It's been a quiet week at the Coop de Grace. . .

 . . .but not so quiet at The Garden Gate. Lots of hornbook frames to make for the new Plum Street Samplers Salem Hornbook (available at your local needlework shop);

and lots of preparation for our annual golf tournament/fund raiser for Sunshine Acres Children's Home in Mesa, Arizona, a worthy cause if there ever was one;

and East Valley Charities
and trying to finish up a bathroom remodel. (NEVER again!) Photos coming soon :~)

The most excitement around the coop was the introduction of Greek yogurt into the girls' diet. It is a great source of protein, and I am still trying to get them quickly through their molts. I think it must be working, as Bea's feathers are coming in rather nicely. Compare this neck photo with the last neck photo and the difference is obvious. She looks almost normal again.

So short but sweet, that's the news from The Coop de Grace and The Garden Gate, where all the gardeners are strong, the chickens good looking and the eggs are above average. (My apologies to Garrison Kellior.)

About how much yogurt per bird are you giving, and how often? Brilliant excuse for getting that yogurt maker I want!!

Your girls are most pampered indeed! Perhaps you have you a bit of extra room in the "coop" for a non-feathered gal (me)?

Love to all...
