Chicken Nest Box Giveaway and Worms

Hey, do you have chickens? Don't you think they deserve some quality nest boxes? I mean after all you are eating their children, the least you could do is give them some fab new nest boxes in return. Show your chickens you appreciate their contributions by entering Life on a Southern Farm's awesome contest for a chance to win a new 2 hole chicken nest box.

Speaking of chickens, I bet GAFarmWoman's chickens would have loved to been at my house last night! After a heavy, steady rain all evening I tromped through standing water and walked up to the back porch to see this.

Earthworms! Lots of earthworms climbing up the side of our mobile home to escape the mighty flood of ankle deep proportions no doubt. "Get to the roof!" they were probably yelling to each other..if in fact earthworms could yell. Then I looked at the flooded backyard through the still falling rain and wondered if they knew something I didn't.

The sun is peeking through the clouds today. I hope the earthworms can crawl down as well as they crawled up, otherwise there is no doubt several dozen baking earthworms on my roof right now. If my ladder was taller maybe I could save them but alas, I am too vertically challenged to reach; as ineffective as FEMA. Afraid you are on your own earthworms, watch out for the birds.

Clicking on pictures will make them bigger.

I didn't know they could climb up something like that! Learn something new everyday.

I didn't know they could climb either!! I think I learn something new every day.

Jennifer, I wanted to thank you for your email, I have not had time to reply. I am going to write up a blog post too, in relation. Thank you!

Sorry for two posts! I still have not gotten back to twitter or Facebook. I am considering not persuing the MySpace. See...not enough time already. First things first.

The robins around our little suburban plot are always busy on the sidewalks and driveways after a heavy rain. Poor little wormies! I even found one swimming around the bottom of Rosie's water bowl the other day.
