First Light is for the Birds!!

     Many months ago I began this annoying whine to The Romanian begging him for a miniature pony. I grew up with horses so I figured a small one would be no big deal. My Mom immediately said NO! Needless to say I haven't lived at home for many years and she had no say.  However Christmas came and went and there was no pony under the tree nor in the field. So after a few sad laps around the house The Romanian suggested chickens!! His thought I would be against that so much I would drop the pony thing, but I loved the idea. Once the snow FINALLY melted and humans and dogs alike ventured back into nature we began plotting the chicken area. We decided on a large area in the back garden next to the existing veggie garden. The Romanian build a gorgeous coop, the likes you would see in Nantucket, we got our hens and one rooster and there began our farm. I call myself a Sunday farmer and  I love to take care of the chickens. Although, I have to say there are days when I get home from a client and I'm wearing Prada shoes and a Max Mara outfit feeding them and cleaning the coop. It's becomes a little to much like a bad reality show. Ahh Green Acres....
