Here's a good example of 'Birds of a Feather Flocking Together'! My poor girls didn't know what to think of the cold.
It was a bit comical.
I've been terribly worried about them since the 'cold snap' we've had here in NW Indiana. I worry about their toes, and their sweet flappies.
Flappies is my word for wattles.
Aaron and I went out to give them some love and encouragement.
I wonder if Stubs feet ache more in this cold weather. I know my hips do.
And then there's Helen. Poor sweet humble Helen. I've noticed her limping more since it's gotten cold. Time for some Chicken Spa therapy.
We promptly brought her into the 'Poultry L'amore' Salon (also known as my kitchen)
Her one bad eye concerns me. It's been looking like this for a while.
I gave her lots of love and cuddling. Chickens love cuddling. It's true. Not many people know this fact, but then again, I am the Chicken Whisperer.
She loved every minute of her time inside, and drank lots of warm water. I begged Glenco to let me keep her in the house. Well, I begged him to let me keep them all in the house.
He said no.
I can't imagine why he wouldn't want ten fat hens in the house.
I mean, I've been living here for 20 years. What's ten more?
Rejuvenated by her spa experience, Helen lost no time in having a talk with Aaron about puberty, kindness and clean living. That bird doesn't have a selfish bone in her body.
Since I told you about my chilly chickens, I thought it appropriate to share a recipe for...
wait for it.....
wait for it....
My wit even surprises me. Seriously.
Here's the first of MANY healthy, absolutely delicious recipes.
The eating plan I'm following (I'll share more in the coming weeks) is a balanced program of protein and carbs, and relatively low fat.
This recipe is perfect.
High in fiber (just for you Joycee!), perfect ratio of carbs and protein, and loaded with FLAVOR.
What could be better than a bowl of this deliciousness on a cold, blustery day such as we've had here in NW Indiana?
Ok, well, hot fudge would be, but we're not goin' there.
