Double S Farms Chickens and a Giveaway

Effie
I have never raised chickens before and to be honest, never thought of them as all that interesting.

That is until my sister, started raising chickens a few years ago.
  
A couple of days old.

I must admit that I was shocked that they arrived in the mail.
They were so cute and fluffy.
Every week, when went over for dinner, we would watch and see how quickly they grew.


Before we knew it, they were almost full-grown.


Sometimes they got a bit dirty and needed a bath....


But we always enjoyed their fresh eggs.


 Now my sister is raising a new batch of chickens.  They are growing quickly and get along well with the older chickens.

All of my sister's chickens are free range chickens and have the run of the backyard.
Which leads me to the following giveaway:


There is a wonderful, new book out about Free Range Chicken Gardens.

To celebrate the new book, the publisher, Timber Press, is having a giveaway with a chicken-related prize.

Check out their contest page:

Oh my, that first shot of that chicken face is priceless! A face only a mother could love. Hey Noelle, could you do me a favor and make a note of my new blog address? My old one was deleted due to someone else's fraud. Grrrr!

I've been keeping chickens for a year now. I've been gardening for 45 years. These two "hobbies" go together like bread and butter!
