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!

A Quick Update on Henrietta

Sunday, April 01, 2012

First, I want to thank all of you for your concern for our littlest hen and for all the great advice that you gave.  Henrietta is still recuperating in her new basement condo from her bullying incident.  She is no longer just sitting on the roost and actually greeted me at the door to her cage yesterday.  As usual, she was talking to me softly as she enjoyed some salad greens and banana.  She is such a sweet little hen.

The terrible wound on her neck is healing and, for that, I am very grateful.  It's on my plate today to get her re-homed back outside and with the flock (but still separate) so that she can be with the other hens.  I'm sure she is lonely.

Today, J. and I will be cogitating on how to do that, as well as doing more planting in the raised beds, transplanting tomato seedlings into larger pots, and fixing plaster walls.  A rabbit has been spotted in the yard, so we'll be rabbit-proofing also. 

Don't you wish you were here for this fun time on the farm?  I hope you enjoy your day!
