t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.


Hens They Are...Phew...

Can you believe how huge these little girls are getting! I think we are in the clear for any "rooster" mishaps. Two months old and no crowing. I do have to say these are going to be some darn healthy eggs.
Guess what their favorite things to munch on in my garden are? My once luscious dark green kale and leafy broccoli. The little trouble makers!
Look at them run to the hen house. They know they are in trouble.
