Life With Cornish Chicks Day 13

I can't believe I have had them nearly 2 weeks now. According to everything I have read they have reached 1/4 of their life now assuming they were 1 day old when I bought them. Kind of sad to think of it that way, however I am hopeful because their growth is much slower then I thought it would be. They are still getting feathers and happy as can be. :O) One is still dramatically smaller then the others but that may be the thing that keeps her alive. Yesterday my husband and kiddos spent half the day making me a cute little chicken coop. I still am bringing them inside at night but now they will spend the other 12 hours outside pecking about their pen looking for food. I am sprinkling food on the ground for them 3 times a day and the let them have a free for all for 30 minutes before bed :O) Here is a picture of my coop. I'm excited to see what the future holds for them.

Do you live in a rural or urban area, Melissa? I have always wanted to raise chickens, but they are not allowed in the city limits, sadly :(
Cute! Our kids would love that!

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need: 2 Cups of Sugar 2 Cups of Water 1 Package Sugar Free Jello A candy Thermometer Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li
