We recently bought four new chickens. They’re not quite full grown, but should be laying in the near future. Two of the chickens are Polish. I’ve never heard of Polish chickens before and even though they apparently aren’t the best layers I insisted on getting them because 1) I’m part Polish!! and 2) they’re a little different looking than the normal chicken. They have have what looks like hair on top their heads.
Above are pictures of the all the chickens we got. The all black one is Polish, and the black and red one at the top is a Polish one as well. We’re keeping them separated from the rest of the flock for a few weeks so they can get a little bigger and get used to the place.
We’ve got a lot of fruit ripening right now – dragon fruit, pineapples, mangoes, starfruit (we’re loaded!), bananas, berries, and lemons. We’ll be selling some of the dragon fruit and starfruit shortly. I’m going to try making limoncello again with our lemons. We have the perfect lemons for this, Meyer lemons, but last time I made it, I think there was too much pith in the rind still and it just did’t taste that good. So this time I’ll take it slower, and see how it comes out. I’ll keep you posted as to my efforts on that one.
