Rasing Chickens - Have You Tried it?

Putting on the finishing touches …DSC07936 DSC07949

Shopping for the flock … Porter’s Poultry Place, Garden Valley, Ca (530-333-9129) e-mail: dppkporter@yahoo.com

DSC07914

DSC07924 DSC07921 Darci, explaining about the crown. This was one of her Exhibition Chickens but the crown was not perfect so we get to take her home with us. DSC07926Showing Bill how to dust the “vent” …. mmm, new word understanding for me.

Kati (Darci’s daughter)DSC07920

One of Darci’s Exhibition Chickens, crown not perfect so she gets to come home with us! Woo Hoo - we have a “beauty queen” reject!

At the Porter’s Poultry Place they raise chickens for eggs,breeding, eating, Exhibition Shows and for Kati’s 4-H.

Darci started out just 4 years ago with 6 chickens, and well, you see where she is today. She is a busy mom, busy “chicken lady” , busy wife. But one bit of information about Darci, you can put the lady on a Chicken Ranch but you can not take the Lady out of the Lady! Darci was born and raised at Newport Beach, California, growing up sailing boats. And just to prove it …. you will see a pretty nice boat parked at the Chicken Ranch.

This was a great adventure, driving to Garden Valley, about one hour from where we live. It was a nice introduction to our chicken experience. Darci and Kati are both warm, friendly, and eager to share about the care and types of chicken on their ranch. The whole trip was a delight … and now … “we are in the chicken business … well, at least eggs for breakfast … we are the proud owners of 5 beautiful, all different, chickens!DSC07930

The “girls” new apartment. One is hiding someplace, but they all seem to be pretty happy!

Blogging Woes!

Blogging Woes !! Have you ever been frustrated when things such keep going from bad to worse to unbelieveable? Ugh! Tears! Frustration! I have not posted lately because of a mix-up, or misunderstanding, or just being a novice with computer skills - but since Google took over Blogger (I think that is true) I continually get my two blogs mixed up and not able to sign in. I write to Google, thay send me to "help", my confusion grows, I write back and forth, seek to read more "helps" ..... Well, I finally was able to explain a bit more clearly and the Google team were very nice in their quick response to send me the information I needed and explained it in the simple terms that I needed. So - back to blog posting and no more ughs!, tears, frustrations.

Has anything like this ever happen to you! I really appreciate how Google was persistent in making sure that I had the corect information. Thank you to the Google Team!!
