Fairy Chickens and Rogue Baby Bulls!

 :

Welcome to The Farm! I’ve got a lot of pictures to share today, so let me explain them!

Some of these are from when we still had roosters. I won’t make that mistake again. Have you ever seen a rooster make love to a hen? It is not a pretty sight and OU Boy said Never again will one of our hens have to do that. Plus some of them are just plain mean. You don’t need a rooster to get eggs, just to fertilize them and turn them into chicks. But we don’t eat meat and we have enough hens so no roosters! Are they spoiled? Oh hell yeah! They will come and go at will as they are free range, but never leave the safety of the yard. They come inside and look around and leave. They get along with dogs, cows and baby bulls that get into the yard. Everyone is kind. The dog has a kind of boyfriend/girlfriend relationship with a bull and one of our hens laid her first egg and immediately went and stood in the middle of the unpaved road, waiting to commit suicide. She just wasn’t going to do that again I assume.

They will come sit in your lap and eat all of your dinner too! These are Rhode Island Red and Plymouth Rock. We have some Orpingtons also, but they are a bit more skittish.

Most of the time they are parked on a porch chatting or gossiping about the cows. They all have names and yes sometimes they dress up as fairies. They will also jump on your float in the pool and just chill.  The ducks are gone because ducks are just messy and nasty. Even the chickens wouldn’t talk to them.

If only humans got along so well!

Fairy House Cooking by Liza Gardner Walsh

Product Details

The fairies (and kids) are invading the kitchen. Following up on the popular Fairy House and Fairy Garden handbooks, Liza Gardner Walsh presents a new dimension in fairy-themed activities—Cooking! 

In this delightful book, there are lots of delicious recipes, such as pretty fairy muffins, tiny confetti cookies, candied violets, and many more. There are also recipes for tiny snacks meant for fairies, and fun recipes for treats to leave out for the animal friends of fairies.
Complementing the recipes will be fun sidebars of fairy lore and guides for hosting fairy-themed teas and birthday parties.
Simple steps and easy-to-follow recipes help kids and parents make yummy food for parties, friends, or just for fun!

Fairy House and Fairy Garden are two of my favorite books. In a house full of fairy lovers, we never miss an opportunity to use our imagination and play like the fairies!

In the newest book, with help, the kids can try their hands at Toadstool Cupcakes, Toadstool Meringues and Marzipan Mushrooms,Pixie Dust Popcorn or Pretzel Fairy Wands and much more.

The photos in the book are a hit. Not staged, just kids having fun and making a mess while pretending they are fairies and having a bit of a party.

The books are aimed at stretching the imagination in the out-of-doors and now we have some tasty and quite easy treats to take with us on our adventures!

I am in favor of all things imaginary and I thought this was one of the most charming books I’ve seen on the topic.

Expected Release Date is May of 2017.
