For The Chicken In A Tough Spot
Even if you've made some not-so-great choices, even if you're not sure what to do next, even if you feel totally stuck, there is always a path to safety. Sometimes that path is simply squawking for help, and that's okay! Squawk if you need us; we're here for you. -- Chicken Little
Here's What's Happening At Good Spirits Farm
Not all of farm life is joyful. We lost a hive of bees, which is a bummer. RIP little sweet (kinda) bees.
Similarly, we had to do minor surgery on a chicken's foot this week. The nearest chicken vet is two hours, so we're learning to do what we can. The patient is recovering nicely, and I'm now an expert on wrapping a chicken foot one-handed while my patient tries to wiggle/flap/peck her way free.
We are working on transitioning all of our lawns from grass to clover. We spread the clover seed this week, so now it's all about encouraging it to overtake the grass.
