Kismet brought Hazel and Myrtle for a visit in January 2008. We adopted them, making a home in our back yard, which is where this blog begins. Betty, Lulu and Zelda are our new family of hens!

Morning! Day Two in Henville
So this morning is hot. Dang, I always forget how incredibly hot and sticky Austin can be and it is indeed this weekend. The girls were waiting at their coop door at 6:15 am. I intended to sleep in, but woke at 5:00 am. Lord!
I got them fresh food, water and went on a snail hunt, which brings me great joy! Their nice sharp beaks have no trouble devouring these abundant, slimy suckers.
Off to the Blanco Lavender Festival today, so the girls are hanging alone. I have to admit it gets pretty hot for a few hours around noon on their side of the house, but they will be fine.
I forgot to mention that I am counting on some eggs today.
