We enjoy the most beautiful sunsets over the treeline at the top of the back field. Tonight's show was especially peachy on my way down to tuck in the chickens and kittens for the night. Like most days, we're busy with the usual evening routines, and there are always so many things that need doing. I really appreciate how the chickens need one of us every night at dusk to close them in safely for the night - I'm always glad to go down, catch a breath of fresh air and see something lovely, and it's usually when I need it the most that I'm least keen to do it.
In other chicken news, we've been getting 13 eggs for the past couple of days! This is terribly exciting. Also, we are sending Amos Tupper (I) (the gorgeous Easter Egger rooster) off to a new home tomorrow. He's come after Thomas and I when our backs are turned, and I'm concerned that he could seriously hurt one of the boys. I will have none of that. We have two younger roosters, Silver-Laced Wyandottes, which are the last remaining roosters. They can stick around, and if they don't cause any trouble, they're welcome to stay.
