Rural looks like he is a boy. i wish he was a girl, but he is a boy. he started attacking us all, but he dose not attack like rusty dose. i hope next year, Astra is broody and we can hatch another queanington chick. i also hope rural has a good life, and lives as long as he can.

rusty 2

i think rusty was just going though a juvenile stage. i think this because he has stopped attacking my mom and dad. he attacks the turkeys, and two nights ago, the turkeys attacked him, and he bled a little, he is OK.

Cornish rock!

a wile ago, we got ten Cornish rock chicks. do not be confused with Cornish cross chicks. two of them died:c. now, they are so big, even thew they are still chicks. they must be 1-2 pounds already. look up cornish cross chickens, or cornish rock chickens. next time we are getting meat-eaters, we will get ranger chickens, who wont have a heart attack because they are so big. we also will get ranger chickens because cornish rock are not very good at getting to the coop and back, and we take the food out so they cant get to it, and the other chickens are starving in the morning.


about 5 weeks ago – sorry i didn’t post sooner!- we got pekin ducks! we also got Cornish rock chickens- i will post in a wile. at first, we got two ducks, but then we went back to the store and got eleven more ducks, so now we have 13 ducks!the females and a male we can keep over the winter, so we can hatch baby ducklings! we have not seen baby ducklings yet, because the ducks we got were a week old, so we are very excited about hatching baby ducklings!

chicken name!

Astra’s chick has a name now! its name is rural. we think it is a boy, but we hope it is a girl. rural looks just like Astra. i wonder is soaring – eagle had hatched them, they would have looked like her, or gotten some of her magic. soaring – eagle had magic to escape anything! she was a small jersey giant chicken. we think she used her energy to get magic instead of growing


Astra hatched a chick!it is white. it is a green queen- breese chicken cross. or a rusty- queenington cross. we named it a rural- queen. its name is-okay it has been weeks, and i cant think of a name for it! post in the comments what you think it’s name should be!

hummus and radish.


Drain chickpeas over a bowl to reserve the liquid. set them and the reserved liquid aside.

Add lemon juice, tahini, sunny paris, and drained chickpeas. process for 1-2 min and Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add reserved chickpea liquid, 1 tablespoon at a time, through the opening in the funnel and process until the mixture is smooth. The more liquid you add, the thinner the mixture will be.

put on a plate and cut up radish.


The hummus keeps in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
