Raising Cornish Rock Cross Hens For Eggs-Day 1

I went to the feed store today to get some items and they had chickens. Growing up we always had chickens and never had issues raising them. I was unaware of this particular breed until I bought them and then the lady behind the counter said something I had never heard before "never leave them with feed more then 12 hours a day or they will explode" Ummmm....ok that I must admit was a little scary to me. So when I arrived home I got to googling and I must admit found nothing reassuring about the future of my cute little fuzzy babies I had just purchased. So now my goal is even getting them to a healthy age where they may lay eggs. If I can get them to that I have found there seems to be hope of keeping them alive. So here I am to share my journey with you day by day as long as mother nature will let me.

I'm so unsure about what to do we never used any kind of heat for our chicks growing u but I don't want to kill them either so they are staying in the house to avoid the chill right now. I have water in there at all times but I am only putting the feeder in for 15 minutes every 3 hours during the day right now. At night only water. Hopefully this limit will help them grow slowly and not live their lives with their face in the feed bowl. So heres to hoping :OP in the mean time here is a cute picture for today. One of them must be younger then the others it has less little feathers.

30 Day Beach Body Challenge- Day 3 #30dayfitness

Here we are at day 3, now unfortunately I am to sick to work out today but I wanted to make sure that I shared the information with you on how to do these exercises so that everyone could easily get their's done. I will catch up as I can, may even try to add extra to the days once I feel better. For today it is 50 burpees and 50 kick down crunches. If you don't know how to do these make sure to scroll down for directions! You will also see why with the flu these aren't doable.lol HOW TO DO A BURPEE!

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 :)
