Our New Homestead Coop


We just added another little hobby chicken coop to our pen.  We have a variety of chickens and age groups here at Hibiscus House.  The Ole Folk Chickens are dwindling in numbers.  We love them and have had them for years.  They spend most of their days free ranging, eating, and resting.  The One year old pullets in the pen with the Red Barn Coop and this newer batch about two months old in this Homestead Coop.

Predators have had a field day recently.  We've said good bye to Pumpkin, and several others.  Gaston has become injured and is enjoying his life out in the soft grass in his days.  He has done his job well, but age and injury are taking a toll on him.

Cora Lee and Pat the Hammer, two of our oldest, are still laying but enjoying the free range life now as well.  You have to keep replenishing to keep a steady supply of chickens for the wonderful eggs.  Today"s Chicken Talk is about our new inexpensive coop from Tractor Supply.

Allergy Sufferers What Can We Do?



My favorite season of the year has always been Spring!  Oh, how I love the beginnings of new life, growth, and color!  Gardening and being outdoors are things that make me happy!  However, this time of year can reek havoc with allergy prone individuals, such as myself. What's a Spring loving person to do?  The pollen this year has been the worse I've seen in many years!  

In a Pinch Hot Wing Seasoning



Today, I was so surprised to find that we were out of Texas Pete.  That is a hot sauce, for those of you from other parts of the country, that have never heard of it.  We use a lot of it in this area.  We had never ran out of it before!  Oh, the shame!

The wing sections are in the oven and what am I going to do?
