Spring brought with her baby chicks to our farm!! We are thrilled to welcome a number of babies and some pullets. Those of you that know me well know that I love my chickens and their eggs. Our choice of breeds are heirloom or specialty rare breeds. We love the beauty and differences in appearance and personalities that these birds offer us. Not to mention the color assortment of eggs! We expanded our chicken coop to a really big space for our birds. Our eggs are starting to come in by a dozen a day and more expected to start laying in the fall. We have been lucky enough to now be working with The All American General Store in Seymour here in CT to sell our eggs. So if you are in the area pop into the General Store for some home grown with love chicken eggs! Of all colors

Next news, shearing is done!! All the critters have their winter coats off so I have been washing and spinning fleeces like crazy. Now Im spinning them and listing them in my etsy shop as I go along. take a peek www.Pamsfiber.etsy.com I have also been weaving pillow toppers. They too are listed in my Etsy shop.
