|Star shaped sugar cookies going in the oven.|
It's almost here...and this year I said I wasn't having the gathering here this year because of my broken foot. But I caved and am having a few guests. All bringing many things. Knowing people are alone on a holiday is one of my buttons. I can't help it. So here we go. Cookies baked, peach and green chili chutney will be made today to top the lamb burgers on the grill. I am threatening to make a blueberry pie. :-)
|"Bobbles" all feather out with a big rose comb!|
|"MysterE" has no comb.|
It seems that 2 of our Silkie chicks are roosters. Their combs have bloomed: one did not. "Bobbles" the non neurotypical chick with tics has grown a comb. The other little rooster is posturing, and confronting all hens to show them he is the boss. Bobbles doesn't care about dominance, just surviving. "MysterE" has not grown a comb, and appears to be a hen. She is the most talkative hen of the bunch. Constantly muttering to herself, and anyone who will listen. The bantam buff Cochins hop on my lap every time I am out feeding. They are the sweetest of the flock.
|Kale and chick peas have been a favorite from our garden.|
Happy 4th to you all, whatever your plans may be.
Thanks for reading.
