Life with the Girls

Anyone that knows me knows I’ll tell you everything !

You’re thinking everything well yeah pretty much EVERYTHING!
My mom told me I should keep a few things to myself but somehow that never stuck with me…So basically if I’ve experienced it, I want to share it, if I love it I want you love it  and if I’ve seen it of course I’m want to tell you all  about it so here we go…😍

The whole chicken raising thing is kind of a crazy story that I’m kind of proud of it…I was asked to be on the ‘Hot Chicks’ Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo in December of 2016. This is a  group of women that buy champion pens of Chickens, raised by kids in Future Farmers of America to enable them scholarships for college… Great cause right? My initiation into Hot chicks was really tough, tough in the fact that we meet each holiday season at Tony’s  ( Houston’s premier 5 star restaurant) and have a lavish lunch and TONS of good Champagne and then write a check!  While Suffering through this amazing feast, I grabbed my iPhone and ordered a chicken coop on Amazon… Woohoo! Chicken Farming, here I come!!!

MY INITIATION PURSE AS A MEMBER OF HOT CHICKS… Don’t leave home without it!

MY FIRST COOP… Super cute, right?

THE FIRST GIRLS…

I started with 6 Bantam Silkies….Silkie Bantams were frist documented by Marco Polo while visiting Asia in the 13 century.  These Bantams (meaning small, like pony to horse) probably made their way west via the Silk Route… 

Feeling super-lucky to have such special chicks, they needed 🌟 MOVIE STAR  names…. Farah Faucet, Sophia Loren, Gwyneth Paltrow, Olivia DeHaveland, Reese Witherspoon, Audrey Hepburn….. Because these chicks are super small ( they’re not able to be sexed before adopting.  Bad news:  Audrey Hepburn turned into Rooster Cogburn, when he/she crowed at the age of 6 months. He now lives with my Colorado horse farrier, Rocky.🌻

The starter coop was outgrown super fast! So, off to the internet again and **poof** another build-it-yourself project was delivered to my front door. You know this kind of project. The instructions tell you it’s ‘simple to build’ and then it takes you 2-3 days with a helper. I had to paint it to match our house… Duh!

THE NEW COOP!

🌷Spring finally has arrived in Houston, and I had to have some new chicks…  Introducing 2 Belgium D’uccles, Vivien Lee and Dakota Johnson and 2 new Blue Silkies, the Olsen twins, Mary Kate and Ashley!

Who doesn’t love baby chicks in ‘the’ orange box !

But as you know it ‘takes a village’… I am so gratful to Brenda Love and LOVE ADVERTISING… they basically have done all the work to make me look good and make this blog happen! THANK YOU!

  1. Having mastered the vastness of the Taobao mega-resource,
    I discovered the advantages of the Aliexpress online trading platform.
    This site is a division of Taobao, but for small wholesalers and wholesalers.
    Why Aliexpress is so good, and what are its shortcomings.

    https://lite.bz/vi3kI8
    The first and greatest advantage of this Internet resource is the absence of intermediaries from both the Russian and Chinese sides.
    That is, you can make purchases on Aliexpress yourself by paying with a card.
    The second advantage is contacting the seller directly, you can ask questions about the product and the timing of the collection of the parcel.
    And of course, you will be given a track – the number of the postal item, so that you can track the movement of the parcel.
    The third significant advantage of Aliexpress is the language of the site – it is English, which makes it very easy to translate and search for goods.
    Of course, those who are not sure of their English can use the on-line google translator or another, the names must be written in the search line in English, even if your page is translated into Russian.
    The fourth advantage is the possibility of free delivery to Russia. This is a very nice little thing, the products can be sorted by selecting this “Free shipping” condition under the search bar.
    The fifth advantage of this small-scale wholesale resource is that you can find a product that is sold for 1 piece, and there is no need to buy extra units of the product.
    To do this, you need to pay attention to the indication of how many units of goods are available for one order, for example: the price costs 5.2 $ / piece and the minimum number of units of goods for one order is not indicated, in another case it is indicated as follows – 3 piece / lot 1.91 $ / piece , that is, the cost of one order is 5.72 dollars,
    and the price of a unit is 1.91 dollars, you must purchase 3 units. Another convenience is the indication of the price of the item in US dollars.
    It is very convenient and understandable, there is no need to rack your brains with transfers from yuan into dollars – rubles. Also, money is debited from the card at the rate set by your bank.
