We had a fun and busy weekend here with Grandma Allison! The kids got spoiled by all the attention and stickers, and we managed to get outside a little despite the less than stellar weather.
We also finally said goodbye to Big White. She was a nice chicken, but far, far too large for her own good. In fact, it really was amazing just how big that chicken was. We had friends over on Saturday and roasted her up. Then the next day we had chicken pot pie, and the next day chicken soup. Both with enough leftovers for lunches. For everyone. That is five meals from one chicken. That's a lot of meat. It made us think harder about raising meat birds, but that will have to wait until next year. We are also suspecting that the Little One, the bantam, may be a rooster. So he may not have a flock of his own for long.
