern and textures are really beautiful in the one of Tess. The transition to shorter days is a bit tough, and semmingly abrupt, but I do love the cozy light and warmth of my home at this time of year. Best . . .
