While I was sick I got some sad news. My boyfiend called to tell me that one of our chickens was killed by an animal.
It was our "Pickety". She is a beautiful Plymouth Rock Hen. Black and White striped with a bright red comb. She had a "twin" named "Hickety".
I was so sad. I knew Tyler was upset too. He was so sweet to bury her near a flower garden with a large rock.
I'm so thankful for our little farm at Ty's house. We call it "Winter Hollow Farm". It's been a fun experience. I know it sounds funny to be sad about a chicken death, but they are our pets.
I am thankful for all the beauties of nature, and especially the changing of the seasons. Winter is a pretty long season. But nonetheless, beautiful.
I am thankful to have such a wonderful boyfriend that is so good to me, and lets me play in the dirt, plant, and enjoy being a pretend "farmgirl".
We have started planting 100's of bulbs. We added a HUGE garden plot, and a raised "English" garden. I'm excited to see it in the spring. We have a little website, if you would like to see our critters.I am SO lucky!
We will miss you Pickety! Thanks for all the fun this summer hunting grasshoppers, and playing in the yard!
