Life with Cornish Chicks Day 17

So happy to say they are doing great. Although they are looking pretty ugly right now as they lose all their fluff and get in their big chicken feathers. They don't seem to be growing ridiculously fast or anything maybe my less then standard methods are helping them to develop more strongly. They are stay in they box in my kitchen closet at night then outside about 10 hours a day. Even though according to traditional keeping methods they should be being kept at 80 degrees right now they have been just fine at temperatures as low as 40 degrees. We do have an escape artist though :OP the biggest one can jump and "fly" just a big and manages to fit through the top line of the fence. They are actively seeking food which is awesome although still try to live in the food bin so I take it out most of the day and just sprinkle some about.

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)
