We Are Deep In the Heart of Texas

Nomadic seasons of farming adventures with nature thrown in to include; a pinch of family, snippets of friends, counting our blessings, paying IT forward, home school, and the spicy things I decide to rant about.

I love my life: repost from ebay

I LOVE MY LIFE: met another (saenzmom)

Posted Jun-14-08 20:16:39 PDT Updated Jun-14-08 20:19:39 PDT
Animal enthuist (sp). It's funny how life works out and comes back in a full circle. 6 weeks ago; I met a farmer and fell in love with his birds; peacocks, guinea fowl, ducks, geese and 3 gorgeous dogs. I went there to buy hay for my baby goats.
.
My neighbor took me to meet him and MY GOODNESS. I was in heaven free-ranging birds everywhere. I noticed he had eggs laying everywhere and my neighbor and her daughter started picking up eggs. (this embarassed me because he did not give permission) So, he and I continued talking with those two zipping around picking up more eggs. (he gave them the eggs)
So, I paid for the hay and my neighbor took the hay back.
.
I told the farmer, I would like to buy from him in the future. I also noticed he only had one lone hen. I asked him if she was sitting and hatching. To which he replied, she is the only chicken I have.
.
Really I said, when my new hatching are older I will bring a rooster and a few pullets. Well today I made good my promise. I introduced my husband and boys to the farmer and inquired about guinea chicks and told him I would like to "buy" a dozen or more. He then told me; "I will give you all the guineas you want as soon as they hatch."
.
How cool is that? He also took us to see young pheasants. He has three peaheans that recently hatched. He promised to let me know when the peahens mother started bringing them out to call so my boys could see them. I LOVE MY LIFE, I LOVE MY NEIGHBORS.
One good deed always begats another when done with pure heart.

Also, I know now two neighbors who love birds as much as I do. I have a common bond with people I have never met. And from talking to each of them; we value the same things in life; simple honest and kind living.

My mother had peacocks and a lot of exotic birds, one even layed green eggs, light green that is. I think peacocks are so beautiful and the place must of been phenomenal - I know what you mean handling 243 acres- wow!

MUFFY, I just love peeps and chicks. I hope this starts a wonderful lasting friendship. Hisamij, Auracanas and Americanas lay blue green eggs. Morans lay dark brown eggs. A chickens ear lobe color determines the SHELL color of their eggs. Weird but true. I could not imagine that letys. WOW is right

ear lobe ? ok, learning some more tonite ! I did not know they had ears ? I buy brown eggs at the store...ones that say the chicken was not caged...seems the others are too thin and make me sick when I eat them...the ones that roam have thicker shells...the brown is just a choice...

Hisam, The eggshell color for the aruacana or americana depends on the rooster. If his breed lays white eggs then it will be blue shelled, if brown eggs then it will be green. Egg shell color has nothing to do with taste. Free range free cage chickens are treated better with less stress. Eggshells are great for your garden honey. THANKS and HUGS to you too, Hula.

For businesses that operate not only web stores, but brick and mortar retail outlets, it's important to be sure that stock can be controlled centrally, and that orders taken through stores can be managed by the same system as used in the website. That means that it's simple to see what needs to be done, what orders must be filled, and to manage schedules, deliveries, and other tasks. Web shop providers are available that can give you control over multiple outlets at once. For smaller businesses, however, this feature would be unnecessary. Learn more with List Easy
