The 4H county office is holding a photography contest for 4Hers. Mackenzie is too young to *compete* but she will get a participation ribbon and her photos will be on display.
There were different categories- we entered the people one (we submitted the one of her dad from a couple weeks ago) and the animal one.
Here is the one we entered-
Here are a few others that were under consideration-
btw, the chicken nuggets laid their first eggs. :) Have a great night- God Bless!

Mackenzie and I got pecked on Thursday, Jeff had a near miss yesterday, and little Cambrie got pecked tonight. Before we could reach her, she stuck her finger in the coop and they got her. It broke the skin and made her bleed. We doctored her up inside and went back out and scolded those meaners. She did enjoy that part.
See her holding her little finger out...
Check out our wild growing grapes!
Finally, our chickens produced! Wu-hu!
We got 9 eggs! 7 from our second group of hens and 2 from the first. They are the same age/ breed (except the first group has 2 Americanas. The Americanas lay colored eggs). I think the difference is the coop. The second group live in the coop we built, which has covered nest areas.We are in the process in building another one so hopefully the original hens will feel more comfortable laying. The 2 dirty eggs (one brown and one green) are from the original hens. which laid them on the ground.
We went inside and ate them for breakfast. They have a stronger taste than store bought eggs (the yolk).
double yoke- twins!
