A New Endeavor … ?

Maybe … but for me, it starts with books – so, I’ve just ordered a few:

I’ve always said that someday I want a hobby farm … not a lot of animals, but definitely chickens, a couple of pigs, goats, and maybe a cow.

We’ll start with chickens … so starts the research phase: Building a great coop, food, learning about their diseases/illness, types of chickens, etc.  It’s not that I’m egg-crazy, but I do like the idea of organic … and the Neo’s will love them, I’m sure (… the eggs – not the chickens!)

Now that the last of our Neo pups have joined their new families, I have a little more free time.  And with my kiln loaded and running … it’s time to research.

When the time comes, I’ll start with standard, Michigan-hardy chickens, but … aren’t they cute?  Smile


About claytonhill

Artisan of beautiful and functional art, handmade in our glass studio. All items one of a kind due to the nature of our medium. A little about me: As the mother of four children, multiple four-legged 'children', wife and an ER nurse ... I've always found pleasure in pursuing creative outlets. My current 'hobby' is kiln-formed glass. As I never do anything 'half-way' ... my husband and I are really enjoying this medium. Other hobbies have included/include stained glass, quilting, knitting, wine making, candles - oh, and a brief trial of the ancient Ukranian art of etching designs on blown eggs ... don't ask. :) You can view my on-line glass store at www.chneos.etsy.com
