Chicken scratches....

Today was the only sunny day we have had for almost 2 weeks.  So you know what that means?  Time to get hay. So I dashed out of the office at five, and headed to Jackson to my favorite place to shop,

  What a great business these folks do! I spend a LOT on feed there, plus they have a good selection of vet supples. They have a very good selection of all animal feeds. They have fencing and feeding equipment and hardware. They offer a nice line of tack and western wear for all ages.  And in the spring they offer several varieties of chicks for sale.  OMG, I know some of you may understand what a challenge it is to go in and buy hay when you REALLY want a box full of new peeps! What is it about those little fluffs that is so exciting to me?  Anyway, today I just bought hay....

...but I had to stop to admire these three lovely hand crafted chicken coops! I said to myself  "I have to take some pics of these for Rachel to see, she'll go wild!"

This was the largest and is about 4' x 8'....MAN, wouldn't this look cute in my yard?
I mean in RACHEL's yard!???  :)

I am fascinated by the workings of such things, I have to look at all the hardware and open and close all the doors...these all have hinged lids for the nest boxes, the wire work is nicely finished and the craftsmanship is very fine. So this time, I came home with four bales of hay. Next week? Who knows? I'll keep you posted!

All is well at FiddleSong Farm...


  1. OH MY GOSH!!! HOW CUTE!!! Your yard or mine, they are sure adorable. And I know what you mean about those fluffy babies. When we're driving in downtown Oakley I point out the window of the feed store to the kids. If the heat lamp in on in the window, we know what that means! ;)

  2. Beautiful coops!!! And, I too know what you mean about the fluffy little peeps. We kept visiting Tractor Supply year before last. Chicks, duckilings, AND rabbits!! How could I not take the kids and go?!? We now have a rabbit thanks to all those trips.
