Let's just say the bite habit was easily broken with a reward, ahem, bribe, of a "big sweet treat" from the gas station across the street from our house. Henry very much enjoyed his York Peppermint Patty and hasn't attempted to bite since the inception of his 'bite chart'. However, it seems like pushing is going to need a daily reward since we are having a difficult time making it through the morning, much less the whole day, without pushing. Better it is, but problem solved it is not.
Taylor got a mushroom kit from his mama for Christmas. We've enjoyed watching the mushrooms grow and we've enjoyed eating them. Win. Win. Now I just need to google a bit and find out how to duplicate the process without the kit. Mushroom spores, coffee grinds and a box seem like it should be easy enough.
See that little bitty egg on the left? Either one of our hens has begun laying freakishly small eggs or one of our hens is just now laying eggs after living at our house for almost 5 months. It is a mystery.
