Like With Cornish Chickens 4 Weeks Down!

I can't believe it has been 4 weeks now! Glad to say they are all doing amazing still. They are getting so big, but I don't think will reach 40 pounds any time soon thank goodness. I am still limiting their food and started throwing in food scraps for them to forage off of. They aren't really a fan of food products from my house but LOVE the little yellow flowers that grow on the weeds around here. My kids love to pick them and feed them to them. We will be heading out of town this weekend and I really hope they are ok while we are gone. I bought two large water dispensers so that will leave them with 4 quarts of water for the two days we are gone. That should be good since one usually lasts them 3 days. I also bought an automatic cats feeder that runs on batteries :O) that way they can't eat non stop and run out of food I will set it to give them an exact amount 4 times a day. Of course what everyone actually comes for :OP the pictures.
Chicken A  nice strong legs and almost all her feathers yay!

This is my big girl!

The little one is still WAY behind :/ not sure why I hope she is ok.

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

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 :)

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 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 After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …
