Our chickens are seven weeks old! I took a quick video to celebrate. As you can see, they are healthy, messy, noisy and happy! We have a mix of four breeds, thirteen chicks in total. The varieties we have are: Blue/Black/Splash Copper Maran, Welsummer, Black Ameraucana and Heritage Barred Plymouth Rocks. The chickens are fed organic and we are doing our best to raise them naturally.
A dreamer at heart, Charlotte has an emotional affinity with nature and spends much of her time outdoors. You will most often find her in the garden, tending to the animals or picking wild plants for her concoctions. In the kitchen, she always has projects on the go; brewing, fermenting, baking, cooking and remedy making. Prior to living the homesteading dream, she was the Director of Marketing for an innovative communications company, SSi Micro. With fourteen years with this company, she grew departments, managed large projects, organized people, and ran the purchasing and logistics department. Charlotte is happiest when she has her fingers in all kinds of pots, creating a little bit of disorder while making beautiful things.
