Home Sweet Coop {Farm Fresh Images}

We are having a Seattle-style heat wave! It's been in the 80s  and is supposed to stay sunny and warm, according to the 7-day forecast. We (I think I speak for all of us Seattleites - except for the majority who probably prefer it cooler! ;) are enjoying every minute of it! 

This is our kiddos' last week of school before summer vacation and each day is brimming with activities. Instead of going stealth on the blog, I thought I'd share a few photos  from home of some simple country joys...

Our weathered coop - which I planned on painting but then was charmed by it's half-painted finish, is how we found it when we moved in...

The gate to the chicken run... (Speaking of "Chicken Run," if you have young-ish kids, that's a cute movie to watch this summer! You'll enjoy it too. ;)

Farm fresh eggs...

Lewis is so full of himself and has no sense of time. His unabashed confidence has won us over. He competes with our lab as the farm watch "dog." To our neighbors - we're so very sorry and thankful that none of you have taken him out yet...

A bright, sunshiny day...

We have moved our seven baby chicks - who are fully feathered out - to one of the horse stalls. I wanted to give them more time to grow before we add them to the coop with our full-grown chickens and rooster. I'm partial to this sweet little silkie...

Thank you for stopping by today!

I hope your week is going well...

  1. How fun is that to have fresh eggs everyday? Your little chicken looks so cute; I love that breed with the fluffy feathers!

  2. They're called silkies and don't they look like they are wearing slippers?! ;) they're not the hardiest and their eggs are small but I think they're adorable. Thank you for stopping by!

  3. Wonderful share today, do you also Bütcher the chickens for meals, or just fair for eggs?
    Love the white going up on the coop, makes a world of difference to your farmhouse life.

    See you soon and those sweet silkies.


  4. I would love to have chickens one day! that silkie is so pretty. I bet y'all eat a lot of eggs.
