Anyone else having trouble getting onto Dogster?

We had snow again after beautiful spring weather for the last week.

Hubby is getting stronger...but still needing lots of rest. He went and helped with a Lure Coursing event that our local Kennel Club put together. He came home and slept mostly from 4pm til morning.

So, I found out about an annual "Chicken Stock" in a neighboring city coming up in May. Sounds Like I will be attending so I can look at chickens!!!!!!! Hubby said he'd come with me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hubby's recovery time is 2-4 weeks according to the nurse. He's still swollen and in pain but on pain meds managing it...as well as icing.

I did some more yard clean up yesterday. Plants are starting to poke their heads up. I planted two dwarf apple trees dancing Honeycrisp and a Crimson (its pollinator)

I've had difficulty getting logged into Dogster lately. hughughughughug Thinking of you all

Hubby had surgery today. Everything went well. Kidney stints are out and he is feeling good on the pain meds. Trying to keep him resting, hydrated and walking a little.

Yes, I'm very excited about having chickens. I'm buying the Eglu Cube.

I've looked at other coops but by the time I buy all the equipment needed to keep them warm, water/feeders, a run, etc. It costs more and I don't have to worry about a heat lamp starting a fire, stringing an electrical cord out to the coop, and I don't get the ease of cleaning, etc.

Raccoons are naughty! We have skunks in our area but they stay out of our yard because of the dogs. The squirrels can barely get in....but when they do....its very entertaining.

You should check out the coops I'm looking at. Google Eglu Cube. They also have walk-in predator proof runs.

Wow...90 already! That's incredible!

I tweaked my back yesterday cleaning yard and house. Pain! in more ways than one.

So, I've been looking into getting chickens! It won't be for awhile but I'm excited. We have had lots of earwigs eating all my plants. I can't stand them and would love chickens eating them laugh out loud In my research of chicken breeds...I've decided on 5 to rotate through. In no particular order:

1. Black Australorps
2. Buff Orpingtons
3. Speckled Sussex
4. Dominiques
5. Ameraucanas

They tend to be described as the most docile/friendly, poor flyers, great for backyards since they are quiet and easy on gardens, good with confinement or free ranging, cold hardy, and several are excellent layers in winter.

I have my coop picked out. Its from the UK. It's called an Eglu Cube. Double glazed design makes it warm in the winter and cool in the summer...so no need to have a heat lamp. It's easy to clean and easy access to nesting area. Simple and easily moved.

Hubby wants to wait til next year, which is fine so I can start getting the set up.

Hersey almost caught a squirrel this morning. They ran into each other. The squirrel raced up on the garage roof, turned and stomped his feet and chattered fiercely at Hersh laugh out loud

65 degrees here and lovely.

Forgive me if I've told ya'll already...but Hubby had a CAT Scan last week and shows his kidney function is good and cancer tumors are shrinking...even in his lymph nodes happy dance So we have scheduled surgery to remove the kidney stints...which is what is causing him pain. Doc says it's time to take them out...but may need them again sometime down the road.

Does anyone remember Winnie? Standard Poodle friend on Dogster...she's looking at retiring here in Pocatello. She called me yesterday and we chatted for quite awhile.

Hope all is well with everyone hughughughughug

55 degress yesterday. We were able to get some yard work done.

We had dinner with friends and went to the symphony. A fun Quebec group played Celtic folk songs as the symphony backed them up. They were so good. It wore hubby out but he enjoyed it.

I hope everyone is having a nice early spring. hug
