I've Heard a Peep

Spring has definitely arrived at Harvest Lane Cottage. Not only do we have flowers coming up everywhere,

we also have the sweet little peeps of baby chicks filling our back porch room. We have 6 little Buff Orpington, Three Rhode Island Red, and One Barred Rock Hen. Why the mix? Because each of my three younger children bought the ones they wanted. My only stipulations were that they buy pullets and take care of them.

Hopefully, they'll all be hens. If not, I guess they'll be supper. Either way, they'll be food. I try to teach the children that farm animals are for food; but, we give them the best life we can while they're here by caring for them well.
Happy Sunday!


  1. What wonderful lessons your children learn! I work with a gal who lives on a farm and her MIL in forever buying something new, last week a llama! Her kids, 7 and 3 1/2 love it!

    Come join the postcard exchange! I bet the kiddos would love it! I alwas send Colorado wildlife for the kids!

    Hugs and happy week to you and your chicks and gang! Anne

  2. Wonderful teaching for your children!

  3. Your flowers are lovely! And oh how I love you're little chicks. In fact, I'm quite envious. This is something I'd love to have around my house. You're babies are lucky children.


Hello! I love it when you all talk back!
Your comments have helped me through the hardest time of my life.
Thank you!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I am undergoing radiation treatments, healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th, and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy.

I'm having a hard time replying to all the comments. Please understand if I do not answer. This is all new to me.

I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, or you need a response, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments. I will try to answer each question and request. It just may take me some time.

Be blessed!
