February Favorites + Monthly Egg Count

March 3, 2014


February has been a crazy whirlwind of a month. A few weeks ago, I was hired for a new job and I'm really excited about it. Of course, with a new job comes an entirely new routine, and I'm still working out the kinks. I need to remember to carve little nooks out of my day for all of the things that sustain me, like reading, writing, knitting, gardening, playing with the chickens, and, of course, eating nourishing foods. I've failed with meals lately, eating out more often than not, but I'm ready to focus on this aspect of my life again. Plus, now that it's March, I have an entire garden to grow!

February Egg Count:
  • Starbuck: 9
  • Amelia Pond: 17
  • Seven-of-Nine: 18
  • Milly (started 2/23): 6
Total: 50 Eggs

I don't know what's going on with Starbuck, but she's really dropping the ball. First, she's our largest chicken, but she lays the smallest eggs. Second, I'll see one or maybe two eggs from her at most per week. She's the only one of our girls who won't lay in the nest box, so we often find her eggs in strange and unusual places. My worst fear is that she's eating them, but I have no evidence to support that theory, so I think she's just a lazy layer. She's lucky we're so fond of her.

This Month's Favorites:


  1. Wow, that's a lot of stuff ;) So many good links, but so much work to do :) Happy March!

  2. Loved your links, especially the what media does to women and the 19 things :)
    I have 4 issues of Taproot as well and I have yet to read them. I should really make the time I guess :)
