Weekend and Happy New Year!

There's a strange emptiness in the house with the Christmas trees gone.
Funny how you get so used to the fullness they provide.
I'm also trying to re-train myself on where the coat rack is {back in it's original spot}.
.....this could take a week or two.

Happy New Year to you all, and I want to say welcome and a heartfelt "thank you" to all of the followers who have found us recently.
We are so grateful.

Have you set any New Year's resolutions?
I've helped the Cobble Hill Farm animals set theirs:
Oliver  - less barking.
Emerson - less snoring.
Jackson - less terrorizing of the sister, less hanging from the curtains and climbing up the tallest part of the chair just to show off your claws, less stealing money and less relocating my shoes around the house.
Cait - less fits when you don't get your way {p.s. the biting does in fact hurt}.
The Chickens - more eggs please.

The egg production is picking up, however, and it's a big however......we should be getting more than we are receiving.
16 girls who lay {in theory} once every 26-28 hours = 16 eggs every other day.
Hmmm.....I'm getting 9 - 12 eggs every other day.
I know that we're short 1 blue and the rest browns but I haven't yet figured out who we're missing them from.

I hope your Holidays were safe and happy and I wish you all happiness and good health in 2012!!

Happy New Year!

I very much like the animal's resolutions... but good luck with Jackson's! We just watched Chicken Run the other night and it made me think... Perhaps your girls are so busy planning their escape they aren't laying? ;)

Thanks for the wonderful comments! Sue - they have a heated waterer.....and flat panel heaters.....and warm breakfasts. The only thing they're missing is scarves. :) Thanks for the thought though!!
