I have only been blogging for about six months now, but I am considering a break from blogland. Lately, I have found myself straining my brain to find something to post about. I can only say so much about my chickens before my blog becomes completely boring. And to add to my frustration, I am missing my chickens. Sunrise this morning was at 7:12 a.m. I was pulling out of the driveway around 7:25 a.m. On my drive home in the evenings I have to drive with my headlights on because it is already dark. So naturally, I am spending zero time with my birds. Not too long ago Mike got a pair of Buff Orphingtons. Pretty birds, and she was already laying. He also got me some more pigeons. I was down to three, but one did not come back. He brought me four, so I now have six total pigeons. They are pretty birds, but I don't have any new pics. It's hard to get pics when it's dark the entire time I'm home. I love the Christmas holiday, but I hate winter. And the cold weather has settled in for a couple of weeks. Not cold enough for snow, but cold enough that I will now get shocked everytime I touch something metal. >:( I HAVE to say that I was excited when I got home yesterday to find a box in the middle of the living room with a UPS label on it. It was the nest box I won from Pam over at Life on a Southern Farm. It was wonderful craftsmanship. I'm not sure who will be the lucky hen yet. Probably one of the Orphingtons. Either my black one or buff one.
I guess I will leave it up to you guys. Should I stay or should I go? If I quit the blog for a while I will still stick around to read you guys.
