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.
These chickens need a coop. They are eating my house!!! Or at least the insulation on my air conditioning pipe.
I had to laugh at an article my father-in-law sent me from USA Today about backyard chickens. It said "I just can't think of any drawbacks to them." Hah. They should come check out my garden and pipe insulation.
