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!

They're So Fluffy! (CUTENESS ALERT)

The new residents over at the local Tractor Supply are quite over-the-top adorable, aren't they?

We did actually have a reason to stop in last night other than just to "ooo" and "aahh" over the sweet little chicks.  Every time we go out to water the chickens, Henrietta's water bowl is low or almost empty.  J. and I have been thinking that she must be the thirstiest hen in the world.  But on further inspection yesterday, we found a tiny little pin-size hole in the bottom of the pan that we had been using - it was an old pan that came along as a "freebie" in a box of stuff that I bought at an auction.  Problem solved:  the water had been slowly draining out.  So off to TS we went to find her a new one. 

That is...after J. was able to pry me away from the little chicks.

And the ducklings.  Aaah!

And more chicks.

I want one!

I'm operating on cute overload right now.

BTW, Henrietta is one spoiled pet chicken.  New water bowl and, last weekend, we bought her a newer, bigger enclosure.  With a real gate and everything!  Very uptown.....  We may put that together tonight, so I'll post pics.

It's going to be a balmy 75 degrees today and I'm taking the afternoon off to bask in the sun while I can.  And maybe get some prep work done in the garden while I'm at it.  *wink*

Ta ta til later,

I've shared this as part of this week's Farm Girl Blog Fest. You might wanna check it out!

  1. Awww, I always go look at the chicks at my local hardware store too. They haven't ever had ducks though.
