Welcome to Cranky Puppy Farm!

This blog belongs to two Gen X-er's smackdab in downtown Kansas City where we've been renovating and decorating two old Victorians built in the 1890's. Our life is filled with 3 demanding Pomeranians (1 of them cranky, of course), honking cars, noisy neighbors and the hustle and bustle of city life but we dream of the day when we can move to our 40-acre farm and hear nothing but the wind and the cows next door. Until then, we're chronicling our triumphs and mishaps here as we try to garden and preserve on 2 city lots, raise chickens, and learn all those things we should have learned from our grandparents. Welcome to our world - we hope you'll stay awhile!

Fakin' It

Friday, October 07, 2011

I wish the ladies would recognize all the hard effort that J. and I put into building those b-yootiful nest boxes by actually laying their eggs in them and not on the floor.  I thought maybe they might need a hint, so I bought a fake wooden egg from MyPetChicken and placed it lovingly in the box.  It looks unbelievably realistic, including little speckles just like a real egg.

Guess what?  It actually works.  We only had one egg on the floor this week and the rest have been in the box.  I guess the power of suggestion does work.
