Life With Cornish Chickens 6 Weeks Old!

I can't believe my little chickens are six weeks old today! It hasn't been nearly as rocky of  a road as I thought it would be either. They are all still alive and thriving and even the little one is finally starting to catch up yay! It should only be another 6-10 weeks before they start laying eggs I can't wait to see how big they are. They are getting pretty big probably 3-5 pounds a piece now and funny as can be. If you have ever thought about chickens I really encourage it! When they start laying eggs we should average about 18 eggs a week which is about what we go through. No more Walmart eggs in this family will be a world of taste difference. If these ones don't get to big I may get some more babies.

It was feeding time :O) their favorite time of the day.lol

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 :)
